This mountain bike tyre redefines the term all-rounder. The Schwalbe Nobby Nic Addix Speedgrip TL-Easy can be used in a variety of conditions and in various mountain bike disciplines. This is due to the combination of the compound, tread design, and the fact that you can easily convert these tyres to a tubeless setup. The Nobby Nic mountain bike tyre is made using the latest Addix Speedgrip compound. This ensures the tyre will last for longer while also offering more grip than its predecessor.
A variation is spacing between the lugs creates tread clusters which have a positive effect on grip. It decreases rolling noise as well as resistance. The centrally placed lugs have no rotational direction. The rear wheel sees the tyre mounted in the same way as the front. This allows the U-blocks on both wheels to work together when coping with the stresses of cornering. The rubber on the tread extends further onto the sidewalls of the tyre.
The Addix compound has managed to crack the ordinary trade off between wear, rolling resistance, and grip. This is a dilemma which has occupied the cycling tyre industry for years. Normally, they’d have to sacrifice one of these traits to improve the others, but no longer. Schwalbe has raised the bar even further when it comes to performance and quality with Addix. Not just for XC-racing use, but for all mountain biking disciplines, which all have their own specific needs and demands. For that reason, there are no less than 4 different versions of this compound type available.
This type of compound has a light blue line running along the length of the tyre. The Speedgrip compound is by far the most versatile, and suitable for disciplines like XC, All-Mountain, and Trails. The durability has been improved by 62% over its predecessor, the PaceStar compound, and grip has been enhanced by 35%.
Tubeless Easy. Snakeskin
Schwalbe is a firm believer: tubeless is the tyre technology of the future. The Snakeskin fabric in the sidewall of the tyre makes the tubeless conversion for the mountain bike extremely easy, light and safe. At the same time the fabric provides the best protection against cuts in the sidewall.
