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
