I have some 40mm WTB Nano tyres that came on the Cannondale Topstone, but I've been riding it on trails less and less and using it for more road training. Decided to go all in and just turn it into a road training bike with power meter. I want some faster rolling tyres too, but still nice and comfy. Something 30mm to 33 mm, great grip, puncture resistance and can handle the occasional hard packed bit of trail. If I want to hit the trails hard again I've still got the original 40mm Nanos that came with it..

Rims are: some Cannondale own branded affair form what I can tell -Maddux CX 2.0 - maybe this is them with different stickers on:

Any ideas? Haven't shopped around for anything over 25mm in years..

Oh wait, also hoping to get them for around £50 a pair. Have two bikes to do like this :x

Lol, compass tyres will comprehensively blow the budget.

Some well known tyres now come in 30 or 32mm options so check current manufacturers ranges. If you're not requiring tubeless you have a chance to stay within budget although off-road is all about tubeless now.

Good thinking!

Had a quick scan of tyres I know well and spotted a 32mm of the new GP5000!

Little pricey but so tempting...

4 seasons also coming in 32mms and a bit closer to budget. Maybe not as sexy though :P

Nice but a touch too pricey again even when discounted :cry:

Continental Grand Prix 4 seasons come in 23, 25, 28 and 32 mm. I have all four sizes for different purposes. I ride gravel/road and slower roadgrouprides with my 32 mm ones. They are very flat resistant. They will blow your budget with around 40 GBP a tire though.

Compass tires flat very easily. I would stay away even though they look sexy as hell.

@Multebear I'm looking around for those at the moment, hoping they drop really low somewhere this week. Haven't really found a good alternative at the 30 or 32mm width. Continental Ultras and other lower end stuff only within budget right now..
