Thats why the car studs are perfect, just last month I was riding down the paved road going 50-60 mph with no problem.
Yeah I should have qualified that...I crashed on the trails in the deeper snow.
I've got Gripstuds on my bike and they work well and easy to install. I'm happy with them. The buddy I was riding with is one of "those" riders that makes everything look easy. He stands all the time, I'm paddling up a slippery deep section section and he's standing with the gas on, rear wheel sliding back and forth hauling ass.
The Gripstuds are taller so are slick on the pavement. I had to do a short section the other day and it's not comfortable but ok if you're not on the gas.
