    need some good WW tires for a 100km race

    Wanted to get your input on some good light tires, my setup is bontrager xr4 2.35 front and bontrager xr3 2.2 back, but they are heavy, i believe the 2.35 is like 900g, the race is going to be on dry fast terrain, very little rocks.

    Thanks,

    My riding bud just bought some specialized S-Works Renegade 1.9x29's and they are insanely light. Just under 500 grams if I remember correctly. We just rode on semi-wet trails and he still had no complaints. Our LBS has a set of take offs I plan to buy as soon as I have the extra dough!

    Ran the Raven for a while. Thin sidewalls and tread. I had rocks shred them. You also have to run super low psi in order to get traction, it is a good tire when you do this but far to fragile for a race in my opinion.

    Maxxis Ignitor front, crossmark rear. Been running this setup for a year and haven't had one puncture riding some nasty rocks. Both are light, roll fast, and hook up very well.

    Ikon is also recommended by my teammates, but I haven't used one yet.

    I have a 26" on the rear - i've read some bad reviews on them but i have no complaints and been riding it a year in all conditions. They are very light - mine came in at 404g i think.
