Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Good tyre
I use it on my winter bike's front wheel in Moscow. It's the best and cheapest solution for snowy and a bit icy conditions. It's silent in front direction and produces nice sound in corners. Still it's good on cold dry asphalt. But be careful on wet and slopy roads especially in corners. Have a nice ride!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Подходит только для города. Для более экстремальных условий не очень. Сделана точно не для чистого, байкальского льда. По чистому льду скользит словно летняя покрышка.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous a bit safer than normal tyres
From my experience these Spike Claw 120's are good on snow but only slightly better on ice than normal tyres. When I find myself sliding I realise the outer spikes are only scratching the ice, not really digging into it. I kick myself for not paying more and getting the 240's. The spikes round the edges make cornering seem more secure, even though there's no grip from the central tred, but I'm not convinced enough to risk skidding off at any speed on sheet ice. Given the choice between my Cannondale Bad Boy with these tyres and my Federal BMX with normal tyres, I'd go with the BMX as it's low centre of gravity helps it stick to the road effortlessly. Spike Claw 240 tyres on a BMX with even deeper studs would be the ideal combination.
