General Information
Very high quality tires used by many top racers. The GP3000 tires replaced the original Grand Prix tires. They have excellent handling and traction plus good puncture resistance. I don't usually ride in the rain but the times I've been on a wet road surface the traction was very good. I run them at 95 PSI. There seems to have been several different tires with the GP3000 designations. This style was available with black or brown sidewalls and steel or Kevlar beads. They were discontinued and replaced by the GP4000 tires several years ago.

Brand Information(click to expand)
 The Continental AG (in Germany commonly known as Conti) is today one of world's largest tire manufacturers. Most bicycle tire production is located in Korbach where tubular tires are still handmade. In the early years they were very successful (for example, in the years 1896 and 1897 they paid out a 55%-dividend!) and have grown from a plant with 250 employees in 1875 up to 13.000 in 1914. This rapid development originates from the prosperity of the bicycle industry, itself quickened by the invention of the pneumatic tire.
