    Trigger carbon 1, need tyre recommendation

    So far weights 24.1 pounds,
    Changed the rear axle to a titanium, rear cog to XTR,was going to change the tires but found out the racing ralphs are very light 470 grams, but I dont like the performance on agressive cornering, I want same weight but etter perf tyres.
    Options?

    Will put a masterpiece seat post too any other tips to get lighter?

    Love the Thompson, but you can do lighter....aggressive cornering means more knobs and more weight.

    Dude. It's a 130mm travel 29er.

    Despite being an XC racer myself, I have to say this: Racing Ralphs have no business being on that bike. It's a "trail"/AM bike. Man up. Nobby Nics or Hans Dampfs.

    Its a 26 , rode it today and climbs much better than my RZ 140 carbon 1 and weights half a pound more.
    Downhill its the best bike I have owned, brakes awesome too.

    The Ralphs are very fast though.
    I like the Nics , will probably get them.

    Rons are the bomb dot com.

    or Nics if you need something heavier, stouter, grippier and slower.
