Stunning grip! Totally stunning! On icy roads or trails, on extremely compressed snow, on ice with a layer of snow on top, on cross country skiing tracks, even on melting ice: the grip is just crazy. I have tried the tyres on the side of an ice rink and even there the grip still feels like on a gravel road.

If you are riding these on really icy roads the experience can be quite disconcerting: there you are, speeding away, leaning into curves and braking at will while everybody around you (including cars) just loses it. You forget the ice to an extent that dismounting your bike can be dangerous because your feet slip the moment you set them down.

There are drawbacks of course: these tyres are heavy (about 900g each); on asphalt with no snow or ice they roll really rough; and they last only for about one winter season if you cycle a lot.

Still, if you want to cycle in snowy or icy conditions then nothing holds a candle to these.

I cycled with these for approx 3 months, and now the two center rows of studs are seated so deep that the studs barely protrude at all. I have very little traction on ice. They were great when they were brand new, but I've wiped out three times already on ice because of low traction, even though I ride very carefully and not aggressively (I commute to work).

So yes, they are fantastic when they are new, but they sure don't seem to last long.

And yes, I have the model with tungsten carbide studs. The studs are not worn out, they are simply "pushed in" too deep to be effective. The studs on the sides are still fine, it's only the two center rows that are pushed in.

I'm looking into getting replacement tires (bought at MEC), or re-studding the tire with Maxgrip or Nokian studs.

I'm commuting with these since the first snow. It's -20C here frequently, so these are real winters I'm commuting in. The studs work well at low speeds. On surfaces where I have trouble walking, I can ride my bike over. I've wiped out going downhill and then turning while hitting an ice patch, because I was going way too fast.

The snow clearance is decent.

They're slow (my 25 minute commute turns to 35 minutes in winter, because of snow, and these tires) but it's better than not cycling at all.

Edit:

After commuting from November to late March with these, about 11 miles per day on a mix of asphalt, packed snow and a mile long skating rink on a frozen lake...I didn't lose a single stud. However, the studs are sinking into the tread and becoming less useful. Also, the studs often rust because I can't be bothered to clean my tires and the salty slush is really harsh.

Otherwise, I had a blast this winter commuting in these tires. They are expensive but worth it.
