Fast Rolling 27.5 tire?

I'm looking for a fast roling 27.5x2" tire that I can ride on the road shortly to get to some more tame singletrack. It has some climbs and twisty downhill, but not really anything loose or much risk of breaking traction. I never ride when it's wet/muddy. The Continental Double Fighter lll looks like it would work well, but it only comes in a heavy, wire bead version. Any other suggestions?

WTB Byway, maybe? I run a set on easy singletrack sometimes. They work ok so long as I don't corner hard. I love them on gravel.
