Anyone have an idea where I can get these in the black/black colourway? Can't seem to find anything but green.
i thought it was the green stripe that essentially defined the pave?
from the vittoria website:
Proven year after year on the notorious roads of classic races like Paris–Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders, Pavé CG is likely the world’s strongest racing tubular. Instantly recognizable by its traditional green tread, now better than ever with our unique 320 TPI casing, and still, naturally, handmade.
Rugged Cotton Tires tubular holds your speed on the toughest parcours
Grip that never lets go, even on greasy cobbles
Preferred by most competitors in early-season pro races
Never had that problem with Paves. They are my wider tire of choice. Conti 4000s' for narrower width.
Got some cash
Bought some wheels
Took it out
'Cross the fields
Hit a wall
But we're alright
I really like the feel of my Open Pave CGs with latex tubes on Hed C2 rims. They measure out at 26.5mm for a sweet ride.
My problem is that I'm liking my Veloflex Roubaixs on Nemesis rims just a hair better so the Hed clinchers have been relegated to standby duty. Maybe I need to work them back into a rotation -- although I'd have to make sure to change out my Arundel Tubi spare bag for my clincher equipped seatpack. That feels like I'd have to think too much when I'm trying to get on the road quickly.
