A lot of people are excited about the GP5000 (Ollie included) and for good reason. The new tyre is claimed to have 12% lower rolling resistance than the gp4000 in a 25mm. Lower rolling resistance means a faster tyre and interestingly this has been backed up by independent testing. Dr Xavier Disley at Aerocoach recently performed some testing on a pair of 23mm GP4000 and GP5000s and found the 5000s were 4W faster at 45kph.
It doesn’t end there though, also claimed is 20% better puncture protection, an improved construction to reduce vibration and its 5g lighter than the gp4000 too. However, perhaps the most exciting development is THIS - a tubeless ready version. It’s a separate tyre from the clincher. As you can see it looks quite different and has a slightly different bead to help make it airtight. You can run it with an inner tube if you want, but to get the full benefits, Conti would suggest you run it tubeless as by removing the internal friction of the inner tube Conti reckons it has 17% rolling than the 4000.
