    What's the diff Nokian NBX & NBT?

    What's the difference between Nokian NBX and NBT? Good for all around tire? Considering the 2.1 for my Epic. Anyone convert it to tubeless?

    The NBX is the aftermarket version made in Finland.

    The NBT was the OEM version made in Taiwan.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I've heard a few complaints about the NBT, so I'd guess yes, there is a quality difference. I have NBX 2.3 (folding) and it's been great.

    Since the 2.3 measures 2.15", for the front just get a 2.3. On the rear the 2.1 might give a bit more clearance.

    It's now called "Gazza All Mountain" and available in 2.3 or 2.5. They are also available as sticky versions with 40a compaund rubber.

    It looks like the gazza, but the 2.3 nbx was a 650 gram kevlar tire that look more like a 2.1 in size.

    It's quite confusing...

    Nokian now has 3 separate sites, each for different purposes (winter tires, general purpose and mtb). You can find the different sites from here: http://www.suomityres.com/http://www.suomityres.com/

    The NBX still exists, also the 2.3" model. However they have renamed the 2.3" model as "Gazza All Mountain" while retaining the same NBX pattern. There is also a wider 2.5" model with the same pattern and A LOT more air room. The 2.3" model is listed as weighing 650g, 2.5" is 950g.

    Here is a listing which is still missing at least the 2.5" with 40a compaund.. Or maby that is a 2007 model? Dunno, that's what I have in the front with a 2.3 40a in the back.
