A Win For Winter

Gain full control on icy roads, even in tight turns and under hard braking. The Schwalbe Winter Tire HS 396 650b makes your cold-weather rides safer than ever. These studded tires are perfect for when the temperatures drop and you still want to hit the pavement.

To combat hidden patches of ice, these tires have tungsten carbide studs for incredible durability. The spikes work best on ice when running at minimum pressure, while at maximum pressure the tires can be ridden on ice-free roads with minimal road noise. To ensure that spikes are permanently fixed, tires should be run in for about 40km on asphalt while avoiding any fast acceleration or heavy braking.

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 TPI carcass, reflective lines, and SmartGuard protection, this tire offers great benefits at an entry-level price.


  • SmartGuard belt offers protects against punctures
  • Spikes have a tungsten carbide core for durability
  • Durable 50 Threads Per Inch (TPI) casing
  • Reflective sidewall stripe for added visibility
