ADAC bicycle tire test 2022
Snow roller is there: your bike can also have winter tires!
Adac Special winter tires are available for bicycles
In winter, often only hard-minded bike drive, but the corona danger in crowded buses and trains makes individual traffic with car or bike more attractive than ever. Which winter tires make your bike safe – and where you should do without spikes.
On ice and snow you get into slides with two wheels. But you can protect yourself, similar to the car – with special winter tires. The car is prescribed for winter road conditions, the bike is recommended. The ADAC and Touring Club Switzerland (TCS) have examined eight special winter tires for bicycles, partly with spikes.
Grip always improves with winter tires
The result is shortly:
- For all pneus tested, there is a better grip than with summer tires.
- The braking distance shortens on average by 16 percent.
- Both tires were tested and without spikes. On snow, all tires cut off similarly, on close ice but only the spike tires.
"The studied winter tires Schwalbe Marathon GT 365, Continental Top Contact Winter, Michelin Star Grip and Nokian Rollspeed W with their softer rubber compounds and adapted profiles do not differ significantly with each other, but are all very better than the comparison summer tire (Schwalbe Marathon)", so the ADAC. All these tires have no spikes.
Spikes safest – but problematic
On ice-glossy roads only spikes belong to the ripe real security. "However, these are unpleasant on asphalt and only to recommend where in winter the streets are not cleared and you are actually on snow on snow", Stress the testers. At the "Winter Traveler Skin" From Retyre, the tire developers have come up with something special: here a second skin with winter profile and spikes is mounted over a base summer tire and attached to zippers.
Adac On Eisglatter Strabe you have enough grip on the bike NR with Spikes
The ADAC still gives a few general tips for cycling in winter:
- Reduce tire pressure to 2 to 3 bar – then the tires have a wide bearing surface .
- Bright bright, reflective clothing – and of course a bicycle helmet.
- Use the front brake only carefully if you are on the road without spikes .
