The Schwalbe Nobby Nic TL Ready Snakeskin is an ideal tire for rough conditions -- wet or dry. It uses Schwalbe's Pacestar Triple Compound rubber to optimize the tire's performance wherever possible with regards to grip, durability, and rolling resistance. The knobby tread of the Nobby Nic provides excellent traction in all conditions. Its cornering is outstanding thanks in part to the soft rubber compound and to the U-shaped shoulder blocks. They're angled 20 degrees or so towards the outside of the tire, with siping that doesn't quite divide the block, creating the
Strengths: No punctures, seals quickly with tubeless brew.
Weaknesses: Price, traction, Soft compound.
I run this tire on the front (29 x 2.35), usually this tire breaks traction before the rear which is a Conti Mountain King II 29 x 2.2. I ride in trails with rock gardens, drops, lose terrain, hard packed terrain, mud, almost anything.
It came standard with my bike, I think I will try a different tire next time.
