Continentals flagship Grand Prix 4000 S II Black Chili road bike tyre is widely regarded as one of the best race tyres available. Black Chili rubber and Vectran puncture protection help to set this tyre apart from the competition.
- Puncture protection: Vectran breaker for unsurpassed puncture protection
- Rubber Compound: Black Chili compound for low rolling resistance and sensational grip
- Colour: The discreet bead strip allows us to colour coordinate the tyre to match your bike perfectly without losing the BlackChili tread performance
- Casing: Constructed of 3 plies, totalling 330 TPI
- Design: Handmade in Germany
Vectran is a multi-fibred thermoplastic yarn that as well as being highly resistant to penetration is also very light meaning that you don't need to sacrifice performance to reduce the likelihood of punctures.
The high-performance Black Chili rubber compound combines the 3 main attributes of a great tyre; low rolling resistance, good grip and longevity. Continental achieves these seemingly mutually exclusive attributes by adding carbon black nanoparticles to the rubber. The very small size of these particles allow them to conform to imperfections in the road without slowing the tyres down or wearing excessively.
Note: Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

I haven´t found better one yet. Ideal for comfortable and save rides.

These tyres are excellent, fast and grippy however I have had a few issues. I bought a pair and the first tyre had a manufacturing defect. This was replaced and after that I was away! My only gripe was the rear didn't last long at all. I think that's partly due to the weather and some of the roads around me are quite rough.

I haven't tested a huge amount, but i've had two pairs of these and they have changed the ride quality and "feel" quick. Ive also only had one puncture in a lot of miles

How to check your current tyre size?
Take a look at the sidewall of your current tyres and you’ll see one or two sets of figures;
One is the traditional size like 700x28c or 27.5x2.2. The first figure is the tyre diameter(size). The second is tyre width. Note: road bike sizes are in mm, MTB sizes are in inches.
The other set of figures you may see is ETRTO sizing like this 28-622. The first number here is tyre width while the second number relates to wheel diameter.
Here is a comparrison chart for traditional and ETRTO sizing to help you choose the correct tyre size.

Will this tyre fit my wheel?
Your new tyre must be the same diameter as your current one (to fit your wheel rim).
Then, you need a choose a tyre which will fit your frame.
Road bike tyres are generally 21 – 28mm wide
MTB tyres can range from 1.5”-5”
To make things complicated road tyres are measured in mm, while MTB tyres are in inches.
How wide is too wide
You want to leave at least 4mm clearance between your frame and tyres to prevent rub and allow for mud clearance.
Measure the following areas on your frame:
Fork crown (top)
Brake calipers (make sure you squeeze them)
Subtract 4mm and you’ll have the maximum width your frame can handle.
