All Mountain Each - All Mountain tyre features: Triple Nano Compound and U-Blocks, while Double Defense versions incorporate HD Ceramic Guard puncture protection.
Nobby Nic - Devilish grip. Nobby Nic has truly great grip, cornering speed and defies wash-out, which is why so many riders love it! And Pros are surprised how it has been possible to have so much grip with such low rolling resistance. The secret 3+s: Hi-tech manufacture + an Evo carcass + Triple Nano Compound + U-Blocks.
High Density – High Density guard is a unique puncture protection technology only available from Schwalbe. It has been jointly developed in co-operation with American firm Warwick Mills. Warwick is a specialised maker of high density fabrics and holds 14 internal patents for its weaving technology. No other bicycle tire protection belt is a density woven and this technology makes it possible to make a tyre that is both light in weight and with an extraordinary high level of puncture resistance.
Ceramic. Additional ceramic coating. Small pieces of glass that remain embedded in the tire and slowly cut their way through a protection belt are now stopped by the tough, ceramic particles that blunt the edges of the glass preventing its destructive migration.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rihel Good but not perfect
I'm a big fan of the Hans Damf 2.35 and have one on the front but wanted something with less drag on the back, I had a maxxi ardent snake skin on the back but I run tubless and got sick or repairing it. I wanted somethiing tougher and for the last 3-4 months of hard riding, big hits and also mistakes its still not let me down. The ardent feels faster and grips I feel grips better when climbing on slipery rocks (something previous nobbly nics I've felt have also done). When it gets a bit loose and especially in the wet going down the NN is a diffrent tire and gives you confidence, it might start to slip when you get low but always manages to grip and pull you out the. Overall really good tire which I'd recommend but its not perfect, if I didn't do so many miles I'd just go for a Hans Damf front a back

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous From Greek off road trails
Very good Tyre for both off road use and in the city!
A little slippery when it comes to wet road, but extremely good grip at dirt.
After a big steep trail (70% dirt - 30% gravel)the center pads of the tyre were cut along an angle of 45 degrees due to heavy and sudden braking on gravel!
Sum: Very pleased with this tyre!
