Continental’s Grand Prix 5000 range is its flagship road tire. It’s included a tubeless option since launch, the GP 5000 S TR. This is a tire designated for summer use though, while the tube-only Grand Prix 4-Season has been the brand’s winter tire offering.

The Grand Prix 5000 AS TR is Conti’s latest tire, launched in March 2023 and designed to offer the grip and robustness needed for riding in poor weather along with tubeless compatibility. The AS stands for All Seasons and the TR for tubeless ready.
