Details

The Grand Prix Force is a rear-specific tire. Because more of your weight is on the rear, and it's responsible for driving you forward, the Force uses a harder, thicker compound for extended tread wear. Also, the 5-ply, 24mm-wide casing offers excellent puncture resistance and a superb ride while keeping the tire weighing down to just 210 grams. When ridden with its partner on the front, the Grand Prix Attack (sold separately), you have a combination that's hard to beat.

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.
