    Nobby Nics or Rocket Rons 650b

    I bought a Santa Cruz Solo and want to put some new tires, I am between the NNics and the RRons from Schwalbe.. which one should I choose?

    I ride steep technical hills with lots of roots and rocks as well as hard stuff. Nad climbing is my priority since its my weakness

    2,25 or 2,4? Snakeskin or not?

    Nobby Nics or Rocket Rons 650b

    For the terrain you're mentioning, Nobby Nics are where it's at. 2.25 or 2.4 depends on your weight and riding style. And yes to the Snakeskin, it'll help avoid sidewall slashes on rocks and roots.

    Nics on the back and you can't go wrong with a 2.25 HD on the front.
