Well I'm newish so I wasn't sure where to put this so if its in the wrong spot sorry!
But anyways, after much decision making I decided to purchase a kenda nevegal 2.35 dtc folding bead. It's mounted on the rear with a specialized clutch 2.3 on the front of a trek fuel ex 5.
Sizing: it is smaller than the 2.3 clutch and a little bit larger than the Hutchinson toro I had on before it.
First impressions: took it for a first ride yesterday. It was a lot of uphill, some techy slow sloping downhill and some technical uphill climbs with a flat race to the finish at the end of the ride. Climbing was incredible. I didn't slip once on places where I used to with my toro and the 2.1 nev on my last bike. Even when it got rutty and rocky with out of the saddle climbing there was no slip whatsoever. On the downhill I had so much more confidence on the corners. Where I usually have to use the brakes I just rode through and railed them. Outstanding cornering. On the flats yes there was more rolling resistance but if you are like me it won't bother you. It's not too bad and it is well worth the cornering and traction ability.
I will be doing another ride tomorrow and will post about how it performs there as well because there is sand and water/mud to test.
Overall, one great tire for SoCal conditions.
