The recent Tire Rack flyer/small mag I got listed a new SP8000 from the
Dunlop boys. They are a lightweight version running a aramide casing. (read
kevlar) I've had kevlar on my bike tires since the late 80's.

Lower unsprung weight. And less rotational mass to accelerate/decelerate.
Don't know cost or sizes available
