Studded bike tires provide the traction and control a regular tire just can't provide when it comes to riding in icy conditions. From frozen lakes to icy road or trail conditions, our line of studded tires are designed to perform in the most challenging conditions.
Not all studs serve the same purpose. Here are the three studs we feature on our tires:
• Concave Studs: This style gives a sharp edge around the circumference of the stud, which provides grip from any angle - turning, braking or accelerating.
• Carbide-Aluminum Studs: This stud is one part aluminum at the base and one part carbide tip. Aluminum keeps weight down on the portion of the stud that’s protected by the stud pocket in the tire while the carbide tip offers superior durability where it matters most - at the point of contact.
• Steel Carbide Studs: This stud looks similar to the carbide-aluminum, but the stud features a dome-shaped tip. It’s more economical and still provides excellent traction in icy conditions.
