Nokian w240 review
With low psi not a chance of slippage.
Very successful 1st try at winter riding
braking & stopping
All on snow & ice
1st try at winter riding (commuting). Very amazed at how well they rode, steered, stopped. Looking forward to next fall winter.
Made biking in winter possible.
This is my first year biking through the winter and these tires are helping to make it safe, awesome and fun. I have been out biking at least 60 miles each week this winter and these tires have never let me down. Literally, they have never let me down, I have only fallen once and that was completely my own error. I am car-free and partially thanks to these tires I have never let any weather conditions stop me from biking.
Here are my thoughts on how they perform in various winter conditions...
Ice - The studs dig right in and I have never lost traction. I am extremely confident on ice.
Snow - At the beginning of winter I fishtailed a lot when biking through deep powdery snow but lowering the psi helped tremendously. Now that I am more experienced at handling my bike in deep snow I can run the tires at full pressure with no issues.
Brown/Nasty Snow - This stuff can be crazy and although the studs and knobbiness of these tires help a lot, the bottom line is if the tire can't make contact with a solid base of some sort you are going to lose traction. Again, lowering pressure helped me until I learned how to balance and handle my bike in particularly nasty sections.
Bare roads - This doesn't happen much in Northern New York winters but when it does I can notice a difference from regular MTB tires although the increased rolling resistance isn't that bad. I have seen some people online saying that studs sound like popcorn or bacon sizzling on bare pavement, personally I just hear I slight humming when I consciously think about it.
