Hello there!
What would you guys choose for rear wheel for 60k race on good roads - older Schwalbe Ultremo 22mm or new Vittoria Corsa Crono CS 290tpi? I've punctured 3 tubs in 3 weeks and I run out of good tubs just before the race.

Why not a Corsa Evo CX?

Crono doesn't seem like a good option if you puncture so often

What about conti tubs? they are emant to have better puncture protection at the expense of some rolling resistance.

I glued Cronos and it was good enough for the win.
