I know folks that use both of those Stans tires.  No complaints with the exception of whichever one of those has the small or nonexistant side knobs gets loose when used on the front.

The WTB Nano is a decent tire, but listed at 560g.
Just rode them for the first time last night and they have good grip. Very predictable sliding at edge of traction. They do fling up a lot of sand.

The Geax Barro Race is only 450g. Never rode one.

Its too bad Hutchinson doesnt make the Python Air Light in a 29". Their 29" Python is 650g. I run the Python Tubeless Light on my 26" and its a very fast lightweight tire.
