Schwalbe Nobby Nic MTB tiresSchwalbe has completely redesigned the tread pattern of the Nobby Nic tire for 2015.

The Schwalbe Nobby Nic still has the lightweight, 67-thread-per-inch, high-volume casing which gave the original Nic its fast and supple rolling qualities. New improvements include a tougher and reinforced SnakeSkin sidewall, a sturdier and wider tread pattern, and a more substantial edging tread with Schwalbe's addition of a staggered row of transition blocks for more stability entering or exiting corners.

All 2015 Schwalbe MTB tires will be "Tubeless Easy" - which means they need some sort of sealant, but are designed to be easily mounted and run tubeless. This tire has a wide range of applications, from fast cross country to technical enduro riding and everything in between.

Currently in stock:

  • Nobby Nic 29x2.25 and 29x2.35 - $92
  • Nobby Nic 27.5x2.25 - $92
