I have had good luck with the Bontrager R4 tubulars. Wear well and durable. They are re branded vittoria tires. Consistent weights. Only come in a gum wall though. Plus they are easy to find or order from any trek dealer.

No one here vouching for Vittoria Corsa CXIIIs?

They're the ones i'm riding now and they are my first tubular experience so I don't have a whole lot to compare them to, but as I understand it they come in at under 240g a piece, roll very, very nicely, grip like crazy in the dry and I've put 2300km on the current set and so far, no punctures. That being said I never ride them in the wet. I've heard they can be LETHAL in the wet. But that's why I have a beater bike.

Comparatively cheap too when pitted against the likes of Veloflex.

You can possibly get away with a Veloflex Record in the front an an extreme in the rear. That should be 195g/230g. Ride quality is supposedly really nice with the Record up front.

I can't vouch for the puncture resistance of either but there's a blog, digilloyd that suggests the record front is as good as the sprinters.
