Schwalbe Nobby Nic Snakeskin Folding 27.5 X 3.0 Plus - Folding Tyre 2016

The Nobby Nic is our most versatile tyre and Schwalbes most popular because it offers an optimum in grip and performance. With Nobby Nic, we adapted the profile dimension to the larger tyre width, which means that the studs have also increased in size and grip level. 

The Simple effect of the bigger 3” tyre volume allows the rider to run significant lower air pressure improving grip, comfort and suspension. The allows the Nobby Nic PLUS to roll better over rough trails.

General information about our shipping
Lightning fast if run at both ends - but front does get real sketchy when pushed hard. Best on the back.
The Schwalbe Nobby Nic is a great tire to replace what is stock on a 2017 Trek Fuel EX Plus. After switching out the front, it made a world of difference when gripping the trail. Because I was going too fast around a blind curve and the trail had washed-out since the last time I rode it, the tire saved me on that section that you wouldnt want to fall because there are rattlesnakes in the area. I doubt the old stock tires would have kept me on my bike. Also, Merlin shipped the package out to California relatively fast. Hope this information helps your purchasing decision.
I bought these tires for the rocky terrain, hard pack that I ride in northern MN. The Nobby Nic snakeskin holds up excellent in the sharp rocks. These are great handling, cornering tires.. M.S. northern M.N.
Large volume and nice rounded profile. Grip is superb over conventional 2.3 / 2.4 tyres when run at 15-20psi. They are a little draggy on road and very hardpack but roll faster on most other surfaces. I've only used on rock, root and harpack in dry and 'splashy wet' conditions where the tyre has performed brilliantly but I suspect it won't do very well in slop and sticky mud. Carcass roll is acceptable on 38mm rims but a bit borderline at 15psi...
Super grippy and awesome. Way better of a front tire than the rocket ron I had.
