Schwalbe Nobby Nic and other Alternatives to Racing Ralph
I have Racing Ralphs on my Giant AX1-29. They perform well and the trails I ride are not too rocky, but there are rocky/gravel sections and roots, and it's been rainy lately. I try not to ride when it's wet, but sometimes some wet sections remain after waiting for the trails to dry.
The Racing Ralph is performing fairly well, but I find in the mud and on roots it does not deliver.
I was looking at Nobby Nic as an alternative because they seem like they aren't much slower, and yet the more open tread looks better for mud and roots.
Is the Nobby Nic a logical alternative choice considering my needs? I see the HD is also well liked, but I don't quite think it's necessary for my needs, as it is heavy and even lower rolling resistance.
While we're at it, what about the differences between evolution, performance, pace star, trail star and double defence vs snakeskin...lol. Any thoughts?
