I rode the 320 TPI Vittoria's last year and Conti Comps this year.

I'd give the Vittoria's the nod on comfort, but the hammer blow advantage for the Conti's is that the grip does not vanish the second the road gets vaguely damp.

It really depends on for what you're going to use the tyres. For good weather riding (exclusively) - Vittoria. For allround riding and racing (with weather being unpredictable) - Conti. Vittorias (and Veloflexes) just suck when the road gets wet, regardless of the tyre pressure.

Oh I completely agree- on a summer only, never-in-the-rain wheelset Vittoria every time.

Living in the UK though it's sometimes impossible to guarantee that the weather in which you set out for your ride will be that in which you return.

I found the Conti ride to be very "harsh" and the tires are VERY difficult to mount... I think its the vectran in there?? All I know is its a fight and half and I never was able to mount one without leaving glue all over the place....

I currently have CX Evos on my TT wheels, and they have never been an issue.. I personally like the Veloflex line the best, but the tires I wanted weren't available at purchase time....
