    New question here. Wanted: Nokian Hakka WXC300

    Does anyone know of any shops in the U.S. that have these tires available? In searching for them, I have not found them in stock.

    Any help here would be appreciated.

    Peter White says they may not be available this year, not sure what that means (discontinued?)

    Keep looking on ebay, I got some 294s on there last year, and saw 300s listed occasionally.

    Both of those weigh around 1000g.
    I had assumed the OP asked about Hakka 300s because they are light.

    Squid - have you tried going to the Nokian website:

    and see the distributors list, then maybe contact who is in your area, so find out dealers that might have them in stock.

    Good job!

    Thanks for the tip on that. I had only made a few calls in the area but I see there is a distributor in Minnesota, so I'll try calling them.

    Most of the information that I have found says that this tire is probably not going to hit the U.S. until December. The problem is, I'm preparing for the Iceman Cometh in November and want to make sure to have a set of studded tires just in case since the race is one week later this year.

    I did find a bike shop in Alaska that has them in stock but wants $125 a tire for them. OUCH!

    Peter White Cycles makes reference to the Schwalbe Ice Spiker which might be an option if they have them in stock.
