You have full control on icy roads with the Marathon Winter. Even in tight bends and under violent braking everything remains under control. 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.
*** For best performance, ride these tires on dry pavement for 1-2 hours to seat the studs into the tire. During this time, avoid hard turning or braking. ***
