These are fantastic too; no slipping on any of the ice or packed snow today.
Scott R. Henderson
It rides smoother because of the tread design and it only has half the number of stud vs. the Extreme.
MVW
They will add safety, fun and a sense of security to your cold-weather rides.

This tire has changed me from a " mostly snowboarding wishing I could ride on the snow with my mt bike" to a " mostly riding on the snow cuz it's free and unbelievable" guy. These Nokian tires are animals. Now that the ground is frozen and the crusty ice and snow have laid a perma blamket on the ground, this tire will change your winter singletrack world. The absolute best case scenario is that you have access to snowmobile trails. Cuz these tires like the packed stuff. And if you are surrounded by fressh snow then snowshoe, walk, bike or atv your trails at least once and then get out and aggressilely claw your way thru the single track. In fact you will have better traction on the steeps in snow and ice then you would have on dry dirt. I'm telling you, you wont believe how steep you can climb with these tires. I went riding today on frozen snow, ice, and earth and never once did my rear tire slip. I read someone else's review saying that these don't do well on hard packed... nonsense, the hard packed is what you want. Again, if your trails are untracked and crusty - where you break thru the top layer and it is just an insane amount of work - then you need to accept it as a workout for your chicken sticks or you just need someone or something to ride thru and break it in, even just one pass with your hiking boots will do. Trust me, you will be wearing a big ole grin.

Despite owning a slightly different Nokian model of tire, I wanted to give my enthusiastic endorsement of the Nokian studded tire range. Without a doubt, these tires are the most game-changing bicycle product I have used. In essence, they allow riders to safely traverse glare ice and slush-covered streets, making riding your Nokian-equipped bicycle across these surfaces safer than walking on them.

The technology behind these tires is steeped in the machine-tool-industry. Instead of using steel for the studs, Nokian employs tungsten-carbide. With 50 times the wear resistance of steel, tungsten carbide provides exception life expectancy.

The hardest metal in existence, tungsten carbide is typically in cutting tools as a replacement for diamonds. It is that hard. Lock the rear brake and you will see a trail of score mark as the studs cut through concrete.

Because the studs are blunted and are only a millimeter in diameter, there isn't an appreciable increase in rolling resistance over conventional tires. Riding on a dry surface will create some additional noise, but it is relatively minor.

If you are commuting in cold climates or merely want to ride wheelies on glare ice, the Nokian studded should be an integral component of your winter cycling arsenal. They will add safety, fun and a sense of security to your cold-weather rides.

Pros

Excellent traction

Low rolling resistance

Reasonable weight

Cons

Hard to get the pressure right for changing surface conditions

Don't work well are hard-packed snow

I purchased the Nokian Extreme tire to replace my worn out steel studded Innova rear wheel. FYI, don't bother with plain steel studded tires if you ride on pavment - the studs will wear down before the end of the season. I purchased the Extreme tire because last year I purchase a Nokian Mount & Ground "W" tire for my front wheel and it performed great.

This tire setup works out perfectly for me. I have the Nokian Mount & Ground (26X1.9) on the front. It rides smoother because of the tread design and it only has half the number of stud vs. the Extreme. It also cuts thru the snow and slush and is easier to handle due to the slightly narrower profile. The wider Extreme tire gives me awesome traction.

I have a 12 mile round-trip commute just south of Green Bay Wisconsin. I'll ride as long as the wind chill doesn't get lower than -10F and as long as there aren't any snow advisorys (not for my sake, but I don't want cars sliding into me!). Last week we had a blizzard with over a foot of snow. Immediately afterwards I was riding on plowed roads that were covered with snow and glare ice. I had perfect control and the Nokian Extreme didn't slip one bit as I rode up two gradual inclines on my route.

I'd recommend these tires to anyone who has snow or ice covered roads to ride on!

Bought these in march, and installed them in november, for the massive price break.
I rode my 29er home from work, on a sidewalk that was a high traffic area by a college, the snow had melted
to slush, and re-frozen with massive ruts, footprints, and pretty much 3 inches of really rough textured ice.
These tires clawed and carved their way through the crap like it was irregular gravel or loose slag. Really.
There is no way I would have been able to traverse that route with any other tire I've ever tried.
Victory. I declared it.

The Nokian Gassa Extreme 29r tire is an amazing snow tire in most situations. It's biggest advantage over other snow tires is it's ability to go where you want it to and not where ruts from cars or other bicycles are going. This is a problem in the NW because our snow usually melts partially during the day and then refreezes at night with all those ruts cast solidly in it. I have ridden several different brands and models of studded snow tires and one of them did better in deeper snow than this tire but this tire still rides better than most other tires in that situation. I found that I ride much faster in the snow than I had on the other snow tires I have tried, but slower on bare pavement due to it's width and aggressive tread. I have not lost any studs yet. I ride aggressively on snow and ice, but then I ride carefully when I hit bare pavement because others have complained of stud loss. This is the tire you want for snow and ice. You should look for a narrower tire with much less aggressive tread if you want to ride well plowed or mostly bare roads because the width and aggressive tread will slow you down on bare pavement.
