Outdoor Clincher recommendations

Any recommendations for clinchers for outdoor track use? More specifically Hellyer. I am still a track noob so dont need anything crazy. Someone locally mentioned Veloflex Records? I had a look and the internet thinks they are disposable? I was also considering G2's. Would love any advice

Any good racing racing specific road tire will work at Hellyer. Conti 4000/5000. Vittoria Corsa speed. Michelin Power Competition. If you're using it for training or weekly racing, I'd stay away from the TT specific tires just because you'll go through those tires quickly. If you ever flat, it's usually because of the surface of the infield, not the track surface itself.

Thanks for the replies. I ordered some Vittoria Corsa Speed G+ clinchers on sale for $34.00. They seem to rate pretty good.

Finally got out to the velodrome with the Vittoria tires and latex tubes. They feel great!
