Continental GrandPrix 4000s in Natural / Skin / "Transparent"

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Continental GrandPrix 4000s in Natural / Skin / "Transparent"

I'm in search for something to replace my Vittoria Corsa G+ clinchers, they aren't puncture resistant enough for me.

These things seem to be unicorns but anyone have any leads on Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II clinchers in 25c (I can settle with 28mm too) with the skin/gumwall/natural color?

Took about 12 secs searching on google to find these options. Is this what you're looking for?

worth pointing out though, Continental doesn't make this color scheme tire in 25c -- at least they don't indicate as such on their own website.. so either non 4000 to get 25c, or 23c if it has to be 4000s version.

What my searching awhile ago has shown too. I wound up going with the Grand Prix Classics and they feel pretty good on the bike although it isn't my most racy ride.



Oh yeah, at first I had them on the Antares and that's a fast one. They really felt just fine on it and since I never turn an avg speed under 19 mph on this one they did fine at my speeds.



I would love it if the GP4000s II natural side did exist in 700 x 25!

...to be fair, the 23s do measure closer to 25mm when mounted!

I may settle for the GP Classics in due time if the GP 4000 S are unobtanium or buy normal all black tires like a normal person.
