Continental Grand Prix with kevlar bead - size 25-559. These are lightweight, thin and work. Kevlar bead makes them difficult to mount on rim, but they are narrower than the Mavic 217's they are fitted to. Tyre pressure is 100 to 110lbs so Floor pump necessary. At this pressure, don't find any potholes but they do make a difference to speed and rolling resistance. On the grip side, did a 65 miler in torrential rain, and grip not a problem, even on high speed cornering. Did not like the Few excursions I made onto the verge though, but if you want a slick tyre, just like the roadies, then this is the one for you. And it works.
