Nic bulks up.

Nobby Nic has been around long enough that he has a pretty confident swagger when he shows up at the trailhead for a ride, but that doesn't make him any less popular. He's back again to show us all he's not afraid to embrace new trends, now available in two 27.5 Plus sizes so he can take on rowdier rides with the same type of poise we've all come to expect from him.

Nic hangs onto his famously grippy tread pattern, which remains equal parts fast-rolling and earth-grabbing, so he's at home blasting through rough stuff or along hard-packed trails. Not unlike the more admired dirt denizens of our local scene, Nic moves between enduro rides, all-mountain jaunts, and XC races with confidence, and his SnakeSkin sidewall dutifully defends against punctures as you careen over bumps, testing Nic's limits. Slightly softer compared to PaceStar, Nic's TrailStar triple compound rubber allows him to navigate just about any surface with ease. Cconverting Nic to tubeless is as simple as ever, and according to Schwalbe, he's one of the easiest tires to set up tubeless. It even gave Nic the middle name TL Easy just to show how much they believe it.

Grip like velcro, durability issues

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These things grip, and grip well. Really unbelievable the traction you can get. I had them set up on my bike and ripped a sidewall through a moderate rock garden I had ridden a dozen times on a standard tired bike with no issues. Sidewalls need to be a bit beefier.

So Far So Good!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm only about 5 rides on these Plus sized tires, and the jury is still out. The cornering and climbing grip is unbelievable. But it is definitely more rubber to pedal up a hill, and they react strangely in slow moving rock gardens. Definitely not great for every type of riding, but I am enjoying them so far

Good level of Fatty

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

For a semi fat bike you don't really need a nobby tire because there is already plenty of added grip with the extra width. But why not just go big? You want to be as grippy as possible right? big nobbs. big tires. big fun.

Unanswered Question

Is there a recommended minimum internal wheel width to run these?


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These semi fatty roll through almost anything. I fell like a little kid again rolling with these bad boys.

Nobby nic plus rock

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Replaced 2.8 trailblazers as they sucked in wet conditions with nobby nic 2.8s couldn't be happier. Grip on everything, light and easy tubeless setup.
