Wondering if anyone has any experiences using these for touring?

 I can't comment on the Strada.
However, the Challenge Gravel Grinder 38 x 700 tire has earned high praise from folks who ride mixed surfaces. They really well with relatively low pressure which makes for a nice smooth ride. Worth considering if they fit your frame.

I installed the similar Clement X'PLOR MSO 40 x 700 on my touring bike. No touring yet, but the tires are quite nice. Smooth on gravel roads (30 lbs. front/35 lbs. rear - 145 lb rider), very quiet on pavement. The MSO also comes in 32 x 700.
