The Michelin Lithion 2 V2 Folding Tyre is the flexible bead tyre for training purposes
Offering excellent endurance, grip and good performance
Weight: 220g (700x23mm)
I use to ride Michelin ProRace 3s 799x25s and enjoyed them as a good comfortable tire that was fairly durable. Then I heard good things about the Lithions. Gave it a try and Wow, great tire for the money! Despite note having the numbers, i.e., low tpi, I felt NO difference! Further, it's substantially cheaper! It is my go to tires!

Very good training tire
I've been using the Michelin Lithion 2 folding tire for a while as a fast training tire and so far it's been a great value. Long tread wear, good grip, reasonable light weight, easy to mount, good comfortable performance down to ~85 psi and low price make it a great value. The tire starts to perform even better as it gets scrubbed in and begins to feel more like a pure slick.

Is a folding tyre the same as a tub ? ie; sewed around the inner tube and glued to the rim.
Thanks for the query.
No, a folding tyre is a clincher and can be used on 'normal' wheels.
