    Largest volume tire to fit a Reign X rear triangle (for snow riding)?

    Hi!

    I'm putting a Reign X together and hope to get a bunch of miles on it this winter. Last winter I had som great fun on my Iron Horse mkIII with Schwalbe Wicked will's on. Those were the absolute biggest I could fit in the MkIII rear, but the Reign X seems to be able to accommodate bigger rubber. I especially felt that the rear wheel had some trouble floating over semi-hardpacked snow.

    What I'm looking for is the largest possible, reasonably lightweight tire out there, preferably sub 900g. Fatbike light if you will Strong sidewalls and esoteric rubber compounds are less of an issue for snow riding obviously.

    I ran 2.4 Nobby Nic on mine for a while, they're 62mm and there was still loads of clearance. Changed to 2.5 Minion DHF which are 55/59 and even more clearance. I doubt you'll have much problem with any tire in the weight range you're looking at.

    sounds reassuring... wonder what the biggest lightweight tire out there is?
