Schwalbe Marathon Slicks 26x1.35. Thin, so very fast, but most important and surprisingly, very supple, even at max psi, 95 psi. Those, are indeed the best in my opinion. They even have a reflective sidewall, so you can take off those dorky reflectors in your spokes. I got them from triathlete.com for $21/tire. Look around. They are well worth it. If you can find Continental Ultra Gatorskin tires in 26x1 1/8, those would be another good contender since they have the longest wear of any tire. They are not as soft, but since they are thinner, they will be faster.
