Balance in all things.

Continental's Grand Sport Race Tires are a study in balance. Their NyTech breaker mimics Kevlar's resistance to punctures but with a weight and rolling resistance that stay closer to the low levels we expect from racing tires. The Pure Grip Compound in their tread strikes a similar compromise, straddling the intersection of training durability, racing grip, and a price point that lets you run the tire for both applications without guilt. These features, combined with a 180 TPI casing, bring the Grand Sport Races to within 25 claimed grams per tire of the peloton favorite Conti 4000 S II while nearly cutting the price in half.

Good tire

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a good all around tire. It is heavy duty, lasts awhile, and installs/removes easily enough. Down sides: it is a bit heavy and slower rolling.

Nice rubber

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great tires with a solid compound. Being from Utah roads can be very harsh especially with all the road work during the summer. I have found these tires to be very solid and grippy for those road conditions.

Consistent performance`

    28mm version provides enough cushion for less-than ideal roads, and still rolls well and has adequate grip. Hard to beat at the price.

    They're Contis, what can you say?

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I ordered a pair of the GS race tires a couple of weeks ago and, much like any other Continental road tires I've run, they've been great. Easy to mound, fast enough, good grip, and, if the promises of riding buddies hold true, a little more longevity than the GP 4000 S II's that I typically run. As an XC mtb racer, whose road whip is more of a training bike, I figured that at this price, it would make an excellent winter tire choice. Love 'em so far!

    Nice rubber

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These tires are really great. I have run Continental tires on all my bikes for the past few years and I think that they make some of the most durable and high quality rubber.

    Set it and forget it.

      This is my go to road tire of choice. While not the lightest bell at the ball, it certainly is the most consistent. Be it rain, dirt, hot pavement, etc. These tires wear well, are puncture resistant and I am always amazed the miles I am able to get out of a pair,.

      pretty stoked.

      I bought these for my fixed speed and am very happy with the results. I went with the 28mm and the size of the tire seems to absorb the bad Utah roads much better than my previous setup (25mm).

      Unanswered Question

      Do these tires have a roll direction

      I wanted to ask if it would be possible to put a 700 x28 on a 29er mtn bike to make the mountain bike more friendly on road rides. I have a Trek/Gary Fischer Superfly 100 with stock 29er wheels.

      Yup it should work, 29er has the same bead diameter as 700c.
