    Vee Snowshoe XL

    Is it just me or are these studded tires really slow? Iím also a little underwhelmed with the grip on icy sections. Currently experimenting with pressure (4 to 7 psi). Coming off Jumbo Jims which are fast and seem to have almost as much traction.

    Vee tires suck. But no worry, the studs will be worn out in 300 km and that should reduce drag.

    Even without studs they were slower on pavement than my Maxxis tires. Life us too short ch or bad tires.

    Yah the compound sucks in the cold. Reason they are cheap.

    The pointed studs wear fast and just seem to not bite in general anyways, i put concave in and didnt help much.

    White ones are apparently better.

    For cheap studs, the snow avalanche psc white tires are much better. Heavy compared to 45 nrth dillinger but pretty good tires, the xl snowshoes in hard black were my least favorite tires.

    The 'shoes are slow, but okay for cheap fun on iced trails.
    I went with Terrene Cake Eaters, designed to be a fast snow and ice tire.

    Those tires suck. The only upside is they don't last long and you can install real tires.

    My buddy was running those on today's ride in 6 to 8 inches of powder. He walked. A lot. I had a great ride.
