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.
Hello again

I think you're asking for the mythical "perfect" gravel tire. You have to give up something somewhere. Light, big, durable, pick two.

But for your listed desires I think the Rambler in the toughest casing (Silkshield?) at 415g is your best bet. Followed by GK SK 38mm.

edit: Or maybe it's the 120TPI EXO Rambler that's the tougher tire. Whichever it is pick that one.
