 This tire may wear down fast if your riding on rough terrain but the grip makes up for that. It is very tacky if your able to get the bike low and trow it into a corner. The braking is super strong and the side nobs are LARGE!! It has a dead spot though for mellow corners that wont grip as well as it does super low.

Schwalbe 2011 Fat Albert Rear (MSRP $100.85) — It is almost ten years ago that Fat Albert took mountain biking into a new era. It was the first tire that provided both lightness and large volume. Now there is a completely new Fat Albert. Its core competences remain though: Large volume. Low weight. Strong SnakeSkin side wall. FAT ALBERT REAR. On the rear Fat Albert provides reliable power transfer. The Rear version has U-Blocks specially positioned to optimize traction and give more control in curves. Fat Albert has tough, resilient lugs, because durability counts more than saving the last gram. The Tubeless version is particularly strong. A butyl layer covers the inside of the tire, while on the outside SnakeSkin fabric covers the side walls.
