I am looking for a durable mid priced tubular tire.
These will be an everyday tire.
They will be on a set of escape rims with a dt rear hub and a american clasic micro front hub.
Not looking for a lite tire for these wheels. Just something that will last.
I have a set of Challenge CRITERIUM tires on my zero component wheels for our fast and mountain rides.
Just do not like to run the carbon wheels on my every day rides.
The tufo s22 seems like it might fit the bill. also the Schwalbe Milano are an option.
Any thing else were I can get away with below $100 per set that is durable?

Thanks Brian

Sorry I don't have an answer to your question. But I have actually bourght the Challenge Critterium as my durable pay of tubulars. Haven't ridden them yet, so I am interested in hearing how you find them?

Vredestein Volante are really cheap and very durable. You could probably go touring on them.

Vittoria Rally. Cheap and great for training. It'll last for years too. :)

I've used Conti Sprinters as daily rollers for years and they hold up well. Not the best ride quality but more than adequate. You can find them for $30-40 a tire pretty easily. Cheaper than a lot of clinchers now days.

Conti Sprinter Gatorskin (heavier) or Steher (lighter) would be good everyday options.
