Continental has announced the release of a new Grand Prix 5000 S TR tyre, which heads the Grand Prix line up as Continental’s best tubeless road tyres, and is the latest in the brand's stalwart Grand Prix range.

Continental says it has reinvented its approach to tubeless road tyres and claims that the latest GP5000 S TR tyre is significantly improved over the previous Continental GP5000 tubeless tyre. The new tyre, which it claims is 20 per cent faster, 28 per cent stronger and 50g lighter, has been in development since 2019 and has already been raced in the pro peloton by multiple teams in 2021 - including Fillipo Ganna’s World Championship time trial victory in September, Tom Pidcock's 5th place at the World Championships, and Sonny Colbrelli, as he rode to victory at the Paris Roubaix, a race that will be marked in the history books due to the unforgiving conditions riders faced in the first wet edition since 2002.
