Grand Prix 4000 RS / Road Race Tyre

Grand Prix 4000 RS

EUROBIKE AWARD

15% faster then the Grand Prix 4000 that it is based off of and weighing only 180g. Using Black Chili Compound and a Vectran breaker, it is faster then all competitors using a breaker and most of the competitors using no breaker at all. This is achieved without sacrificing wet grip. The tread is reduced to the minimum and the carcass weight as well. This sacrifices 50% of the mileage from the Grand Prix 4000 S, making it a specialty tyre for racing only as the RS, name, meaning RaceSport suggests.

The Grand Prix 4000 RS sets the benchmark for Technology for Road Race Tyres.
