Drawing a dedicated following of trail enthusiasts, the Schwalbe Nobby Nic SnakeSkin TL Ready 27.5 Tire is ideally suited for 27.5-inch trail bikes with its tubeless-ready design, all-terrain tread pattern, and reinforced Snakeskin sidewalls. Its ride-anywhere, rip-anything personality comes courtesy of its Pacestar Triple Compound rubber, which is slightly softer along the edges for tackier grip, with a harder center compound for fast-rolling performance.

Its knobby tread pattern bites tenaciously when you're laying into the trail at high speeds, thanks to its U-shaped blocks along the edging surface where cornering takes placed. Widely spaced center knobs provide ample grip in damp conditions, as well as on soft, tackier trails. An upgrade over the standard version, the tire's Snakeskin casing embeds a puncture-resistant layer into the sidewall for beefed-up protection against sharp rocks, roots, and tire-shredding trail surfaces. Plus, they're tubeless-ready with the use of sealant, allowing you to ride with a lower pressure for better shock absorption and higher levels of overall grip.

Great tire!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love the weight. Love the puncture resistance. Love the grip.
Don't love the price.
I keep buying them, however.

Premium, Predictable Rubber

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used this tire exclusively for years. In fact, I even bought extras like they were going out of style. A new bike pushed me towards some other tires, which I had a love-hate relationship with. After some time off the Nobby Nics, I got some miles on an unfamiliar demo bike that had them mounted up. The bike felt foreign, but the handling did not and I remembered exactly why I absolutely love(d) these tires for years.

The Nobby Nic offers nearly everything you could want in a tire; Extremely lightweight, Tubeless ready, Supersonic speed, Superb grip, Predictability, Justifiable durability.

Aside from weight which I will touch on later, the most dramatic differences I noticed with this tire was how predictable and secure the grip was while they just seemed to keep rolling down the trail effortlessly. Rear break away was predictable and kept confidence elevated when pushing the limits on your favorite trail.

Tread wear seems to be a hot topic between internet forums with these tires, but I had great treadwear and easily got over 750 miles with both the front/rear on my sets. Side knobs tended to degrade from below the top of the knob, but still griped well and I did not notice any decrease in performance. Compared to my experience with Conti X-King Protection tires, these tires outlasted several of those tires. Schwalbe's Snakeskin sidewall protection is the only way to go in my opinion for extra insurance without much of a weight penalty. Only issues that came up were a puncture here or two in the tread, but based on the performance and light weight I think it was reasonable.

Grippy lightweight.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When used on the back the side knovs dont provide enough support when cornering ad you can find yourself 'falling off' the tyre making for very sketchy handling. Good as a front tyre only if you want a bit gore braking and directional grip in xc situations. Ardent is better as an xc allrounder and hans dampf better for anything fairly demanding.

Solid Performer

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

While always lightweight with strong tread patterns, the achilles heel of Schwalbe tires has long been the sidewall. The snakeskin sidewall on this tire has proven itself durable, yet preserving a lightweight package. I'd strongly recommend as a front tire, but typically prefer a more rounded, less chunky profile for our buff Park City trail system.
