Schwalbe is getting into the 27.5+ marketplace with two of their most popular models, the Nobby Nic, and Rocket Ron. They’ll come in a variety of versions and two sizes of 27.5×2.8 and 27.5×3.0.

They’ll have their typical Evolution varieties for the Nobby Nic, including the PaceStar and TrailStar compounds, and Snakeskin sidewalls and are TL ready compatible. Depending on the size, they’ll weigh between 820-870 grams and will be available in the Fall of 2015.

The Rocket Ron only come in the PaceStar compound for the Evolutions but get the lighter LiteSkin sidewalls along with, the tougher SnakeSkin. Depending on the size, they’ll weigh between 695-820 grams, and they’ll also be available in the Fall of 2015.

All the tires will come in their cost-conscious Performance edition if desired.

I am looking forward to trying out a set of the Nobby Nic’s in the 3.0” width and TrailStar compound.
