Product Description

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.

Key Features:

  • 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.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Good tyre but didn't last long
by William B on 27/08/2015

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.

The best tyres IMO
by Rob C on 20/05/2015

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

Good Summer tyre

Good summer tyre. Punctured rather easily on a rainy run.
