At this point, I can't seem to do the mental gymnastics to install a set of tires that would add over 1/2 pound to the bike, in outside rotating mass.

I'm not unreasonable, I know that I've got extremely light tires and I'll need to go up a little in weight for durability.

Is there a decent tubeless tire for dry dirt/gravel/shale in the <440g range. Lets pretend initial price is no object but replacing tires more than a couple times a year is a no go.
