mtfu, are they really worth bothering with for the 2 days of snow we normally get
I don’t know, thats why I’m asking. I’ve seen some for less than £20 but probably out of stock at the moment 🙄 . I was considering them for the next adventure race in 3 weeks time rather than normal riding.
If anything I think the extra weight and low rolling resistance might slow you down. I’d stick with your normal tyres, I’m using a racing raplh, nobby nic combo at the moment, ok maybe I’d be better off with a trailraker on the back but the racing ralph has been surprisingly good even in the snow.

I’m surprised at that! I think Trailrakers would be a good bet especially if its slushy snow. I can see the metal studs on snow tyres only really being of benefit if used on icey roads or hardpacked solid snow, and the chances of those conditions are probably minimal.
