Need 26x2.1 Tires With More Than 65PSI

Is there such a thing as this? I would like to have an all purpose tire (mostly road, but some light trails) in size 26x2.1 that will take a higher pressure than 65PSI.

Does this exist and does anyone have any specific suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help.

Try either Panaracer or Specialized. Good luck.

Hutchinson Mosquito Air Light 26" x 2.0 is rated to 80 PSI. It's a ripping trail tire @ just over 400 grams that hooks up very predictably. It's rubber compound is pretty soft though, I'm not sure how long it would last on paved surfaces.

No, they don't, I have a set and they're up to 65.
