It was excellent!!
Great tire on packed and icy trails
I bought one for my front wheel, 27.5x4.0, 120tpi. Took it out on a local trail in MN and this tire is simply awesome. Lots of grip even on ice. You don't really need studded tire if you're using the Vanhelga unless the trail is covered will all ice. Very happy with the tire and decided to use one for the rear also. Very highly recommended.
