Maxxis Ikon perhaps? They feel very fast on my 26 inch hardtail aand aren't ridiciously bad when it gets muddy or snowy.

I am using Continental RaceKing 2.2 racesport. Very fast, great volume, unbelievable grip. It has been very durable for me but I am only 70kg. If you want a more durable version you can go for the Protection variant which has tougher sidewall. Just make sure you go for tyre with Black chilli rubber compound, as this is the one that grips so well.

I have the Black Chilli 2.2 Race Kings. I love them. They roll fast and the thread is durable. The only problem is weak sidewalls so be careful if you ding a rock.

You know you gotta provide info about your terrain, preferably with pics of actual summer conditions. Else people are eventually gonna suggest everything: Racing Ralphs, Rocket Rons, Furious Freds, Crossmarks, Aspens, Ikons, XKings, RaceKings, Nanoraptors, Nanos, WildRac'r, Hutchison tires, etc... that would only make you even more indecisive. Help us help you narrow things down. I know my open desert climate extremely hard hardpack with kitty litter dusting and granite would call for something different than something that was optimized for terrain that was under a forest canopy, slightly moist, and loose and loamy, like some Specialized tires would be better suited for.
