Schwalbe Nobby Nic, 29x2.25 Performance Folding- Came OEM on my Giant Trance X29er

Rating:

The Good: * Rolls good with high PSI * Light

The Bad: * Super sketchy as a front in mud, loose dirt, rocks, gravel. * Too narrow profile * Looses grip too easy * Cornering hard feels risky

Overall:

This review is for a Schwalbe Nobby Nic, 29x2.25 Performance Folding tire, non snakeskin

Came OEM on my TranceX29er, Used only once and did not like it.

I am not using it as a front tire anymore, getting a beefier tire for my front (as I ride DH bikes and am used to burly but heavy tires). Maybe the nobs are to small for So Cal dry and loose.

I am keeping the rear since its ok in the back. Good for the rear since it rolls good with 30-35 PSI. I wouldnt use it as a front if you like to pin it

Super sketchy as a front in mud, loose dirt, rocks, gravel. Steering is poor, breaking is subpar

Narrow profile makes it fast which is a plus, but that same narrow digs in to easy and feels unnerving

Looses grip easy

Rode in some light mud today and had to unclip as I didn't want to eat a mud sandwich. Im gonna keep the rear to give it a chance, but the front is bye bye
