Schwalbe's most successful mountain bike competition tyre, the Racing Ralph Evo, is now even lighter, with lower rolling resistance, and more grip.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Schwalbe Nobby Nic (11600731) S/S 26X2.25" Tire
  • Much less wheel slip under power climbing out of the saddle, and even handled snow nicely. Climbed well on steep gravel.
  • A really good tire for fall and winter.
  • Great tire. The best out there for sidewall protection on no tubes.
  • With the rocky terrain I ride on, the Nobby Nick's are more durable, never having a flat.
  • I really don't like the compound or cornering grip.
Schwalbe Racing Ralph Evolution Line Tire, 27.5 x 2.25-Inch
  • Good low rolling resistance on asphalt. Almost as fast as Thunder Burt.
  • Fast rolling... Very predictable in the corners... I have a lot of confidence as a result.
  • The tyre provides excellent performance and still has a good kilometers in it before I swap to the new one.
  • Does not burp easily unless riding very low pressure. Good grip and slide outs when cornering hard is predictable.
  • Have not experienced a sidewall cuts or ripped nobbies on my 4 th set yet. Reasonably good wear rate.

What customers say about "Features"
Schwalbe Nobby Nic (11600731) S/S 26X2.25" Tire
  • They have lasted for 2 seasons now and still have plenty of tread.
  • I've been using this as a front with a Racing Ralph on the rear for around three years 11k miles with no complaints.
  • Rolling resistance is great for the knobby size. Weight is also excellent.
  • Their strenght appears on Rocky terrains, wet rocks, wet roots. They are glued to hard wet terrain, I even crossed small or bigger springs that had Rocky bottom, not the slightest slippery movement. Comfortable.
  • They work really well when the ground is a little tacky. Pretty lousy traction on loose gravel and dry dusty trails.
Schwalbe Racing Ralph Evolution Line Tire, 27.5 x 2.25-Inch
  • This is a fast tyre on rock and hardpack. I think this tyre would make a good dry weather choice.
  • This tyre is fast, ok, its knobbles are small so during dry conditions its certainly worth running this tyre.
  • I have now done more than 2,000 km on the original Racing Ralph and not only have I not had a single puncture
  • I have used these tyres on a variety of terrain including hard packed trails, sand and more than a bit of mud. Traction in all conditions is excellent. Definitely recommended.
  • Easy to set up tubeless on Hope enduro rims, not used in anger yet but roll well on dry trails.
