Now that they make a 22mm I'm considering using these instead of Vittoria EVO's. A bit pricey, though.

Edit: This tire is ridden almost exclusively outdoors. Highly recommended.
+1 on the Veloflex Record. I had one on my Mavic Io for 3 seasons. Even though it saw limited use (big races only), it was still very supple and showed no delamination and very little signs of wear. I would consider using it as an every day training tire. Especially being that I had so many unexplained flats with Conti Stehers over the years.
