Does anyone know of a similar tub (price, weight, puncture resistance) to the conti sprinter that comes in gum wall flavour? They seem great except I really don't like all-black tyres. Cheers

Veloflex Roubaix- gumwall, handmade, latex tube, much better feeling and very durable. My "everyday" tyres are Roubaix/ Arenberg depending on whether I want black or gum. Not continental but I prefer not to ride garden hose :wink:

for cheap gumwall, look at the conti giro, from the weight it's got plenty of rubber, that might make it tougher than the sprinter

I am a fan of the Continental Sprinters as well. Not the most sublime tire but when considering its ride quality*puncture resistance it comes at the very top. They come cheap too (36-44 euros).
Yeah, Sprinters are my go to rain tires too. Grip is very confidence inspiring and apart from a few small cuts, zero punctures over several months of rain rides.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I've actually got conti giros on my Vitus 979 and they feel pretty good, about the same as the veloflex masters (25c) on my other bike but I haven't ridden any other tubs to compare them with. They only come in 22c though, which is OK for cruising around and hill reps, but for normal, longer rides I kinda want something wider.
