If you want a Brand Name? Attack/Force Continental.

I´ve used Continental Attack/ Force Tires o My Ksyrium´s SL, and they perform excelente, and haven´t had a Flat in a While. I highly recomend them. What the Bugman Says sounds very logical.

Try out Schwalbe Stelvios.. pretty fast rolling but glue to the road in corners.

But.. as mangolialover says, any race specific tire should do fine. Your technical ability in corners makes a much bigger difference

I use the pro2 races as well, good tires as far as I can tell, I've never had a problem with them.

They're the same tire without the anti-puncture belt, so they'll roll slightly faster and conform to the road slightly better in corners. If the course isn't clean, consider using the standard tire on your rear wheel to avoid flats.

What have you guys found to be the best tire on tight corners.
Best tire I have found are Veloflex Paves- their Vittoria counterparts are also quite nice. I think either make Michelins feel mushy.

The Vittoria Open Corsa are tremendously sticky. Not good at all for training; almost a weekly flat. But man, do they perform.

For durability, can't beat the Vredestein Fortezza Tri-comps.

Long lap crits and road race on Tri-comps because they are tough and roll well, short lap crits (1km) I use tubulars with sprinters or a light wheelset with Vittoria CX clinchers. If I had to pick one tire to do it all, it would be the Tri-comps.
