Strengths:    Amazing traction

Weaknesses:    Weight, but thats with all studded tires

Bottom Line:   
There is snow on the ground from October till May where I'm from.

These tires are amazing. Super fast, tons of traction. Barely have to sacrifice any speed on my 20 km of commuting a day. Works really well on snowmobile trail rides too!

Strengths:    These tires stick really well on snow and ice and work well enough on slush. I use them for casual riding mostly when there's snow out so i don't wear out the studs prematurely.

Weaknesses:    Lost one stud almost immediately after my first ride but haven't lost one since.

Bottom Line:   
If you ride a lot in the winter and are looking for a great all-round winter tire that'll grip on ice and snow, you can't go wrong with these.

Date Reviewed: April 2, 2010

Strengths:    Bites through snow and ice, amazingly while you watch other cyclists pushing and cars sliding, drop a gear and turn the crank, you'll never again push! there is no need to run them on tar before using.

Weaknesses:    heavy and drag a bit, but this tyre is for extreme winter cycling minus 10+

Bottom Line:   
you can cycle with extreme confidence that you wont fall off if you hit unexpected ice. can be used on tarmac. the only draw back is drag, but with 240 spikes per tyre digging in what else would one expect. £50 GBP each tyre. will last for several season a great purchase for the intrepid cyclist enthusiast.

Submitted by Norman Johnson a Cross Country Rider from Waterford, Michigan USA

Date Reviewed: December 25, 2007

Strengths:    Good traction on snow / ice / leaf covered trails

Weaknesses:    heavy, didn't handle laps on a slick frozen lake as well as expected (I thought they would stick like my old studded motocross tires would - wrong!)

Bottom Line:   
These tires did well for intended use on trails with ice patches mixed with crusty snow - never crashed on some local trails, and only spun out on one steep climb. However, I was hoping to spin fast laps around a frozen lake, but had to keep it relatively slow with very gentle turns to avoid sliding on the glare ice.

PSI for studded tires on trails - Conti Spike Claw 120

I just got a set of Conti Spike Claw 120 studded tires that I will be using when there's a lot of ice on the trails. Looks like I may get an opportunity this week to give them a try. I'm looking for tire pressure recommendations. I normally prefer lower tire pressures (around 25 psi), but I'm not ... Read More »

Damn you spike claw = flat tire every ride!

What's the best way to stop these claw gators giving me flats all the time. I'm riding in New Mexico and these things are everywhere. Pulled out about nine from each tire the other day! In case this doesn't make sense it's like a seed with three or four large spikes on each-end. Cheers.Read More »
