Used these last winter and the tyres never let me down. they kept good grip and as long as I still rode responsibly I felt as safe as I could cycling in the snow. The tyres were better on ice than in the snow but then again snow is powdery and not as compact as ice. The little studs worked a treat. I first ran them in on roads without lnow first for 25 miles to ensure they were trully embeded.

I fell on Ice few years ago and frightened to ride if temperature falls below 4 degrees Centigrade.
Someone who used these tyres recommended as very good. I was bit skeptical but thought give it a try.

I used this for the second time today when it was very icy all the way to work place and I was impressed with the grip on the road.
It makes a gritty noise as if riding on rough sand on tarmac without any ice.

I was riding slow about 7-8miles per hour to be on the safe side specially downhill.

Basically you can drop the ice scrapers for your windscreen and use these Ice Spiker bike tyres for short journeys.

Still need to be sensible and treat icy roads with respect.

19/1/15: Did 8.8 miles on snow and ice filled bike path. Didn't fall but at times felt wobbly when snow layer is thick and also when ice layer is slippery.

Felt safe on low gears riding slow pace.

Be careful with this product because the last one I had I managed to stretch the rim with some cheap innertubes that I bought ( they bubbled making the inner tube look pregnant ). so it would no longer fixed to the wheel.
I would suggest with this product because of the expense of this item, first blow the innertubes up outside of the tire.
So far this winter it's not been cold enough for Icy enough, to test out properly.
But I've use Schwalbe ice tyres in the past, in ice and snow and if your careful and follow the instructions of how to use in these conditions have a great ride and be safe.

Feel like James Bond! 5 Jan. 2010
By Aristeas - Published on Amazon.com
Stunning grip! Totally stunning! On icy roads or trails, on extremely compressed snow, on ice with a layer of snow on top, on cross country skiing tracks, even on melting ice: the grip is just crazy. I have tried the tyres on the side of an ice rink and even there the grip still feels like on a gravel road.

If you are riding these on really icy roads the experience can be quite disconcerting: there you are, speeding away, leaning into curves and braking at will while everybody around you (including cars) just loses it. You forget the ice to an extent that dismounting your bike can be dangerous because your feet slip the moment you set them down.

There are drawbacks of course: these tyres are heavy (about 900g each); on asphalt with no snow or ice they roll really rough; and they last only for about one winter season if you cycle a lot.

Still, if you want to cycle in snowy or icy conditions then nothing holds a candle to these.

Ok when new, but don't last very long 11 Jan. 2012
By Marc - Published on Amazon.com
I cycled with these for approx 3 months, and now the two center rows of studs are seated so deep that the studs barely protrude at all. I have very little traction on ice. They were great when they were brand new, but I've wiped out three times already on ice because of low traction, even though I ride very carefully and not aggressively (I commute to work).

So yes, they are fantastic when they are new, but they sure don't seem to last long.

And yes, I have the model with tungsten carbide studs. The studs are not worn out, they are simply "pushed in" too deep to be effective. The studs on the sides are still fine, it's only the two center rows that are pushed in.

I'm looking into getting replacement tires (bought at MEC), or re-studding the tire with Maxgrip or Nokian studs.

Really great for commuting on unplowed bike paths. 11 Dec. 2013
By Patrick Blouin - Published on Amazon.com

I'm commuting with these since the first snow. It's -20C here frequently, so these are real winters I'm commuting in. The studs work well at low speeds. On surfaces where I have trouble walking, I can ride my bike over. I've wiped out going downhill and then turning while hitting an ice patch, because I was going way too fast.

The snow clearance is decent.

They're slow (my 25 minute commute turns to 35 minutes in winter, because of snow, and these tires) but it's better than not cycling at all.

Edit:

After commuting from November to late March with these, about 11 miles per day on a mix of asphalt, packed snow and a mile long skating rink on a frozen lake...I didn't lose a single stud. However, the studs are sinking into the tread and becoming less useful. Also, the studs often rust because I can't be bothered to clean my tires and the salty slush is really harsh.

Otherwise, I had a blast this winter commuting in these tires. They are expensive but worth it.
