Looking at my first set of tubs and they will see some training along with the racing.
My training often requires riding a bit of road to get to the trails (not massive kms) but there can be glass/debris strewn along them thanks to a lack of public drinking and open container laws here.
I've not had a real puncture problem thus far with my Vittoria XGs/WTB Crosswolfs, but with the switch to tubs I'm obviously a bit more concerned about not flatting.
Apart from running sealant and crossing my fingers/keeping my eyes open should i be looking at certain brands more than others?
I have loved my XGs for an all-round tyre so was thinking about going for them in a tubular, but all the positive reviews for challenge had me considering them but i'm wary of how they will deal with any sharp non-natural objects.
Or am I nervous about nothing... I'm pretty excited about getting these wheels.
