Schwalbe Nobby Nic Review
The Nobby Nic’s updated tread pattern, with a mix of narrow and wide lugs, provides decent cornering performance. The blocks deform well over terrain, enhancing grip. However, due to its rounded shape, it’s less planted on the crown, making it better for continuous steady grip rather than aggressive cornering.
Impressively versatile, the Nobby Nic offers excellent pedal traction. The Addix Soft compound grips well on various surfaces, ensuring a confident and steady ride even in challenging terrains.
The tire performs well in braking, thanks to its well-designed tread. The blocks and sipes contribute to effective braking traction, providing control on descents and technical sections.
Known for its rapid rolling speed, the Nobby Nic lives up to its reputation. The Super Trail casing, while slightly springier than some, doesn’t compromise much on rolling speed. The Addix Soft compound ensures lively and fast-rolling performance.
Ease of Installation:
Available in both Super Ground and Super Trail casings, the Super Trail version, incorporating Snakeskin and Apex sidewall reinforcement, ensures easy installation. The tire’s rounded shape and supportive sidewalls make it manageable during setup.
The Nobby Nic comes at a competitive price, offering a lightweight option without sacrificing performance. The Super Trail casing, while adding a bit to the cost, provides additional protection for aggressive riding.
