Schwalbe 2015 Nobby Nic - Review
Schwalbe tyres are NEVER at their advertised weight. I've got a Magic Mary that was originally claimed to be ~850g. It was nearly 1.1kg! Same with the HD. Significanty heavier than than advertised. Coupled with them as quoted above, burning out quicker than a cheap firework display, I went back to Maxxis and Specialized tyres.

Won these at a race, being a 32" waist, they are a little on the large size for me! Brand new, never worn.

No rips or tears, good for a 32-34" waist. Only worn 10-15 times.

Black, no rips or tears - fit is for a 32" waist. Their sizing is a bit odd, but i'm a 32" and they fit me fine.

Barely used, as I no longer race DH properly. Worn on approximately 10-15 occasions. No rips, tears etc. technical info: A short sleeve jacket with shoulder-cups, breast plates and a back protector. One of few certified at Level 2 (“High performance”) of the motor cycle standard EN 1621-2. The new back-protector-concept is made of the new Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough (VPD) that gives a high level of protection as well as a unique capability to adapt its shape to your body. The ambition has been to support mobility and comfort, incorporating the highest possible level of spinal and torso protection. Technical features: • Breathable mesh for ventilation • Ventilated polypropylene shoulder protection • Ventilated polypropylene breast plate • Removable and flexible waistband • Patent-pending snap-on Cervical and Coccyx in sandwich-moulded and lined polyethylene. Our VPD back protector outperform the EN 1621-2 standard Level 1 (18kN) reaching the higher Level 2 requirements (9kN). Still many CE approved protection systems have a relatively static impact absorption curve and are constructed to just pass the specific CE-Norm test. This means that low energy impacts are transferred almost directly to the body. Our VPD back protector does not only exceed the required shock absorbance CE-values, it also releases the energy gradually so the spine will not be exposed to any force peaks. • Extra layer of high density Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough (VPD)in spinal area for maximum protection • Low density VPD for flexibility • Ventilation holes
