    Best Tubeless Everyday XC 29er Tire Combo (2.1 or greater)?

    I am looking for the best all around tubeless ready combo to run for everyday riding. I have done the whole weight weenie thing, and I will pay a price for flat protection, decent sidewalls, tight bead, traction and real width to run Colorado single-track. That being said, I would put a limit of 700 grams on the tires. Thoughts.

    Are these going on UST rims, or Stan's (type) rims? If I could have only 1 set of XC tires, I'd go with the 29x2.25 Ardent front (Exo-Protection sidewall protection isn't needed for me on the front) and the 29x2.2 Ikon Exo rear. Another good combo (but with UST-spec beads) is the Nobby Nic 29x2.25 front, Racing Ralph 29x2.25 rear.

    I really rate the captian control 2.2 front and maxxis ignitor 2.0 rear run backwards.

    My vote for the Captains, 2 yrs, 2 punctures that Stan's took care of. Amazing tires.
