  • GP5000 Black Chili Compound: This reduces rolling resistance by 26%. Increases grip by 30% and as a result, the mileage by 5%.
  • GP5000 Vectran Technology: Vectran is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fibre from a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran is a liquid-crystalline polymer (LCP) that is spun from a melted liquid polymer called Vectr. After that, it’s processed further in to a multi-strand thread. Vectran, like Spider silk, has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight. Therefore, it’s perfect as a puncture protection insert. A Vectran Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts. In addition, rolling resistance is not adversely affected.
