For my winter bike I am looking for fast 32 mm tires.
It is an older cross bike (cantis) so clearance is not an issue and I could use the extra comfort.

Right now I am using 28 mm GP 4000 S2 but these are not available in 32 mm.

Anyone using this wide tires on their bikes?

I was running Panaracer Gravelking 32c - pretty satisfied. Not expensive.
Now I have Vittoria 30C tire - pretty impressive by the tire, but realized there's no need for endurance bike for me (Trek Domane).

Challenge makes pretty good "fatter" slicks.
- Strada Bianca (Vulcanized) come in 33 and 36
- Strada Bianca PRO (Handmade?) come in 30 and 36

Compass too
- Barlow 38
- Bon Jon 35
- Stampede 32

Another vote for the Strade Bianca Pro 700x30. The ones I have measure 31.5mm on DT Swiss R23 wheels.

Compass Bon Jon was one of the fastest tires tour tested despite being a much thicker tread than anything near it.

I just put Bon Jons on my gravel bike and absolutely love them. Fast and comfortable!

I second the Compass suggestion. Very good tires.

I ran Hutchinson sector 32's on my cxbike at the start of the winter. Found them pretty nice, nice minimal tread for this size of tyre.

I am tempted to give compass tires a go. pretty expensive though.

Something to consider is that they are a considerably thicker tread than a typical road tire despite the light casing and should last a long time. I have a set of Babyshoe Pass TCs that I've put a good bit of miles on with no visible wear yet.

Measure them, 28mm GP 4000s *are* 32mm wide.

Ok, mine were like 31.6 on 18c rims...

They're fast, but they ride like garden hoses.

Grand Bois Cypres EL? I just got a few sets and they measure a true 32mm. Wonderful ride too.

My conti GP 4000 S2 28's are 31 mm on DT swiss R60 rims (18 mm internal ) at 4,5 bar (65 PSI).
Strangely my conti GP 4000 S2 in 25 are as wide as the Conti 4 season in 28 mm.

How wide are the rims you used on the grand bois cypress ?
