    All mountain rear tire UST

    Can you recomended me one tire?
    I have giant reign for my all mountain track. I tested:

    Continental Vertical 2.3 UST. It is not too big but it is good tire. They don't make UST now.

    Hutchinson Barraduca 2.3 UST (Marathon Model). Low rolling resintance, and good for rear. But I craked it. They said me it is too bad.

    Now, I am using Swalcbe Fat Albert 2.35. It is too good tire, but it is too big and it has hight rolling resitance for rear tire
    I was thinking in:
    Maxxis Ignitor 2.3 Tubeless
    Maxxis HR 2.3 2ply (for doing tubeless)

    Some idea more?
    Ole, Ole y Oleeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

    The ignitor will roll faster, if that is your primary objective then that's the one for you. It is also a tad lighter, which also helps keep things rolling.

    I really like the HR 2.35 on my local trails and I find it fast enough, loads better than something like a nevegal. It can corner a lot harder than the ignitor. The 2-ply will work well for tubeless, but it will come in over 200g heavier than the standard LUST HR 2.35. Also if you want the 2-ply in 60A rubber you will need to order from overseas (CRC has them). IME the 2-ply has minimal advantage unless you are using it strictly for gravity, are a heavy guy, or are just plain abusive on tires. Otherwise stick with the LUST version.

    I think that tire it is too big and soft for rear wheel.

    I'm using an ADvantage 2.25 for my AM on the rear. I'm using the normal version on Flows but they do a LUST version too. You could go with a 2.4 as well, I find 2.25 is sufficient.

    I was surprised by the versatility of this tire, it really deals with everything I throw at it just fine... apart from very deep mud, but that's always a special case.

    Edit : Argh the UST version is 2.1 only...
