    From experience, the sweetest clincher there is nearest to tubular tire ride is the Schwalbe Ultremo. Kinda expensive tho.

    Gives a nice supple ride. Can be pumped to 160psi tho I fill them to 120psi. Very light at 180grams. Grippy.

    Other tires concurrently used as comparison are conti GP4000 (very very harsh but durable), Michelin Lithion (good grip but ride is a little heavy and slow, good only up to 110psi), Mich Pro Race 2 (not enuf puncture protection and thread wears easily).

    Another good tire but hard to source is Vredestein Fortessa Comp. Almost as good as the Ultremo.
