I'm currently running Rocket Ron 2.1 tubeless in their non tubeless version and these tires are way too fragile. I weigh 120lbs and I had 4 flats with them this year so far ...

I love the grip and the weigh, but I need something a bit more tough ... is the TLR version much better? I find them quite expensive..

What do you guys think of Bontrager XR3 TLR: http://bontrager.com/model/09340" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" ??

I don't know their weight, but grip looks nice and price is good.

Any suggestions??

Thanks

I have great experience with the PaceStar version of Rocket Ron. But no matter what they're probably not good for rocks.

I went from a rocket ron to a rubena scylla tubeless supra 2.1, haven't had a problem yet.

Nice grip, 525 grams (real weight) and cheap.

maxxis Ikon 2.2 non-exo are 480g give or take on my scale

maxxis aspen 2.1 are 475g on my scale, but are quite fragile

I found the maxxis Ikon EXO are the best stuff arround, 530g but bombproof with awesome volume and threads. They also set up tubeless very easily.

My next tires will probably be the continental raceking protection

UPDATE:

I bought the bontrager xr3 tubeless ready. 508g and 498g on scale! Very good for the price I think, they feel thicker than my shwalbes and only 40g heavier.
