    Wide tubular/ sew-up tire in 25c-28c size - recommendations

    I am looking for recommendations on wide tubular tires in a 25c-28c size. What is your favorite? I am a big guy - 225 lbs, so I am looking for something wider that the typical 21c race tire.

    Most pro teams are riding 25c+ tubulars now for all races so typical race tire isn't 21c anymore.

    Are you looking for a race tire or everyday tubular?

    I am planning to race, train and just ride (some bit of all three - but mostly do training rides). At 225 lbs a lightweight race tire isn't going to gain me much speed. I mentione 21c because that is what I saw the most common when shopping.

    FMB Roubaix in 27mm
    Veloflex Roubaix/Arenberg 25mm
    Vittoria pave 27mm

    or if you want something slower but more robust, conti sprinter gatorskin in 25.
