Designed to be your go to tire for any situation, the Scwalbe Nobby Nic is an all-around performer with a penchant for big rocks and loose gravel. Since 2011, Schwalbe has made all their Evolution folding tires "tubeless ready" and can be used with sealant without voiding the warranty. The Nobby Nic Evo TR also gets a new tread compound and the option of full UST compatibility. The new compound is called PaceStar. It's a triple rubber compound that uses a firm base layer, then a medium tacky compound over the center blocks and a medium-soft tacky compound over the shoulder knobs. When combined with the Nobby Nic Evo tire's medium height, siped, square knobs and U-Block shoulder lugs, the result is tenacious grip and speedy rolling. The spacing of the knobs makes the Nobby Nic extremely versatile, capable of performing well on almost any surface including mud.
Use the Evo TR model if rocks aren't and never will be an issue. The TR SS uses Schwalbe's Snakeskin sidewall protection, making it a good option for most any trail. If you ride in a heavily rocky areas, we recommend getting a UST version since it has more rubber on the casing (as reflected in the weight) and will hold up better to repeated abuse.

I'm getting frustrated looking for a sub 750gram UST tire that will roll fast and grip well. Have mavic cross max SL's, unmounted stan's rim stips and some stan's sealant. Anyone rum the Nobby Nic 2.4 EVO casing on UST rims? Any issues?Read More »
