Worst Wet Weather Tyres - GP4000
Was over in Belgium to ride Tillf-Bastogne-Tilff and my previous fears of GP4000's in heavy rain were confirmed. 25mm tyres run at 90psi and they were all over the place - at time had to sit down on the climbs because of loss of traction. Worst case was coming down a descent, right-hand hairpin - OK it was negative camber, but my back wheel started sliding, had to straighten-up, heading straight for the barrier and a big drop into a river gorge, before scrubbing off speed and gingerly making the corner. I've come down alpine roads in similar and worse conditions, but never used tyres with such a lack of feel. One this pair wear out - dry use only, no more Contis thankyou.
