In some early good news from the Tour de France rest day, Continental has announced the return of the GP5000 cream sidewall tyres, and this time they are here to stay.
We first saw the classic looking cream sidewalls on Continentals popular GP5000 tyres last year in a limited run TDF edition. Those tyres were only available in 25mm and sold out very quickly.
Fast forward 12 months and Continental has answered the deafening roar to make the tyre and permanent feature and introduced a 28mm option. This is good news!
In more good news, the construction and compound used in the cream and transparent sidewall tyres are identical to the original black GP5000, so the new tyres should retain the same performance and puncture resistance properties of the popular all-round tyre.
The new cream sidewalls tyres are available now, priced at €64.90
