The immensely popular GP4000S tyre was unveiled in 2007 and has now been updated to include the BlackChili Compound - a cutting-edge rubber compound to help you go faster for longer. Equipped with a 30% increase in grip in wetter weathers, a 26% decline in rolling resistance, and a 5% improvement in mileage, the GP4000S II is the ultimate tyre for racing cycles and recreational cyclists alike.
The build of the tyre includes an impressive Vectran Breaker, a high-end synthetic material with huge tear resistance for reliable and durable year-round use, while the mix of synthetic and natural rubbers in the BlackChili Compound delivers phenomenal traction and rolling, making for one of Continental's most impressive bike tyres ever.
BlackChili Compound: Continental refines newly developed synthetic rubbers with natural rubber with the proven high-performance tread compound. The GP4000S II uses these rubbers with special nanometric carbon soot particles, which are optimised in shape and surface properties for best uses for the intended tyre. Tyres with BlackChili Compound reach an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to the previous best Activated Silica Compound, BlackChili tyres have 26% less rolling resistance, a 30% higher friction value (grip) and a 5% increase in mileage.
Vectran Breaker: Vectran is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fibre from a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran is a liquid-crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran is spun from melted liquid polymer Vectra and processed further to a multi-strand thread. Spider silk, like Vectran, has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight – exactly the right properties to process into a premium Continental bike tyre as a puncture protection insert. A Vectran Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker. Vectran Breaker does not adversely affect the rolling resistance.
