Throughout your time on the ice, a few studs are bound to get sacrificed to winter's harsh terrain. Replace your fallen studs with 45Nrth's Concave XL Studs - Pack of 100. They feature a concave carbide-aluminum design and a two-piece construction method that creates a reliable, high-performing stud. The super-sized concave crown creates open space and inside edges of the bowl, resulting in twice the surface area for increased traction and grip. The crowns also provide a sharp attack angle for excellent grip, and as they wear, the edge only gets finer to maintain performance throughout their lifespan.
Features & Specs:
- Durable concave tip.
- Lightweight aluminum base.
- XL features a larger carbide tip diameter.
- Compatible with the 45NRTH stud insertion tool.
- Sold in a pack of 100.

I inserted these studs on a Dillinger 4.6 inch width tire that is on the back wheel. I have been riding almost exclusively on a groomed snow trail. The trail has sections of several hundred feet of pure ice at times. The traction on ice is great, I can't break the rear tire loose while seated and pedaling hard. I able to go up icy inclines and over cambered icy sections of the trail without any loss of traction. Corners on the ice are not a problem. I installed the studs on the Dillinger which is on the back wheel. I also bought a wrathchild pre-studded tire that is on the front wheel. The studs are light, and have held up well. I haven't lost any out of either tire. It wound be nice if they were a bit longer for traction on a skiff of snow over ice. They are expensive but much safer on ice than not having studs.
