What are the top options and reviews/experience for tubeless CX tires ?
I've been curious about the X-one. What else to look at ? Thanks.

Can't really offer much in the way of recent CX racing on tubeless as I always raced tubulars, but I am enjoying nice all-conditions riding with Schwalbe G-One Speed tires, but I would add that these are mounted on Enve M60 wheels which are 100% tubeless compatible. I make that distinction because experience with the original, non-tubeless Enve Twenty9 XC wheels yielded less than stellar results despite using 3 layers of Stan's (now use DT Swiss tubeless tape), I could not get them the tires to seal reliably, and anything less than 35-psi resulted in several flats.

I also have been riding the Schwalbe G-One on gravel and some double track. They work nicely. That's a bit why I'm seeing the options for CX tubeless. In the past I raced tubulars and last year clincher Clement with a latex tube, which was pretty good.

Compass Steilacoom
a bit expensive but worth it
they come as 38 mm tires
so no UCI racing
but otherwise you'll be fine

Honestly, i was estranged on how good these tires worked.
They felt very fast and nimble, i rode several trails and some mild mtb tracks, i rode gravel and i was never disappointed.
Only thing i had wished was a wider/ fatter version for more damping.
Then came Overide, which in comparison is much more damping, but not as fast and not same grip (sadly).
To be honest, i am disappointed in the Overide.
If i was looking for something like a cx tire, i would seriously pick BM CX right away.
I really recommend you try them. I used the tubeless 34mm version. They do not blow out big on a rim 21.6mm internally.
I think they actually are 34 or even less wide on this rim (Avion)

[*]Clement's tubeless line is all 33c.
[*]Have heard anecdotes about Maxxis tubeless tires not playing well with all rims, but have no personal experience with any of them.
[*]Hutchinson and Specialized also offer tubeless options.
[*]Kenda's line is tubeless compatible and they have both 33s for the UCI-confined and 35/36 for us mere beer-leaguers who want the extra volume. I'll probably be rolling on the Kommando X 36mm this upcoming season.

Other "big" options include the WTB Riddler 37c, WTB Nano 40c, and the Ritchey Shield 35c.

I've had good luck with WTB cross tires. they have been really easy to set up tubeless.

I am really hoping to find an alternative to tubulars for next year.
Any recommendations on a tubeless rim brake wheelset that would work for cross racing?
The Mavic Pro Carbon UST look interesting with a 19mm internal width and new brake track

I'm not an expert on race tyre selection but I can say the X-One rolls very well and grips in mud.

Regarding tubeless, at 60kg what’s the lowest PSI you would run? Could I go as low as my tubs?

85kg, 1.7bar rear, 1.3 front. it's very much on the border . if course is "rooted", add half bar, or buy new rims..

Vittoria, even not tnt works fine, Hutchinson too. Same vulcanized Challenge. Conti doesn't work at all ( and good, they have nothing worth any attention for cx (33mm)).

Mamba is relatively light, fast, puncture resistant and -considering "weird" thread- grippy on hard surfaces, including ...ice. Yes, ice. Wears off really slow, so works fine as commmuting tire as well.
