The Schwalbe Nobby Nic is the ideal all-purpose tire and has been a long-time favorite among trail riders with a need for speed. Perfect for aggressive XC courses but also right at home on an Enduro course, the Schwalbe Nobby Nic features a widely-spaced tall knob pattern to provide plenty of grip while maintaining relatively low rolling resistance. Built around the lightweight and flexible Racing Ralph casing, the Schwalbe Nobby Nic features a more aggressive tread pattern for better traction on fast and loose terrain.With the new Addix Speed compound, Schwalbe's Nobby Nic Tires deliver unprecedented performance in multiple areas.

Schwalbe ADDIX Overview
The compound for XC race specialists. It catapults Schwalbe XC tires into a new performance dimension.
The universal compound. It definitely has the widest range of use. Perfect for XC, AM and Trail: for the majority of EVO tires there's a version with ADDIX Speedgrip! It replaces the previous PaceStar compound where a significant, though not the only difference, during extensive use is more mileage and a longer life.
The compound that bridges many disciplines. It's just as at home in the enduro and downhill world as it is in the demanding discipline of all-mountain and trail riding. It also impresses when used in combination with other ADDIX tires - more speed: Soft on the front, Speedgrip on the back. Or more damping: Ultra Soft on the front, Soft on the back.
ADDIX Ultra Soft
The compound for hardcore use in enduro and downhill. Sensationally good damping has been further improved over the previous VertStar compound, while at the same time ADDIX Ultrasoft is suitable for all-weather use due to significantly improved low-temperature properties when it comes to grip and damping.
I run this tire as a front on a Roval Fattie SL at 20-22psi. It has excellent traction and absorbs rocks and bumps very well. It, like many Schwalbe tires, is a bit more difficult to mount perfectly (with no wobble whatsoever) than many other brands. I use lots of soap and a compressor but find that only over time the tire will stretch enough to seat perfectly. Great tire...knock one star for frustrating (relative to other brands) mounting process.
The new Addix compound is great. Rolls fast and has good traction. Bummer is that they can’t withstand any punishment. I’ve literally blown three of these tires out (x2 27.5 and x1 29) in 60 days time. All have been ruptured in the trad, not sidewall. Jenson.usa has been great about things, but I recommend that you steer clear of these as a rear tire if you ride hard.
Great match with a Racing Ralph in Back. Light, little resistance, yet plenty of grip for my riding. I personally do not like wide tractor like tire, but then again I am older and no longer ride very aggressive or "am I going to survive this" down hills. For confident riding in the North Bay area of San Francisco this is a great front tire.
