|racing: personally I use conti sprinters. thats a very popluar Tub.
the other big ones are vittoria corsa cx's, tufo s33 or s3 lites, veloflex criteriums
there are others but those are the most popular
i train on clinchers, but if you had to train on tubs, i would use something like the hutchinson tubs. they are like 25$ and they are actually decent unlike the cheap vitts or contis (those are POS's!)

|I used to ride Vitoria Corsa & Crono but they got so expensive that I looked elsewhere. I rode Continental Sprinter and Comp GPs and then tried Tufo last year. I had 3 Tufo S3 lite tires fail at the valve stem so I decided to go back to Conti. I still prefer a 19mm Comp GP on the front and a 22mm Sprinter on the rear. Each tire has a little different feel and will either give you confidence or scare you somewhat. I want a tire that gives me a lot of confidence when descending a steep hill and have to corner at speed. Price does not always equate to quality - try different ones and go with what feels best to you.|| |
