Attack/ Force & SuperS Tube

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Attack/ Force & SuperS Tube

I have been running myself crazy trying to decide which tire I am going to race on this year and I think I have concluded the Conti Attack/ Force and some SuperSonic tubes are going to be my best option. These things wouldn't see more than 1,500 miles of use all year so durability isn't a major concern, its all about speed. As long as the SuperSonic tubes don't decentigrate on me they are good. I also considered Maxxis Crouchevel, GP4000s, Vredistien Tricomp or SuperLight, Schwable Ultremo, and Vitoria Open Corsa. And then theres latex tubes also. I know the last thing we need is another which tire thread but I am being very specific about it. And I guess the only real question I have is if the SuperSonic tubes are any good.

I think you're way over thinking this. I don't think your tire selection amongst the ones listed, or the supersonic tube vs any other decent tube is going to cause you to win or lose a race.

Schwalbe Ultremo R (they're very light). But like stated before, in all reality they wont make a difference compared to any decent tire.

4000s for me. The chili compound.

I dont like having different size on the tires. And you can get the 4000s from pbk for about 50% off retail

I like my Attack/Forces. Got them on two of my three road bikes.

There's very little difference between them and the 4000S, and the size difference thing is probably a gimmick.

i ride different sizes (25 in back 23 up front) and i enjoy it. I'm big so the 25s help with that but i don't need one in front. i ride gp4000s with performance store-bought lunar light tires. thats my winning combo after trying dozens of tires (including all the ones you've listed).
