    hakkapeliitta w240

    Does anyone have experience with these tires. I currently have Schwalbe Marathon Winters and they are great tires but I want a set of "play" tires. I am on the fence about an Ice Spiker or an Extreme as they may be a bit too much tire for me. I'm looking for something that can handle some light trail riding in a few inches of snow. My Marathons will be my go to winter tires until it gets a bit deep. Thanks.

    Get the extremes if your local single-track is icy. The larger volume and extra studs help.

    I have been running with Hakka 240s for the last 2 winters. They should be able to handle a couple of inches of snow and are pretty good in mildly rutted ice.

    That said, I mostly commute on bare pavement with about 5% ice cover, so they may be a slight overkill...
