During Interbike RL scoped out the Slipnot Bicycle Tire Chains.
Now if (…err… when) Chicago gets the snow this year, I’ll be ready to rumble to work, even over unplowed streets – with the Slipnot Bicycle Traction System.
Slipnot made a video of riders enjoying winter snow riding without any slippage.
I’m hoping my winter here isn’t that bad, but when the snow falls, at least I can say I’m ready. Heck – maybe I’ll just have to take my bike out for some off-roading fun with these chains. Usually the city streets I use to commute are pretty well-plowed. (Note: this traction system is not intended for use on bare pavement.)
Tire chains come in a mesh bag for washing and should work with any braking system.
I’ll let you know if installation goes as smoothly as advertised:
