  • The reference tyres

    The Grand Prix 4000 S II is the reference tyre in the road bike market and has gone through numerous stages of evolution. Our fl agship tyre now gets a facelift! The discreet bead strip allows us to colour coordinate the tyre to match your bike perfectly without losing the BlackChili tread performance.

    We have also expanded the size range with an additional 28 mm version added. This provides improved grip in poor riding conditions, increased puncture protection and greater comfort. The proven aspects of the 4000 S II remain unchanged.

    Vectran breaker for unsurpassed puncture protection, advanced BlackChili compound for low rolling resistance and sensational grip, and handmade in Germany of course!
    Vectran Breaker - Vectran’s advantage
    Vectran is spun from Vectra liquid crystal polymer, which results in a thread that is thermoplastic and has multifi laments.

    This semicrystalline material is harder then aramid, has five times higher tensile strength than steel and in addition, is also lighter than comparable nylon thread. Vectran maintains these attributes even in the most adverse weather conditions.

    BlackChili Compound
    This unique tread rubber mixture which is only produced in our German factory has revolutionised bicycle tyres. The resultant compound showed a new relationship between grip and rolling resistance. This ‘Elevated level’, as it was previously known, was given the name ‘BlackChili’.

    Countless test wins that were shown in laboratory tests show a tangible benefi t. The latest polymers, nanoscale soot particles and optimized fi llers all guarantee a unique performance, from downhill MTB tyres to the time trial tyres of the ProTour, they are second to none in their respective areas. BlackChili Compound improves rolling resistance by 26 % and provides 30 % more grip than activated silica compounds.

    Premium tyres with BlackChili Compound also impress with higher mileage and unlike many multi-compounds, provide a constant ride from the fi rst to the last kilometre.

      High quality and durable tyre
      Great tyre. Durable and fast rolling. I've used them for 2 years with only one puncture.
      The do run wide so check frame clearance.

      Very Nice tires, runs larger than indicated
      Excellent tires thus far. A bit wider than the 23mm specified but no larger than a 25mm. In fact these lay flush with the sides of the super wide enve rims. Basically both the benefits of a 23 and a 25 with rolling resistance since most tires are running wider than indicated sizes. No sidewall issues yet, fortunately, and sticks to the road nicely on turns. Very happy with the purchase and price.

      Best clincher tyres
      Excelent fast and reliable tyre, specially the 25mm width. I have been using those since 2016 and never really had an issue about them, and only 2 flats ever since.
      Best all around choice.

      Best all around road tire
      Best combination of grip, rolling resistance, comfort and puncture protection. There may be faster, lighter, or more puncture proof tires, but none combine the best of all worlds like this tire.
