In my area of the NW we don't get snow very often but we can get morning black ice conditions for about a two month period if the weather conditions are right. I tried the Continental Top Contact Winter with my road bike but I did not notice much difference from a standard tire. I was surprised how fast you go down if the front wheel slips. A couple of years ago I found a pair of Schwalbe Marathon Winter studded tires on sale during the summer and the following fall/winter we had a two week stretch of icy mornings and I was glad to have them. I got a pair for the e-bike but I have not used them yet.
