    29er high volume tubeless ready tire?

    Can someone who has done the research point me to a wide (2.2-2.3) 29er tire for hardpack conditions that is tubeless ready (presumably lighter than a UST tire).

    thank you

    Chris

    I've had great luck running Conti Race Kings in 2.2 tubeless on the rear even thought not spec'd as tubeless.

    Or the new fast trak control - 605g in 29x2.2. Captain is about 730.

    The S-Works Captain is 665g

    There is always the Stan's Raven 29" x 2.2"...I had a pair and for hard packed trails they hook up pretty good except under braking. 550g

    Yep....Sworks Captain 2.2....amazing tire - I run it at 19psi on Haven 21mm rims, and it takes all the roots and rocks and soaks them up! huge corning speed as a bonus.

    Running IKON on the rear...21.5psi.

    cheers

    I like the Schwalbe Racing Ralph and the Rocket Ron. They are both available in 29x2.25. They are light, roll fast, and tubeless ready. They are easy to install on my DT Swiss tubeless ready rims. They mount by hand, and the beads seat with a floor pump (no soap/compressor/tricks).

    I use the Rocket Ron on the front, and the Racing Ralph rear.

    thanks for the great input. I went with the Spec. 2.2 fast track mostly due to the guarantee offered at the specialized "concept store": 90 days full refund used or not, no questions asked. i.e. if I have any problems with tubeless, rim compatibility etc., I can return them.
