    Fast rolling, light rear tire

    I currently run Evo HansDampf both front and rear (2.35) on a T2.
    The bike is used for trail riding no shuttle runs,drops and kickers up to 6 ft. 170lb rider.
    And though its OK, I can sure use a better rolling tire UST or tubless ready tire.

    Any recomendation?

    Conti Rubber Queen/Trail King 2.2 Black Chilli UST. Beefy, fast rolling, approx. 50 gr. lighter than the HansDampf EVO. Good as rear tire.

    the conti are good andfast rooling, but...
    Last week my riding buddy tore one after about 1/2 mile into a 20 mile desert ride 1 inch wide.
    We mended it with a driving license.
    It's not that it's sidewall is thin as it is delicate to sharp edges.

    Throw a Nobby Nic in the rear and keep the Hans Dampf in the front. The Nic is the best compromise I have found for rolling resistance and traction. I tried a racing ralph and it just gives up too much in climbing traction, braking and cornering.
