Tyres similar to OnOne smorgasbord

Got a big split in the tubeless smorgasbord and went to the OnOne website to find no stock in 650b tyres.

Any recommendations for something similar - i.e. decent value, decent all-round summer performance for broadly XC style riding locally and in Delamere, plus a few days around Llandegla or Cannock every few months.

I'm guessing something like an Ardent would make a reasonable all-round alternative?

    Can't immediately think of a tyre with a similar tread pattern to the Smorgasbord, but they are made in the Maxxis factory so maybe an Ardent or High Roller would be closest in 'spirit' to the On-One tyre.

    Personally I didn't get on with the Smorgasbord (or the Chunky Monkey for that matter). When I'm not riding my 26+ bike my go to all-round conventional tyres are a Specialized Butcher / Slaughter combination - good for all but the stickiest mud (the edge knobbles of the semi-slick Slaughter are surprisingly good in wet, sloppy mud). Go for the Grid sidewalls if you're worried about cutting tyres.

    Not worried about cuts, just looking for something that fits the bill as a similar all round performer. I don't buy tyres regularly enough to be over the range and what is good or not.

    Similar or not, at £12.99 for a Specialized Ground Control 2Bliss 650b 2.1 I've got a couple of those on the way. If nothing else, value for money should be OK!
