Bike Spikes by Cesar van Rongen

Riding a bike in snow is a challenge at best, and yet there are snow chains for car tires, why not for bikes? Cesar van Rongen‘s Bike Spikes are the equivalent of snow chains for bicycles – created specifically to ride a bike through snow and ice. Made out of six flexible parts with embedded spikes, there’s a tensionable metal wire that runs through them so that they can be tightened around the wheel. Says van Rongen, “On ordinary asphalt they will still be comfortable. The special winter bike tyre can easily be fixed to any city bike. And when it thaws, the Bike Spikes can be taken off in an instant and folded into a compact little package.”
