I don't agree actually, the Racing Ralph knows what it is, a fast-rolling XC tyre without a lot of grip. The Nic has the tread pattern for grip and pretends to have it, but in reality it slips around like a greased pig. Hans Dampf or Magic Mary are much better Schwalbe offerings.

Have these on my Scott and not great in the wet. Will be changing soon probably for high rollers.

But a good price

I can’t argue with the hans dampf and magic Mary which has always been a downhill favourite, the nobby nic ain’t bad for winter rides it’s not as grippy as the hd and mm but for a basic off-road bike I’ve been happy enough, although I’ve started to find maxis tyres better for the bigger suspension enduro bike

whats the grip like on the roads in the rain? my current tyres slide without warning when taking corners in the wet, i used to have smart sams and never failed me once. im looking for something suitable for a hardtail that gets road and canal path usage in the wet and dry. Any input appreciated
