    high volume, fast rolling, primarily commuting tire?

    I'm looking for new rubber for my HT. It's primarily a pavement commuter, but I will be doing some rides on hardpack trails, and some playing around on stairs and small drops in the city.

    I understand that there will be some tradeoffs - I cannot expect that one tire will do everthing well. It should be high volume (2.3 or thereabouts), and roll somewhat easier than the Tioga Factory DH's that I have used in the past.

    Recommendations? They're going on Rhyno Lite wheels on a Specialized HT with a 100 mm travel fork. Rider weight is about 210 lbs + gear.

    Thanks
