Details

Front and rear tires have to do very different things, so why should they be the same? The front-specific Attack features a sticky tread compound that assures high-speed cornering confidence, while the 22mm width and 4-ply casing cheat the wind and the scale. Because the rear is responsible for driving you forward and it bears more weight than the front, the rear-specific Force uses a hard compound and a 5-ply, 24mm casing for extended life. Put the two together and you have an excellent balance of function, weight and tread life.

Continental's Black Chili rubber compound significantly improves wear, traction and rolling resistance through the use of carbon nanotechnology, microscopic carbon particles in the rubber. These mold better to the ground and have more points of contact, which gives the tire more grip. And, because the compound matrix is formed of more particles, which are connected more tightly with each other, the tire lasts longer. Plus, the smaller particles are more flexible, too, which improves rolling resistance.
Vectran is a liquid-crystal polymer woven into the Grand Prix 4000 as armor against cuts, abrasions and impacts. It's also incredibly flexible to conform to the road's contours enhancing traction and feel. Finally, Vectran resists fatigue caused by repeated flexing, which lengthens the tire's life.

      Great set of tires. Very puncture resistant for the weight. Surprised these haven't caught on better.

      I'm 6'2" and weigh 210 and have had problems getting good mileage out of performance tires.I put 1,985 miles on the first set and changed them only because I did not want to take a any chances doing a rural century. I suspect I could have gotten another 300 to 400 miles on them. After previously getting between 900 and 1,500 miles on tires, I'll continue using these Continentals with confidence.
