Wolber-Moulton Ribbed 32-369 (17x1 1/4) 7.5 bar (110 psi) 260.4 g (linear ribbed tread pattern, black wall, made in France by Wolber which is owned by Michelin) Z.K.
The ribbed tread tires are marked 70 psi on the sidewall, but can be run at a much higher pressure. The reason they still carry the low psi figure is that the molds haven't worn out. Matt Dekker
There is an ultra high performance Alex Moulton 140 psi slick 17" tire which has slightly lower rolling resistance and better grip than the standard ribbed tire. Due to its high cost (usual retail is well over $100, each), and shorter lifespan, it should only be used for events where every advantage is necessary. Matt Dekker
