Good Grip & Easy Rolling!
The Schwalbe BlackJack 26" MTB Tire is super versatile, durable, and a great value.
Tightly placed center knobs allow it to roll easily on all types of surfaces and more aggressive side knobs keep it stable on loose terrain or off road.
Schwalbe's K-Guard protection adds a protective layer made from natural rubber to keep the air where it belongs—inside.
The Blackjack is a great introductory MTB tire or a useful tool to the commuter with a mixed-terrain ride.
- Available in 26 x 1.9" and 24 x 2.1" sizes

This is a good tire to balance street and dirt riding. I haven't tried it on dirt, but the knobs look decent for digging into loose over hard or getting over wet rocks and roots. I wouldn't suggest these as a off-road only tire, as the center knobs don't have gaps for grabbing rock/roots. I don't think these would shed mud well either.
On the road, they roll relatively fast and don't make a lot of noise. The rubber compound is softer than a standard road tire, so you will get above average grip, especially on uneven surfaces and poorly maintained roads.
I do a combination of dirt and street and this tire fits the bill. Handles nicely in the dirt and while a little lumpy on the street, it has plenty of grip. I really like the look it adds to my bike.
