Specialized's Nimbus is a great tire for tackling the streets. Its grippy tread is siped to give you confident handling even when the road conditions are less than stellar. Plus, the Nimbus boasts Specialized's excellent Flak Jacket puncture protection technology to keep flats at bay.
I have 3 bikes for diffrent reasons. A all aluminum old school schwinn racer for fast errors and " RACKED IT" for carrying up to 50 extra ibs and have these tires on her. Also have a giant iguana all alum frame with tio bontragers and no comparing them. The niumus flakjackets are higher psi roll much better are faster and have in casual riding this month punctured the bontragers twice but the nimus flacjacket in the past 3 months, solid... never even a re-pump of air yet...That's amazing. I'm going to the shop that sold me the bontraggers and having them removed and the nimbus flak's installed. No way I'm running " NAKED" anymore...JAY 10 year rider
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
