Rated 5 out of 5 by random5 Excellent tire for icy conditions
I have now ridden two rides with these tires and I am amazed by their low rolling resistance and grip on ice. The first ride was for running in the tires and I rode 40-50 km on asphalt (you are not supposed to ride them in on soft trails, studs will not bed in if the surface is soft). On my second ride I went for the iciest conditions I could find (hard packed snow which had melted, then frozen and now it was raining on it, so it was wet). Absolutely superb grip and 100% confidence on sheer ice! Pedestrians were amazed. Although I went for some rocky trails too, I have not lost a single stud, which, I believe, is because I bedded them in properly.
I am looking forward for this heat wave to end, so I can have more fun on icy trails!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous you will lose most of the studs
On the first ride I was truly amazed about how good these tyres are - I was able to ride up sheet ice. However, on the first 3 rides I lost over 70 studs even though i had followed the instructions of riding them at a low pressure on soft trails to bed them in. It wasn't just me, 4 of my riding group that also have the 26'er version lost close to a hundred studs each. We contacted Schwalbe who sent spare studs to some but not others. avoid.

The only time I lost traction with these tires was on highly finished concrete in an underground garage. I've used them through out the freeze and thaw of a Moncton New Brunswick winter and haven't lost my grip once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Идеально катит по утоптанному снегу и льду, держит очень хорошее сцепление с дорогой, но при энтенсивном вкручивании на рыхловатом снегу немного начинает возить заднее колесо в стороны. В целом очень доволен ими
