Schwable's Nobby Nic tire was due for an update. The new design is an all-conditions tire made for XC and trail bike use.
The company will no longer make tires labeled as "Tubeless" or "Tubeless Ready," and has combined the best of both versions into one "Tubeless Easy" design that's reportedly easier to seal than Tubeless Ready and lighter than true Tubeless tires. This was made possible by a new SnakeSkin-like monofill material in the sidewall.
