In a class of its own. All round favorite and for many years a serial winner of MTB tyre tests. Why? Nobby Nic is unbelievably versatile. The tread offers unbeatable control in any conditions. Thanks to its compounding and construction at the highest Evo level it is light and fast in competition. This astonishing performance makes it a true ‘Allgrounder’.

Ottima tenuta sia sul fango che neve. Purtroppo un po' duretta con la camera d'aria

Rated 3 out of 5 by davesb66 Good grip straight out the box, Doesn't last too well
Been running a 2.25 on my rear wheel for about 400km now replacing a 2.4 Fat Albert because I wanted something faster rolling. Straight out the box the quality was great, definitely a fast rolling tyre and grips well on hard pack trails. Found the cornering grip on steeper, natural trails and in muddier conditions to be not that great though.
The side grip on them has started to wear ridiculously quickly now and on anything other than super hardpack trail centre type trails is practically non existant now.
Would say the Nobby Nics are a real good tyre for more XC type riding or racing but for more aggressive enduro / all mountain riding its a bit too weak.
Schwalbe tyres in general I have found to be absolutely fantastic overall, this was just the wrong choice of tyre for my style of riding.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Fragglerock Impossible to seal tubeless
Straight swap with some worn out nobble nics which were run tubeless on mavic crossmax slr wheel set.
Could not get the bead to sit into the rim of the tyre. Previous nics would seal up and inflate no problem. This pair has been an absolute PITA. Given up after 1:30hrs and had to fit tubes. Also seem slightly narrower than previous nics.
Never had problems with these tyres side walls. Just punctures from thorns.
Light weight and accelerate well.
Great traction on welsh trails (rock ect.)great climbing tyre. Grips well in the mud too
Inspires confidence. At £20 a bargain.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ilikeriding Great all rounder but let down by the weak sidewalls
Used this tyre on my hardtail XC bike. In terms of grip and rolling resistance, this is one of the better all rounder tyres I have tried, but the sidewalls are rubbish. Running one tubeless, the sidewall split after about 200 miles. I then tried running one with tubes and I have lost count how many pinch punctures I have received. I am now trying the snakeskin version to see if it is any better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Good Allrounder
If you are looking for a good all rounder this is it. It rolls well, doesnt slip and it handles almost anything you throw at it. It lacks a bit all mountain abilities, but all in all a good tyre. I have used these both on front and back in 2.25" and I have been very pleased with it so far.

Como he dicho es una maldita porqueria esta cubierta y todas las de Schwalbe que he podido probar. No agarra absolutamente nada en terreno suelto aunque algo mas en terreno mojado y compacto. alto desgaste y precio alto. nada recomendable. Cualquier otra marca de cubiertas es mucho mejor
