I hope the keep making the 4000, I want to try them this summer to5000 was a bit quicker and could do tubeless.
4000 couldn't do tubeless but seems to last longer.
Apparently 2km/h faster so you’ll reach your 2km boundary before you set off.I hope the keep making the 4000, I want to try them this summer to
see how big a difference they make to my best efforts, and keep my
current tires as spares.
That is if we get to travel more than 2km again.
I had those and they were a total p*ncture fest on Oxfords wet roads. After a couple weeks swapped them out for Conti four seasons and lived a happier life. GP5000 are my next tyre...Try the Vittoria pave tyres ---- very comfy ride and responsive and cheap at less than £25
It does look from their availability as if the distribution of 4000s is being truncated. So the 4000s are not being sold at a reduced price - normally less than £33. So I think the 5000s (@ £36 or £70 for 2) are more or less on a par, assume by Continental design - it is the 4000's successor. The latter apparently wear out at less mileage so more frequent replacement (sales). But the two tyres' target market is pretty well identical. Do I buy one or a pair?Until the 5000s come down to the same price as the 4000s (still not cheap), I’ll stay with the 4000s.
