Product Description

Tough all-weather performance. The Continental Grand Prix 4 Season is a high-performance road tyre the is built to hold up under the most challenging conditions while still giving you the rapid rolling performance you need.

Key Features:

  • Rubber compound: Max Grip Silica - for optimized wet weather adhesion
  • Casing: 330 tpi
  • Puncture protection: Vectran Breaker – synthetic liquid crystalline polymer layer, prevents objects piercing through the tread
  • Bead: folding

Thanks to its DuraSkin™ anti-tear fabric and two Vectran anti puncture strips, the Grand Prix 4-Season holds up under extreme conditions. In the Paris- Roubaix race, the "Hell of the North", cyclists equipped with DuraSkin™ enhanced tyres have the fewest tyre related problems during the race. Incorporating our special wear resistant carbon compound, the tyre is characterized by very good mileage performance as well as excellent adhesion on wet roads and at low temperatures.

With 23, 25, 28 & 32mm versions, the Grand Prix 4-Season makes it possible to select the right tyre for various road qualities, type of bike and comfort requirements. A double Vectran™ Breaker belt under the tread raises the puncture and cut protection to the highest level available on the market. Featuring a total of five plies beneath the tread, plus a sixth Duraskin layer, it's ideal for rough sportives and general bad road conditions.

"Puncture resistance is way above that offered by the fastest race tyres yet rolling resistance feels pretty similar. Grip is excellent, particularly in the wet." Grand Prix 4 Season - 9/10 - Cyclist.co.uk

My best tyre yet
by Matthew D on 11/09/2015

I cannot say enough good things about these tires, they are supple, corner well, durable and (as long I keep the pressure above 90psi) I never have to worry about punctures. Value for money for a regular cyclist : since they last longer than anything else I have ridden previously. An investment with your contact with the ground !

Build to expectation
by Chung L on 07/07/2015

The supposed "all-rounder" is just that - you can use it for any occasion, and as the name suggest, in any season. I bought this as winter training/commuting wheels, but found them just as quick, if not quicker, than the usual Vittoria Rubino Pro, and since the 4-seasons run at a lower psi, it was also comfier. However, compared to its in-house rival, the Gatorskin, the 4-season do have some drawbacks. It is more expensive, and it uses a softer compound which means it will last shorter. However, the softer compound does mean better cornering in wet conditions. Of course, the 4-season uses the same protection system as the Gatorskin, so you're sure that punctures will be infrequent.

Conti 4 seasons
by Robert H on 15/06/2015

I like these tyres, and was recommended to use them by a friend. I like the security of a treaded tyre when the roads are wet.

Solid Tyre
by Roger M on 16/09/2014

Good choice for reliable use through the rougher months. Not quite the grip of a summer slick as you'd expect but good enough to maintain confidence with just the odd squirm. Puncture resistance good breached only by the odd flint from the dreaded surface dressing which is probably inevitable. All in all recommended.
