OK, I know theres many of them...
I like how nevegals hook up the trails (compound or tread maybe?) but my 2.1 wire are very heavy. Im looking same preformance in every conditions but lighter and less rolling resistance. Any advice?

As I told you conditions here are mud, hardpack, rocks, gravel....all conditions
thanks.:thumbsup:

Ever try the kevlar bead....

Nevegal? Depends on what you consider heavy, but the Kevlar version in 2.1 tips the scales at around 630g +or- 5g. Which isn't bad for a full 2.1 high volume tire. Another might be Continental Vertical Pro 2.3, another 630g tire, though more like a 2.2 than a 2.3. But around the same size as the 2.1 Nevy for volume. Not as good in mud (reasonable though), but works well in rocks and roots.

Good Dirt

Yeah, for a tire that worksin "all" conditions 600-650g is pretty good, IMO.
Some people like the Schwalbe Nobby Nic, for decent grip and bit less weight.

Also, Hutch Spider and Nokian NBX are both pretty good in most conditions and clearing mud too, but both are 600g+.

The Panaracer Rampage 2.35 is very similar in tread pattern to the Nev but is lighter, and rolls better. It's also about the same size as the Nev 2.1.

I'm not sure how it is in mud but it doesn't like snow. 2.25 Mibro is another good option though not quite as big.
