    Anybody tried them and what would be best combination for mixed conditions? Both, front or rear only? 😕

    i think they look pritty good,

    not sure on combinations, and with the amount of snow we get in the uk maybe a waste of money i think…

    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.

    How do these perform when there’s no snow, that is to say, when you hit a dry-ish patch?

    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.
