what makes a tire roll well on pavement, is the smooth slick tread.
the knobby ness is a lot of squirm and heat taken from the rolling resistance ( increases )
but the knobbyness may be required to corner fast, in the dirt.
1) I dont Race ..
Continental Travel Contact made only in a 26" or 700c 37mm is a smooth center band and
adds a row of Knobs on the edges.
Something like that? a bit more weight in the tire, due to puncture band and the gatorskin sidewall Mesh..
what tire did the winner last year use?
