Things you should know about spiked tires
- Can you ride with spikes also on normal roads?
No problem at all. If, however, snow is rather seldom and the roads are mainly free, the running noises will soon become irritating.
- And you don’t slip away?
No. The spikes dig themselves very well into normal asphalt roads. Even fast curves are unproblematic.
- Are spikes forbidden?
On bicycle tires spikes are no problem. In some countries, spikes are forbidden only for automotive vehicles, as they damage the roads. However, speed e-bikes are considered as automotive vehicles.
- Is it necessary to run in tires?
To ensure the durable hold of the spikes, the tires should be run in approx. 40 km on asphalt roads. Avoid forceful acceleration and braking during this period of time.
- How long is the service life of spikes?
All Schwalbe spikes have a core made of extremely wear resistant carbide (tungsten carbide). With these spikes you can ride a few thousand kilometers. The fact that the corners are rounded by grinding and the spikes are pressed deeper into the material is normal.
- Individual spikes got lost. Can they be replaced?
Yes, replacement spike kits incl. tools can be ordered from Schwalbe.
- When do tires reach their limits?
In deep snow even tires with spikes are no longer a help
- In my region, snow is seldom. How can I make good use of tires with spikes?
The best option is to fit the tires on a second bicycle. In the morning you decide which bicycle is suitable for the respective weather. On icy roads it is a great feeling to have full control on tires with spikes, even when the cars drive very slowly.

Good price-performance. Great rubber and design, but my main pet peeve is they are just re-sized versions of one size without optimizing pattern. Tiny cracks on sidewalls already on delivery - seems that's always weak spot for Schwalbe. Other than that all studs well mounted, fresh and grippy rubber, mounted perfectly round and straight with no issues. Purchased to replace 37-622 summer marathons on city bike worrying 42-622 wouldn't fit. When mounted on 26mm wide rim (outside) they measure roughly 35mm wide and 32mm high (including thread) with 2mm thick thread in center and 3mm near sides. So the size is spot-on and i could've gone with 42-622 to get a little bigger thread blocks. Meanwhile my 26er has 559-47 (1.75") winters. They measure 45mm wide and 40mm in high. That includes 3mm thread in center and 4mm near sides remaining after 3 winter seasons. While some studs are missing the rubber is still as grippy providing predictable handling even on clear ice or deep snow.
great winter tires. whit my little experience seems perfect. It was a bit hard to fit them, and they did not seem so straight in the box, but once they were on, it was perfect for riding on snow and Ice.
