I need a new front tire for a new tubeless wheel build:

Maxic 819 Disc UST Rim (tubeless)
Stainless Steel Spokes
Hope Pro II 20mm hub
alloy nipples
total weight: <900g
Riding Terrain: 4 miles daily commute to and from work. All other terrain is aggressive single track with good jumps, brief down-hill sections, in a east, texas forrest type terrain. Has anyone else found a good kevlar based UST tire that they think would also work well for my purpose?

I like Continental tires. I use a Verticle Pro for my front wheel
and I have a Vapor on the back. Low rolling resistance, relatively
light weight, and predictability characterize them. These tires have
been nearly indestructible through all of the sloppy riding I have
subjected them to.

Even the 60A Maxxis (High Roller or Ignitors) wear rapidly on tarmac.

Both are superb. There is a michelin Extrem all-mountain 2.2 ( the grey one) which rollls well and lasts. Grip isn't as good as a High Roller and they are a bit more expensive but that would be my suggestion.

If wear isn't that big a deal, go for Maxxis, High Rollers front and rear or substitute an Ignitor or Larsen on the back for rolling efficiency
