    Suggestions on a fat 26' tire?

    I'm looking for a 26" tire in 2.4 or larger with a fast rolling tread for flat packed single track that doesn't weigh a ton for the kids bike front tire. Any suggestions?

    Schwalbe Racing Ralph 26 x 2.4 is pretty fat and nice and light (just north of 500g as I recall). The tread is good for hardpack.

    My son and I are running Rocket Ron Evo 2.4" front tires. Great rolling tires with good traction, cornering is great. These are also tall @ 26.75". Claimed weight is 530 grams. I got to weigh several before purchasing and found one @ 490 grams and another @ 478 grams.
