Bought this tire for winter riding in Anchorage, AK. We have a lot of icy conditions here and I wouldn't think of riding roads without studded tires. This tire performs well on icy pavement as well as on trails
Nice speedy snow and ice tires. Good on ice but not quite as good as gripstuds so i docked a star. 5 stars on everything else. Great on snow, especially cornering. Roll very well. Light 1360g.
On hard-packed and icy trails these tires are awesome but I have lost a few studs after just a couple rides. I am concerned with how long they are going to last if I ride aggressively.
