I dunna like the new Vittoria Corsa's, much preferring the older ones with 320tpi. And the new ones aren't all black.

Any other 320tpi open tubular-style clincher tyres out there?

Thanks.

I've had Veloflex for years and years for racing only which I installed recently and really like them on my Pacenti rims. Bought another pair of gumwall for when I finally wear them out, but that might be a while since I think they're too precious for commuting + going home the long way so taking them off for some other tyres lying around.

Veloflex, cheap, light & fast. Tan or black, 23 or 25mm.

Turbo cottons are nice too.

Grand Bois or Compass aren't 320 TPI cotton, but for some reason they ride even better.

Grand Bois aren't 320 TPI, but they use the 'same' 320 tpi fibres (same/similar thickness), but spread them further apart, giving less threads per inch but a softer casing.

I think all of Challenge's open tubs are 320

If you like the old Corsas there's still plenty of time to stock up on them, there's masses still out in the wild. Just took me 5 seconds to find all black CXIII for £25.
