I saw a set of non-eXception Ignitors at AJ's this weekend. The tread seems decent. Not to aggressive or mild. My 2.10 WIRE bead Nevegal and 2.10 WIRE bead Blue groove are heavy... i looked for them on on Kenda's site, doesn't look like they make those tires anymore. If they do it's for a cheap OEM tire and they only sell to the Manufactures. So without weighing my tires, I have no idea exactly what they weigh, or their advertised weight is.
