Nobby nic advice please
“Performance” are Schwalbe’s cheapo line, they use a cheaper, harder compound than those marked “Evo” or more recently “PaceStar/TrailStar/VertStar”
Snakeskin adds a level of puncture protection/cut resistance that’s very much worth having unless weight is your absolute priorityPosted 4 years ago
Bike came with mountain Kings, came straight off, got a dampf on the front which is mega, after a nobby nic for rear.
What’s the difference please?Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
My Snakeskins punctured if you gave them a sharp look, so god knows what the standard ones are like… But if you’re partnering it with a Hans Dampf I’m assuuming it’s going to see some hard use so I’d say at the very least, snakeskin. But personally I wouldn’t go there again, mine were annoying while they lasted, and they didn’t last long enough.Posted 4 years agochivesMember
The snakeskin reinforcement’s only on the sidewalls – I prefer snakeskin over the regular Evo carcass, as it doesn’t roll/squirm so much when run tubeless at low-ish pressures.
Typically, I slit my new NN on the crown, first time out! Easy fix once home but always carry a tube to actually get there!Posted 4 years agoseadog101Subscriber
My bike came with Nobby Nics. I’m not sure if it’s me or the tyres which are rubbish. Probably me.
I thought I’d give them time, but nope. They seem to be overly slippery in the wet (hence a head first into tree incident), and kind of scatty in the dry dust of current weather.Posted 4 years ago
