The Nobby Nic is the MTB tire with the greatest range of applications by Schwalbe. Touring and All Mountain riders love them. Seen in fast cross-country racing, as well as in technically demanding Enduro competition. Nobby Nic enters the third generation. The new SnakeSkin sidewall is standard and makes it immune to cuts and blows, while Tubeless conversion is as easy and safe as never before. Nobby Nic is a mountain biker's best friend.
Power Pack Center Blocks: Optimized center stud arrangement for improved traction, improved braking grip and predictable cornering.
Strong Outerblocks: Significantly bigger and well positioned outerblocks improve the control on a demanding trail.
V-Grooves: V-shaped grooves add additional braking and grip edges without increasing block squirm.
LiteSkin Tires have light, thin sidewalls. Advantages: Weight saving and reduced rolling resistance. The SnakeSkin version is increased with an additional lightweight and flexible fabric lining on the sidewall, so it's less damageable by side injury. Double Defense (DD) version comes in addition to SnakeSkin also with an High Density Vectran Guard for double protection.
PaceStar-Triple-Compound is optimized for MTB Race, All Mountain and Tour. Super-fast compound with a combination of low rolling resistance and durability. The tire shoulders were made appreciably softer to improve handling on rough terrain.
TrailStar-Triple-Compound is optimized for Enduro and Freeride. Triple Nano compound was unsuitable performance-wise and the rolling resistance of Gooey Gluey was too high. TrailStar has substantially more grip, better damping and handling control. Nevertheless, the compound is not overly heavy, making it suitable for climbing too.
Schwalbe Nobby Nic SnakeSkin and Double Defense folding tires are featuring TL-Easy technology. The new standard for all Evo MTB tires. The new monofilament sidewall fabric surpasses the previous SnakeSkin fabric in three ways: Even greater cut resistance, higher penetration strength and above all: it makes Tubeless conversion extremely easy and safe!
