For those who are interested: Criterium RS will be available in 30mm version at the end of June - confirmed by the company's customer support.
Hopefully a 32 or 33 isn't too far off. The 27 (or latterly 28) are a bit small relative to Contis or Tufos for me to consider it.
I'm happy with the 27 on my Roval Rapides. Pretty fast, comfy and looks awesome. Next one will be the 30mm version for sure, though.

Didn't explain very well. I mean if the 30 fits the same sizing scheme it's likely to still be too small for me. I'd want the 32 or 33. Also have big hopes for RR numbers on a slightly bigger tire. Challenge HTLRs seem to better the bigger they get.

I'd be happy to see them in 32, agreed. Especialy given the fact that they are "true to size" even on wide rims.

I bought a 28 and it was just a rebadged 27, which seems dishonest. Other than being labeled 28 it was exactly the same as the 27. I could find no difference. I hope that the 30 is actually wider.

Raced in the wet on these 2 weeks ago. One of the worst experiences I've ever had on a bike. Sliding out 3 times in 15 minutes before I pulled the plug. Fantasic dry weather tire, but if youre racing, make sure you have a dedicated set of backup wheels with different tires for the wet.

mounted a 28mm on a 21mm IW - woaw - unless folks can share their secrets - i'd hardly want to ride these far away from home - i tried to get air in them tubeless style but no luck - will try to mount a tube - but another day

update: mounted with a tube - 28mm measures 27.5mm on a 21mm IW rim @60psi

Take a look at the how to video Challenge posted a couple weeks back.
