Continental releases special edition tan wall GP5000

The limited edition tyre has been released to celebrate the 2020 Tour de France

Whilst the actual 2020 Tour de France is still some weeks away, Continental has stuck with the release of its limited edition tan wall GP5000 tyre on what would have been the second rest day of the original race schedule.

Tan wall tyres have seen a resurgence over the last couple of years but until today Continental has stood resolute in only offering full black race tyres throughout its range. This is all changed with this Tour de France special version of the GP5000, one of our all-time favourite tyres here at Cycling Weekly.
