    My new crosser has a Mavic CrossRide Disc wheelset (622x19c)

    It came with Racing Ralphs fitted (33-622 / 28×1.3) which look great for cross and rough stuff, but I’d like a set of roadie tyres for putting in some tarmac miles.

    Ideally something relatively puncture-proof, with reflective sidewall strips (I like those), light enough, and fast but suitable for a road newbie (i.e. not razor edge)

    Thoughts?

    Which Vittoria Randonneur ton?

    The Randonneur Pro looks nice – pretty light too (420g for 700×32 according to their website)
    How puncture prone is it compared to something like the Marathon?

    Any thoughts on the Conti Contact Reflex?
    Quite a bit heavier at 550g for the 700×32 but £17 cheaper than the Vittoria Randonneur Pro – I use the MTB equivalent on my commuter and they seem okay.

    Do any of the Schwalbe Marathons come with reflective sidewalls?

    Wiggle has 8 different Vittoria Randonneurs ton! 😀

    The cheapest ones are the Vittoria Randonneur Cross City at £11.99 but they look quite knobbly for road use.

    The Vittoria Randonneur City Tyre looks better at £13.50 – is that the one you mean?
