Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Better than I expected I got these on a cube stereo, and read reviews on the tyres, and was to put it mildly, horrified at what I read, having ridden on them now for over a year in ALL conditions I can safely say the people who slate these tyres are either far too critical or absolutely astounding riders, as I cannot fault them they have never slipped out on me , handled all manner of terrain even my most taxing environmant urban "downhill" lol alleyway and steep flights of concrete steps complete with broken glass and discarded syringes and no flats, cuts or any failures they are easily as good as Maxxis high rollers,,,,in my personal experience 13 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Volume and Grip Excellent tire for the loose DG soil here at Lake Tahoe. Nice and floaty, great grip in every direction, rolls fast. Plain predictable tire. This is honestly the best all arounder I have ridden since I started in 1995, this is my new benchmark. I ride XC trail and enduro type rides, so for XC racers look elsewhere for a review. Running 20 to 25 psi seems perfect. Certainly too light to charge DH but that is not what I bought it for. 04 May 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Grippier than Nobby Nic, less grip than Big Betty Sits in between the Nobby Nic and Big Betty. Good compromise between grip and weight. Durable and good volume. 27 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Schwalbe Fat Albert Evo Rear 26" Tyre - S-Skin I have been riding trail centers and natural trail up in the lakes and the tire have not let me down. It grips well in the wet and on rocks 13 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb tyre with plenty grip and nice feel. Ive been running the 2.4 front and rear Fat Alberts on my Yeti SB66 for about 900km now, super impressed with them, really reliable grip on the front, the rear will slide if you really push it into the corners but once the knobs on the side grip you can rely on it to hold through almost anything regardless of dry or wet trail conditions and shed mud very quickly. Swapped from continentals to the Schwalbes and found the grip to be considerably better. The continentals would grip straight away but were more liable to washing out unpredictably as you really pushed them whereas the Schwalbes tend to slide a little at first but you can rely on them to be consistant grip throughout, flat, off camber, loose and rooty corners alike. The quality is exceptional in muddy/loamy conditions and grip really well over roots and off camber and definitely inspires more confidence in your cornering grip. On the front tyre the softer compound is now starting to wear a little after 800 or so km of hard riding which is exceptional, I had a tear in my original rear sidewall on a rootier section but to be fair, think this would have happened to almost any tyre in that instance with the exception of a full on downhill option. I found the rolling resistance of the 2.4 rear tyre a little on the sluggish side on harder packed tracks and trail centre type trails, something you would expect. Subsequently swapped for a race star compound in the 2.25 Nobby Nic on the rear for the winter trail centre riding and runs exceptionally well albeit with slightly less grip in the corners. I would say if you are running a 140+ trail bike go for the 2.4 at the front regardless and would recommend the 2.25 for harder pack and trail centre riding for less rolling resistance and the 2.4 rear if you ride more natural trails, you won't be disappointed! 31 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I put a 2.4 fat albert rear on my all-mountain bike and i very like is grip and traction. Best tire i ride. 05 July 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant This Tyre on the rear is amazing, plenty of grip, plenty of go, stable but fun!!! match it will a Maxxis detonator on the front and your in a whole new world of grip..!! 29 April 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not Bad Fast and hard wearing alright but grip wise they're just average. I ride on loose over hard and rocky gardens and my front wheel was often all over the place. Replaced them with a pair of Nobby Nic S Skins. 03 July 2010

Is the Fat Albert Rear, Tubeless Ready?

Is the Fat Albert Rear, Tubeless Ready?
The Schwalbe website (2014) says it is, but your information does not indicate whether it is or is not.
Also, I have a 2013 version, is it Tubeless Ready?

Answer: 
Yes, all the Schwlabe MTB tires produced since 2011 have been running their TubelessReady carcass (other than the UST Tubeless specific versions of course).
