    Fast Rolling High Volume Tires

    Looking for a new option in high volume wide tires for my Rocky Mountain Element and Vertex, prefer something reasonably light and fast rolling.

    Currently running Conti Race King Supersonic 2.2 - Great Rubber, but would go even higher volume if I could find the right tire.

    Any suggestions?

    I was just coming here to check these Kenda K-Rad tires out. They are high volume from what I read and roll fast. The local instructor for my MTB trail uses them. Only down side I can see for me where I ride(Florida) is the weight.

    For the front:

    MAXXIS Ardent 2.4 EXO

    For the back:

    I agree w/ gvs_nz, the Conti X King is great in the back.

    ( The Protection version for tubeless )
