I recently started using folding Vittoria Randonneur Hyper. 330 grams in a 700x32 size, 90 psi max, smooth road tread, 120 tpi, triple flat protection and all-weather compound.
Awesome tire. These are fast, supple and with a great ride quality. They perform like a 700x25 training (mid-grade) tire, but are more forgiving on bad pavement and can be used on dry gravel.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
