My setup:

Rims: Kinlin XR31T
Tires: Schwalbe Pro One 23mm
tape/valves: Stan's
sealant: ~20ml of Stan's
Pressure: 80PSI @ 73kg rider weight

26.2mm wide 50mm deep carbon rims. Stans bits 40ml of stans sealant and 23mm irc formula light tyres.20ml is not enough sealant. The pro one can puncture too easily and you can dump 20ml all over the road and your bike.

On another bike i have 25mm irc roadlites on pacenti sl23 v1 rims with 50ml,of selant in. These are my wet weather wheels well one of them and i am paranoid.
Another set of wheels has 25mm irc formula rbcc tyres and again 50ml of selant in. Rims are pacenti sl23 v1.

I have kinin xr31t front built up but asi have more wheels than i can ride finishing this set of is not a priority.

I was running the 26C Specialized S-Works Turbo Tubeless tires on Bontrager Aelous 5 TLR wheels. Once I got the pressures dialled in the ride was very nice. I dumped in about 35mL of sealant at setup and the tires beaded up really easy. The tires had good grip and I didn't have any flats; but they did wear down quickly.

Outstanding. Though, the 23c RBCC measure just over 24mm on DA 9000 C24 rims, the 25mm Roadlite measure just over 27mm on my brother's Ultegra wheels, and were too close to the chainstays of my 2012 Evo when I swapped to check. The 25 Roadlites also appear noticeably larger than Schwalbe One 25s, which measure just over 26mm on the C24.

I have a few setups.
2 Bontrager Aeolus sets with Schwalbe S-One 30mm tires. These I run them around 60psi. Awesome tires.
1 set Bontrager RXL wheels with Bontrager R3 26mm tires. These I crit race on around 80psi. Fast and grippy.

love them so much (IRC) I started importing them into the u.k just to be able to have some for my bikes. My experience with Schwable tubless road tyres was not good but the IRC are simply outstanding.

On wide rims the 23mm Formula lights are 24mm. the 25mm tubeless tyres are 27mm on wide rims.
Got the new 28mm Formula Pro RBCC tyres but on velocity ailerons they are still 27.5mm. there is something odd about these tyres sitting at the same width on shimano rims and on wide rims.

the 28mm RBCC tyre though is superb. No cuts and and lots of grip. Visually it is different to the 25mm tyre as the 28mm tyre has a file thread but until I quiz IRC at eurobike I am not certain if they have changed the tyre compound. Certainly feels like they have.

I concur. The IRC are outstanding. I especially like the RBCC. I tried the Formula Light, and while it was a nice tire, I found it cut just a bit too easy for our road conditions.

Currently I am running the 23mm RBCC and on my Rails they measure between 25.0-25.5mm.

I run Stans Grail Team and Hutchinson Sector 28 at 60-80 PSI.
sealant either homebrew or Stans or Conti
They are nearly 29mm wide when inflated.
FYI, I run these on CX bike in road mode.

Didn't realize the RBCC now has 28mm version. It's non on IRC's website. Good to know.

Trying this set-up. The tires mounted with a little bit of an effort, but the bead set-up nicely. The tires have not lost any air in 24 hours, without any sealant. Also, the tire-bead stays seated even without much (if any) air pressure.

Had Schwalbe Pro One 25c on the same wheels, but after two flats, decided to try the Panaracer. The only downside on the Panaracer so far is that the 25c tire measured around ~23.5mm @ ~90 PSI. However, was told by Panaracer to keep the tire inflated at 110 PSI over-night and it should stretch a bit; as of right now, the tire measures around ~24.2mm.

Tire: Panaracer Race Evo 3 (25c)
Wheel/rim: Bora 50 (I know, not officially tubeless)
