Road standby: Challenge Paris-Roubaix Pro TLR 27. Pricey for sure, but rolls fast enough for me, and works great on the crappy roads here in Belgium. Always depart the house at 72psi rear, 70psi front, because I'm not a 58kg 22 year old anymore. Regardless, these have a lot of grip, and don't mind getting hammered on broken pavement, cobbles, and gravel, and smooth new pavement (the best!). Due to lack of vulcanization, they are flat out the package, and really tight to get onto the rim, I've never done it without a tire jack. Inflate easily with a track pump, and seat into the bead track without any issues (never run them on hookless, not sure if they can be, though claimed to be UST compatible). They seal up immediately without fuss.
