I'm looking for advice on selecting a tubular tire for track competition. I'm specifically interested in advice on selecting a lower pressure tubular (rated less than 150 psi) versus selecting a higher pressure tubular rated greater than 150 psi.
First of all, is there a manufacturer still producing higher pressure tubulars? If not, this post is irrelevant.
Has anyone used tubulars rated greater than 150 psi on the track?
If so, how does the ride of a higher pressure tubular compare with a lower pressure tubular on various surfaces (asphalt, concrete, wood) in regard to rolling resistance and handling? Various bank angles?
I haven't shopped seriously for any tubulars so I don't know what is available.
My wheels will likely be Zipp 808 or perhaps HED or another Carbon rim. I weigh only 125 lbs. I plan for these wheels and tires to be for all around track racing, not event specific. I'm asking this for my future reference when I start to shop for competition wheels and tires. I don't want to just assume that the higher the pressure, the better the wheels will ride.
If anyone can weigh in with their experience I would appreciate it.
