Big knobby gravel tyres

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

I've recently started going a bit further off the beaten track than perhaps I should do for my 44mm slicks to cope with. Does anyone have any recommendations for similarly wide tyres with some tread on. All I've come up with so far are the WTB Riddlers which are currently unavailable in the UK.

I’m currently running Continental Cyclocross Speeds on Fulcrum Racing Quattro Carbons, Not big and knobbly but fast on tarmac and there no slouch on the gravel.

I'm really looking for something at around 45mm and tubeless. Definitely don't want any narrower than what I've got atm. If onto they did a 45mm gravelking sk

Are you talking 700c tires or 650b?

I also plan to run slicks for dry gravel, and knobs for wet/loose gravel and mud.

I ran Clement (Donnelly) Xplor MSO 700 x 40 on my last bike, but now I have more clearance, and I want something with better mud shedding ability. I'm looking at WTB Resolute 700 x 42 which get great reviews and should measure about 45mm wide on a 22 inner wheel. They get great reviews as an all rounder, better than the 700 x 45 Riddlers.
