The popular Schwalbe Nobby Nic Performance is in a class of its own.The variation in distance between knobs ensures handling and grip are both top notch, while also reducing rolling noise and resistance. The central knobs have no specific directionality. The tyre on your rear wheel is mounted in the same direction as your front wheel. This is so the U-blocks on both tyres can work against the g-forces and resistance of a corner. The rubber on the tread runs further to the side wall of the tyre, so the vulnerable shoulder is better protected against cuts. Larger knobs ensure a prolonged lifespan. A lot of small adjustments generate a large difference: 15% less rolling resistance compared to the old Nobby Nic. Thanks to its wide performance application the new Nobby Nic is a true 'allrounder'.
Intensive users will get the best value for money with these tyres. The rubber compound used with this type of tyre is called Dual Compound. Two different types of rubber compound which ensure optimal performance.
The Dual Compound implies that they have used two rubber compositions. The middle is made out of rigid material which ensures a lower rolling resistance and a prolonged lifespan. The sides are made out of a softer mix for optimal grip in the corners. Tyres will last longer but also provide more grip compared to the Pacestar Compound used in the Evolution line
