I have a set of Specialized X-Roll Dual's (which I love) for my XC bike, and I need a pair of Freeride tires.

Specialized makes amazing tires, so I'd figure I'd ask around here for the best freeride tire Specialized makes.

My bike can fit a 2.7 in the rear and 2.5 up front.

Roller Pros aren't bad, but unless you get super deals from Specialized, for just a bit more money, why not get:
front - Kenda Blue Groove 2.5
rear - Kenda Nevegal 2.5
The folding versions are ~850g, are a real 2.5" wide, and get awesome grip. If you expect mostly loose conditions run a Nevegal on the front too.

Specialized Enduros wouldn't be a bad choice either, but they're only 2.3 AFAIK.

specialized enduro pros are a bit soft and roll REALLY slow. if you are shuttling they are fine but if you need to pedal up i suggest a better rolling tire.

i run Kenda BG 2.35" stick-e front and Nevegal 2.35" DTC or Cortez 2.4" DTC. i just destroyed my Nevegal rear on wednesday so i put the cortez back on and they are good, just a bit faster rolling and a little less traction
