Just did the Tour of Flanders and Paris Roubaix Challenges on a CX-bike with Vittoria Hyper 35,s (run at 60 psi)and it worked out really well. The 35 mm tires gave me free choice of where I would ride the secteurs yesterday without any fear of a puncture. They feel much heavier than a road tire, but I had no problem riding with groups going at my normal speeds. I also suspect that on coarse and bad tarmac the Hypers are nearly as fast as skinnier tires. Being slicks you have to watch out cornering on gravel though ! I hope someone will make an affordable lighter large volume slick tire.
