NOTE: When fitted to a Brompton, rear tyre will scratch underside of the main frame when fully folded. Some form of frame protection tape will be necessary to prevent paint damage.

Reduced to its essentials. With half the amount of spikes, the Winter provides excellent control on glassy ice. Only in extreme cornering is its big brother Marathon Winter superior. With 50 EPI carcass, reflective lines and K-Guard it offers great benefits at an entry-level price.

Total disaster

Prosprobably good grip
I bought them in the end of the fall and was pretty confident that respectful brand will meet my expectations. But unfortunately I had three punctures within first 200km and those were caused by spikes of the tire itself, tried different pressure but no luck. Few spikes are lost somewhere on roads of Helsinki. Will just throw them away.

PS: Pretty hard to install them on a brompton rim.

ConsNarrow Width [For to cut through snow]
ProsSoild Grip
My Land Rover magazine keeps recommending the vehicle version the General Grabber Snow Grabber. Are fed up with the frights on icy roads on normal tyres so when seen these in a sale it's a no brainer. Road Pattern - Tick! Lightly Studded - Tick! Puncture Proof - Tick! Vehicle Pattern - Tick! My last Schwalbe Snow Stud lasted over ten years on two bikes, half worn and only just perishing so thought I'll try these. Are fed up with the ridiculous online prices so was well pleased to find these at a ridiculous cheap price. Felt too was an ideal choice for climate change as the Michelin Climate Cross vehicle tyre got me thinking...
Grippy But Hard Work.

ConsNoise, rolling resistance
Excellent grip, big improvement on ice and mud. No problems with punctures after around 100km. Fit a Brompton ok.
Need 40km on tarmac to wear in.

Downside: very noisy on tarmac, they crackle. Can be left on all the time but with lots of rolling resistance you wont want to ride them unless conditions demand it.

Conspoor quality, short life
Version 16x1,2 very poor quality. After 300 km of usage spikes broke through the tire and punctured the inner tube. Additional puncture protection liners does not help. You could see the pictures on Russian brompton club.

Schwalbe Winter HS396 Tyre - 16 x 1.20 Inch , 30-349
I'm a cycle journalist and also publisher of the book Brompton Bicycle which I believe you have stocked in the past.
Editor of A to B magazine David Henshaw would like to run a review of these studded tyres that fit Bromptons. Would you be able to send a pair for review?
Hi there,

You would need to buy them as usual I'm afraid.
