Good Performance tire
Bought the Knobby Nic cause I needed a more aggressive tire for the dirt on my Jet 9 Carbon 29r. I was using the Racing Ralphs but they didn't have enough bite. I rode these tires on the challenging trails of China Peak, Ca. The tires performed well over hard packed trails to rocky and powder trails. I ran the tires tubeless with about 33 lbs of pressure. A higher priced with stronger sidewalls version is available but they are also heavier.

PROS: Lightweight

Wonderful tire!

I use it for all mountain/trail/XC in Maryland. Runs tubeless and pops right in with a floor pump - just need to add some sealant.

Great grip, great weight for the size and traction, great price.

Holds very well on roots, rocks, wet, gravel, snow, frozen mud, etc. Only starts to loose when in deep curve on dry sand or over wet mud, but really can't blame it. With 6-8 hours of weekly usage year round (yes, incl. winter!) for my weight (180 lb) and quite aggressive style of riding, they last approx. 1500 miles up front and 800 miles on the rear, just like any other tire I tried. Lots of cuts and lost knobbies, but no issues holding the air or anything.

PROS: Easy To Install, Attractive Design, Lightweight

CONS: None For The Price

Great traction
I replaced my stock 29er tires with these Nobby Nics and noticed an immediate improvement in control and traction. Probably the single best upgrade I've made on my bike. They make climbs and turns easier and faster. Check your tire pressure though, I tried to see how low I could run them and wound up with a pinch flat.

PROS: Traction

Awesome!
Great tire, especially for the loose and sandy trails in my area. Replaced a stock sworks in the front and it feels like a different bike now.

Nobby Nick 29
This review is for 29x2.25 (not snake skin) performance folding.
It is an absolute dream to ride. I tried it on hardpack - rolls great and grips 2 times better than Nevegal(Nevegal being knoby /gripy tire), on sandy terain - parts of the trail have a real nasty and deep sand and I was able to control my bike like with no other tire (except in combination with Hans Dampf), in wet it sheds mud, grips and it just responds awesomely. I just wish that I was able to get 29x2.35 for this price BUT this tire gives more than I can ask for.
It doubled my confidence and helped me climb a hill I gave up on almost a year ago.

PROS: value, Grip, Everything, price

CONS: Absolutely none

Great tire!
I set it up tubeless and it seated well and never leaked, rolls fast and grips well. What more could you want?

great XC tire
Bought these nobby nics for my Trek 29er. I ride XC trail over the usualy rocks, roots, mud, and what have you. These tires are awesome! I don't slide out of turns, I hardly ever get flats, I just tear it up!! I would recommend these for anyone who rides off road.

PROS: Grip, Durable, Attractive Design

BEST USES: Light Snow, Mountain Biking

Good value
I've used these tires tubeless exclusively for the last two years in So Cal and have had mostly positive experiences with them. My biggest complaint about them is the thin sidewalls--if you ride in areas with lots of jagged rocks, you will likely rip holes in them. However, the tread is awesome. It hooks up in a wide variety of terrain and inspires confidence through challenging sections. Be aware of the thin sidewalls and you will be impressed by these tires.

PROS: Lightweight, Easy To Install

CONS: Thin Sidewalls
