    Advice for a fast and grippy combo for trail/enduro

    I have a relatively light (sub 12,8Kg) 160/165mm enduro bike used for long trail/enduro rides on all kind of terrains involving a lot of transfers on fire roads or asphalt.

    The wheels are XA Elites so the internal width is a bit narrow for modern standards at 25mm. I'm running a 2,40" XR4 on the front and 2,35" Rock Razor on the back.

    What I'm looking for:
    -good combination of rolling resistance, weight and grip.
    -a more aggressive *side* knob profile on the front (XR4 is a bit too round). I know the DHF is the gold standard but I'm still curious if there are interesting alternatives;
    -a more versatile rear tire because semi slick is superfast but border line unusable on softer/wet terrains, and the center knobs are half as tall than normal tires;
    -ideally between 850 and 950 grams.

    I like the Aggressor, both the 2,50 for the front and 2,30 for the rear, but I'd prefer something a little wider at the back.

    I had similar bike And wheels and ran a DHF 2.5 (non-WT) and a 2.4 Dissector rear. Worked really well and a nice balance of climbing and descending capabilities.
