Schwalbe Fat Albert Evo Snakeskin Folding Tyre
It is almost ten years ago that Fat Albert took mountain biking into a new era. It was the first tyre that provided both lightness and large volume. Now there is a completely new Fat Albert. Its core competences remain though: Large volume. Low weight. Strong SnakeSkin side wall.
Fat Albert Front: A new, special front version is designed for safe handling and braking grip. And with U-Blocks on the shoulders the Fat Albert Front tackles curves precisely.
One of Schwalbe’s most effective inventions for mountain bikes. SnakeSkin fabric adds only ca 40-50g per tyre. This makes it the most practical protection against sharp rocks that can easily cut the side wall of light racing tyres. SnakeSkin - in rocky terrain it is a great call!
Shoulder lugs with a special trick. U-blocks ‘lift’ themselves due to their special arrangement and spread cornering forces.
Triple Nano Compound
The optimal three-way rubber compound: Fast, grippy, heard wearing. Nano particles improve grip and rolling resistance - particularly effective on the dynamic centre compound.

Great tyre. The tyre sealed on my rim immediately without sealant with the TL ready bead. I've changed from a nobby nic on the front and I prefer the fat albert, it offers better grip on wet rock due to the trailstar compound and also rolls better than the nic.
Great tyre, have the bigger ones on my AM bike so tried the smaller on my Cross Country bike - dispatched less than 90 minutes after I ordered. Superb.
