How cumbersome do your tires actually feel? Don't focus solely on the rolling resistance of your tires unless you are super fit and in a super hurry. I say stick to a good all-round off road tire...In the worst case scenario, you may work a little harder (your body will reward you for this eventually), and you will always be ready for any off-road conditions.
Tires with a kevlar bead are lighter (and therefore faster), so get a good all-round tire with a kev. bead and you will be faster AND trail ready...that way everybody's happy
