I have been happily riding 23mm GP4000S for 2 years, maybe 16000km, and had only a handful of punctures. Now I've done about 3000km on 25mm black GP4000, and I've had a rear wheel puncture each of the last four Sundays, in various places on the tyre. The tyre has very few cuts, other than the nice whole I scored today which caused two punctures.
I'm trying to decide if I'm unlucky or whether I should order the 25mm GP4000S, now that they're available.

For whatever reason, the black chilli comound in the 4000s seems to be about a million times more puncture proof than the run of the mill 4000 series.
Don't know that the GP4000 is now the same as the GP4000s?
I'd only order the 4000s to be sure. Good luck either way.
