Ice riding sweden-style

Heres a few pics and a short clip of how we play on the ice here, so take it for what it is, just another way to have fun on your berg.

For tyres I personally prefer finndubb which freely translates to 'studs of finland', theyre just 7,5mm long but very thin, so instead of breaking the ice they pentrate it giving excellent grip. Some use normal enduro studs which is fine too, but the finndubb allows you to lean the bike much more in the turns, hence it turns much better.

Normal procedure for a day is we meet up and then put a log fire on, go out on the ice and have some fun and then bbq, tell a few stories and then do a few heats if all are up for it. Simple stuff enjoying ourselves it is, nothing fancy, just another way of having fun on your berg

The spike tires you have are intented for ice racing, enduro studs are designed for single track and dirt roads.
Some consider enduro studs extremely dangerous on the ice track, the traction they have on ice is nowhere near a spike tire and you can't lean them as hard unless you have custom enduro studs with more angled side-studs.
The ice spikes wear out a lot faster, can't go thru snow as well and can rip off knobs because the huge traction.

I DO change to enduro studs when on enduro ground, this is meant as a display for another usage.
There is noone saying enduro studs is more dangerous than finndubbs, we all ride together and were fine 99%.
Get positive! I just showed our playground basics, that all.
The above Ive done for a long time on other marks

They are fine if you have snow 0 days in a year.

Get yourself some good trelleborg enduro spikes and they are better on snowy road than enduro knobbies are on the same road during summer!

WIF, I do use normal studs too, here in field riding, proof is when I fall on the second lap you can see the front tyre while struggling to get the bike upright, old fart trying to be smart

Hey TomTom, I'm not trying to rain on your parade, just tried to tell other people who might be interested in the difference of winter tires.
