Michelin

Axial Pro 20mm They're ugly but the center ridge is designed to be durable and fast, and the side rubber is sticky for cornering traction. I haven't tried them. That's just what Michelin says. $
Axial Pro 23mm Same as above but the larger size is more comfortable and just between you and me, the rolling resistance is the same. $
Axial Select 23mm Michelin's new casing without the ugly GREEN! $
Supercomp HD 20mm The smaller version of a great tire. (If only it were bigger, it would be great too!) Am I biased? $

Veloflex

Pave 22mm

My fastest tire. Made in Italy by the same Italians who used to make Vittoria tires. These have extremely supple sidewalls and grippy treads. If you can't ride tubulars, and want the next best thing, these are it.

No goofy colors, just black tread and a tan sidewall. Cotton casing.

$
Superstar 20mm Just slightly narrower version of the Pave $

 

Vredestein
