When it comes to tires, I’m lucky enough to have a lot of options along with an extra pair of wheels that allows me to have different setups ready to go at a moments notice. That leaves most riders searching for a solid all purpose tire, one that doesn’t suck in any one condition, but rather excels in most if not without a few sacrifices.
Previously, Schwalbe only offered two rubber compound options, Triple Nano and Gooey Gluey.
For the duration of the review, I was aboard the Nobby Nics which are in the PaceStar category. After actually getting the tires on the scale, the weights are above the claimed, though that doesn’t tell the whole story. In addition to the weight of the Stan’s, the rear tire also includes the weight of a Hutchinson Tubeless patch, after a particularly bad landing on rocky trail with much too low of tire pressure. I’ve ridden the Nics in just about every condition imaginable from mud soup, to sand and rock, to North Carolina mud, snow, etc.
After somewhere around 500 miles of riding on this pair of tires, tread wear is still hardly noticeable. From the beginning, the Nobby Nics have been a joy to have on my bike due to the fact that I knew I would always have the right tire for the conditions. Just a point of clarification, the Nobby Nic is indeed directional, but it’s supposed to be rolling the same direction regardless of whether it is on front or rear (no flipping).

Hi Bryan, appreciate the review I’m doing the same mod to the lock I just picked up, the body does feel bulky and plasticy. Ryan, I’m right there with you on this bike, all I can think of is for $5k i could build a carbon race bike, an aluminum crit bike and a vintage steel framed commuter. I’ve heard people love the rose colored lens- but these light beer colored lenses are really great in low light. 20" bikes and folding bikes are great for how compact and convenient they are and how well they climb hills with electric motors. All of our Schwalbe tyres on electric bikes have a reflective sidewall for lateral visibility at night. The Me 262 is considered to have been the most advanced German aviation design in operational use during World War II.
This allows me to run tires with very specific characteristics that are able to be swapped out at a moments notice.
Recently, Schwalbe introduced some changes into their tire line up including the new Triple Star Evolution casings, and more importantly to me, a tubeless-ready bead. As mountain biking branches off into more and more sub categories, Schwalbe felt the need to increase their compound offerings to better suit the wider range of needs. Triple Nano compound was unsuitable performance-wise and the rolling resistance of Gooey Gluey was too high. It is a further development of the Gooey Gluey compound, but now even softer with extremely good damping properties.

I typically run wider tires than most XC riders in the area because I like the increased traction in sketchy sections, but I don’t want to sacrifice weight to get it. I initially weighed them straight out of the box, and I’m nearly certain that both tires were quite a bit lighter.
This was in fact the very tire I used to review the patch kit, and while it sucks that I flatted, I can’t really blame the tire this time.
The Nic’s tread is made up of widely spaced squarish knobs that have a distinct center, intermediate, and edge spacing, all of which have some type of relief to allow the knob to deform slightly for better traction. Most of my riding has been on dirt trails with little rock, although there have been a few trips to much more abusive trail systems, and the Nobby Nics are still no worse for wear. At nearly $89 retail though, many riders will balk at the price though it might be worth a second look.
The Big Apple is the perfect choice for a 20" electric bicycle because it's balloon-like profile offers some suspension for a comfy ride.
However, a big drawback is that they are not as comfortable to ride as larger-wheeled bicycles.
Me 262 pilots claimed a total of 509 Allied kills (although higher claims are sometimes made) against the loss of about 100 Me 262s.
The Allies countered its potential effectiveness in the air by relentlessly attacking the aircraft on the ground, or while they were taking off or landing. While ideal, this set up is certainly not realistic for most riders who tend to run only one, or possibly two sets of tires the entire year. These additions coupled with the proven all around tread pattern of the Nobby Nic could add up to one of the best all purpose tires out there on paper.
What emerged were 6 distinct rubber compounds that ranged from hard, long wearing rubber with fast rebound, to soft, faster wearing rubber with slower rebound. Snakeskin is basically a reinforced sidewall, which I am all to happy to run on the rear to prevent sidewall cuts and abrasions. With a claimed weight of under 600g for both tires, I was excited, especially since they are quite voluminous.
Unfortunately, through a computer error, I no longer have the pictures of the initial weigh in. I happened to forget my pump before we left for a big road trip, and let me tell you, riding Green’s Lick trail with about 20 psi is not a good idea. Traction was always available in spades, allowing for frightening confidence through some of the worst sections of trails. The tubeless ready addition is probably the biggest difference between the new and old Nics as it completes the package.
Priced at retail, a pair of Nobby Nics will run you roughly the equivalent of two pairs of your average tire, but if you are getting the one tire you will run all year and won’t have to bother to change it out, isn’t that worth something? Note that many of the eZee Quando and eZee Street bicycles came with Schwalbe Marathon Plus 20" x 1.75" tyres.
This is because little bumps feel like big bumps on a small diameter wheel due not only to the relative size of the objects but also to the fact that smaller wheels fall more deeply into holes on the road, making the size of the bump actually bigger as well.

The design was pressed into a variety of roles, including light bomber, reconnaissance and even experimental night fighter versions.
Maintenance during the deteriorating war situation and a lack of fuel also reduced the effectiveness of the aircraft as a fighting force. The front tire without Snakeskin is scary thin, though after a few rides through some rocky trails I never had an issue. These shots are weighing the tires after they have been run tubeless for months with Stan’s Tire sealant which leaves quite a bit of dried latex after a while. In all but the heaviest, peanut butter mud, the tread quickly clears any debris which leave you with a clean grippy tire.
Seriously, other manufacturers who aren’t building tubeless ready tires need to take notice. Honestly, if I were forced to have one pair of tires on my bike at all times, it would definitely be this pair of Nobby Nics. I know people who run non-Snakeskin tires and are fine, but they are more of the racer type.
However, you can fit either tyre on any of the bikes, regardless of what they came with originally.
Also, small bikes are more manouvrable but less stable when compared to a long bike like the eZee Torq or Kona Ute, which also makes for a less relaxed ride. In the end, the Me 262 had a negligible impact on the course of the war due to its late introduction and the small numbers that were deployed in operational service.
The larger front tire is actually the lighter of the two, but I believe both tires were under 600g to start. Once patched though, the tire sealed up tubeless, and hasn’t given me any problem yet. This generation of the Nic even seems to roll better than the previous version which would lead me to believe a lot of it has to do with the new PaceStar compound. When you are really pushing it through corners, the Nics do tend to give a bit which will cause you to run slightly wide, although at ~600g for a tire you can’t exactly expect DH tire performance. The Schwalbes seated up perfectly with no leaks or hassle, and offer a tubeless ready tire that is crazy light that doesn’t burp. They’re light, they grip everything, and they are long lasting, what more could you want? The Big Apple is the perfect tyre to lend some comfort back to the class of small and folding electric bicycles, as it is part of the Balloon Bike family of tyres which is actually just as effective as mechanical suspension when encountering small bumps along the road (but not if you plan on jumping off rocks with your bike).
More importantly, any give that the Nics exhibit is very predictable allowing these tires to be ridden fast and loose with confidence.
