Try the Geax Goma. Designed by the same guy that designed several legendary Maxxis treads, endorsed by Cam Zink who’s already put them to very good use so far. It’s very similar to a Maxxis Minion DHF in pattern, with slightly shallower knobs and a 50a compound. Weights are very reasonable (like 750g for the 29×2.25″ version I’m running), they seal tubeless with no effort, they roll way faster than their direct Maxxis rivals.
Another fan of the Butcher control here, though I’m a lightweight, some folks have trouble with the sidewalls but I never have even while others are flatting dualplies. They are not riderproof. If there was a stickier version it’d be perfect (other’n the dh anyway!)
Bear in mind “2.35” is pretty meaningless, a Butcher 2.3 is the size of most Maxxis 2.5s.
