    Hope Slick or Semi-slick tire

    I need to some help Im looking for some slick or semi-slick tires for my lightweight commuter in size 27.5X2.00 up to max 27.5X2.20 Weight should be under 500gr per tire or just a little over. Price doesn't really matter. Anyone has some idea for such a fast rolling tire for asphalt? Thanks, Paul

    Conti Speed King II Black Chilli Compound

    Bike24 - Continental Speed King RaceSport MTB Folding Tire BlackChili 27.5x2.2 Inch
    https://r2-bike.com/continental-reif...lli-race-sport

    Its good as an asphalt tyre and also more than usable on trails (large volume - I think it is a little larger than the stated 2.2 inch - means lower PSI is possible).

    As it is only available in RaceSport spec it is hand made in Germany and you should be looking at sub500g per tyre (around 450g).

    How about the Soma Cazadero? 42 mm with a fast center section.
    Cazadero Tires (700c/650b x 42mm) | SOMA Fabrications
    Soma says 470 grams, CX Mag seemed to like them.

    They also have a couple of slicks in the same size, if you want no tread at all.

    Freedom(WTB) 1.95" Thickslick Sport

    Most of these are newish so supply may be short for the time being.
