Continental Grand Prix 5000 cream sidewall edition is back for the Tour de France - and will stay in the range afterwards

Tyre first launched at last year's Tour as a limited edition becomes a permanent fixture in the range and now includes a 28mm version

Continental has announced the return of the cream sidewall Grand Prix 5000, which joins the traditional black and the transparent sidewall versions in the German brand's flagship road tyre range. 

Originally available as a special edition for the Tour de France 2020, Continental says it has responded to ongoing customer demand for the cream wall colourway by making it a permanent feature in the expanding Grand Prix 5000 clincher lineup (the tubeless Grand Prix 5000 TL is still only available in black).
