To create the brand new Grand Prix 5000 tyre the German brand have completely overhauled the ever popular GP4000 II. They claim a 12% reduction in rolling resistance and a 20% increase in puncture protection – sounds pretty good! The GP 5000 also marks the brand’s entry into the road tubeless market as there are both clincher and tubeless versions available for this model.
