Excellent Tire!

PostedJune 17, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight
I bought the Nobby Nics to replace some Kenda Slant Six tires. I bought 2.1" for the rear and 2.25" for the front. I saved 9oz of weight by switching.
These tires stick like glue on everything. Despite their very nobby tread the rolling resistance is quite low.
I am running them tubeless with Stans sealant. They are much easier to seal than the Slant Six's. When the Slant Six tires wear out on my other bike I will be replacing them with Nobby Nics.

Supremely confidence inspiring tyre!

PostedJanuary 1, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great, very grippy, fast
Cons: Expensive
Your search for the best tyre may have just ended!I have been using nobby nics for about seven years now and I can safely say that this is the most trustworthy tyre I have ever used.Whether you are absolutely riding on the limit,racing,commuting or doing utility riding, the nics just hook up - whatever the weather conditions!
I use the 26 x 2.25" size on both my hardtail and my full suspension rig, and they are deceptively fast as well as being extremely comfortable too.
Now everyone detests punctures but they are part and parcel of cycling.The first time I used thee tyres was on a 200mile ride over the South Downs, with its chalky,flinty terrain and no punctures! This may have been luck but I seem to suffer less from punctures than with any other tyre brand though I'm well aware that we all have different experiences.
There are many attributes which set a tyre aside from its competition and one of those is durability.One year I cycled in excess of 8000 miles on a pair before I replaced them- testiment to a supreme rubber compound.
If you can afford them, invest in a surefooted performer and make your own judgement!

Worth the money

PostedSeptember 26, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: Expensive
Decided to go for a pair of Nobby Nic Evos after reading lots of reviews. I'm not disappointed! Grip is exemplary in a variety of conditions. The big surprise however is the low rolling resistance - this has made a huge difference on the steep Chiltern climbs that I encounter regularly. All in all a good choice.

Love these tyres!!!

PostedFebruary 25, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great, amazing grip
Cons: tricky to get on the rim
This is the second set of Nic's I've bought now and I can honestly say I love these tyres. The grip is amazing and they're pretty durable too. The only flaw I find is that it can be pretty tricky to get them on and off the rim. This can be a bit annoying when I'm fixing a flat and I'm stuck at the side of the track all red faced and outta breath before I even attempt to inflate these bad boys with my wee hand pump, but apart from that they're really great. It would probably take quite a bit of convincing to get me to switch to another brand.

My favourite mountain bike tyre

PostedJune 18, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, excellent grip
Great grip on wet mud descents, loose stone paths, crossing streams, over tree roots and even through winter in the snow in the hills round Zurich.
Also relatively hard wearing.
