all about the

Nokian Gazza Extreme 294 29 x 2.1 Studded Tire

Suomi Gazza Extreme Tires feature light skinwall casing and 294 sharp steel studs with carbide pins for snowy and icy conditions.

  • It is not uncommon to lose 5-10 studs during normal use due to friction. This does not affect performance and is not considered a defect for warranty claims 
  • Nokian's final stage in production shrinks the rubber around the studs 
  • Non-toxic 58a winter rubber tread compound provides excellent grip on snow and ice

Review of the Nokian Gazza Extreme 294 29 x 2.1 Studded Tire:
Broke the radial head in my arm at the elbow in September, so traction on ice is a must. Because of the broken arm I take it pretty easy, but these tires make me feel safe on the ice. I have yet to have them slip at all. I have put about 60-70 miles on them so far, and have only lost one stud. I am 215 Pounds, don't know if that makes a diffrence. 5 Degrees today, in Helena Montana. Glad I am still riding my bike.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the Nokian Gazza Extreme 294 29 x 2.1 Studded Tire:
Overall this is a great tire for the money. After several rides I have found that you really need to keep the bike upright. Can't really lean into a corner when the trail is icy. There just aren't enough studs on the side knobbies to hold. Keeping that in mind, winter riding has been great. Tires mounted easily tubeless with Stans. Running in low 20's for psi. Could use more volume as these 2.1's seem a little skinny. After several rides i've only lost 2 or 3 studs.

Summed up: Hard to beat the performance for the money. Overall they meet my winter riding needs, way cheaper than the Schwalbe's.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the Nokian Gazza Extreme 294 29 x 2.1 Studded Tire:
Great tires -- no worries riding over packed snow or mirror slick ice, and deep enough tread to handle a moderate ( <= 1 inch) amount of loose snow.

Review of the Nokian Gazza Extreme 294 29 x 2.1 Studded Tire:
Bought these monsters hoping to stay riding this winter but haven't had much time on them considering the weather. Rode Murray Lake in normal trail conditions and these guys killed me trying to keep up with a friend. The rolling resistance is huge as would be expected. Finally got the chance to ride in snow and frozen conditions and the tires were great. I never lost traction while friends without slid out up the hills. So far I've only lost one stud and I did do the recommended 30 or so miles on pavement/hardpack. Overall, great for the intended purpose brutal when not.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the Nokian Gazza Extreme 294 29 x 2.1 Studded Tire:
I could only afford one of these for my 29er commuter this past winter. The first thing I did was go across the street onto the glare ice parking lot.

I was blown away how much control I had with just one studded tire in the front to triangulate my weight

I continued to commute all winter long (in Michigan) with no complaints.

When the old small block eight went back on this spring it felt like I lost a lot of rolling resistance, though.

Summed up: Great tire for northern states

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the Nokian Gazza Extreme 294 29 x 2.1 Studded Tire:
A really good tire for winter riding. Lots of traction. They are a little heavy, but hey it helps improve my fitness, right? They can also slide out a little, but they always seemed to catch. I did the recommended break-in, and I am pretty sure that I did not lose any studs this past winter.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.
