To celebrate the 2021 Tour de France, Continental has today announced the return of the cream sidewall Continental Grand Prix 5000 road tyre, which joins the transparent sidewall and traditional black tyres to form the new colours range.

With the battle for the famous yellow, green, white, and polka dot jerseys well underway, Continental will celebrate and reflect on the iconic styling and history of Le Tour’s famous colour range with its own expanded colour offering.

The new range is designed to offer more aesthetic choice for road riders and racers wanting to use the industry benchmark for all round performance, the Grand Prix 5000 road tyre.

The full range of colours all benefit from the same best-in-field features as the core Grand Prix 5000 tyre model:

  • Active Comfort Technology designed to reduce vibration and for the smoothest possible ride
  • Vectran Breaker for high-class puncture protection
  • LazerGrip for outstanding cornering
  • Continental’s unique Black Chili compound for the best possible balance between grip, mileage and low rolling resistance.
