The single track portion was fairly steep with a bit of snow over a loose saturated sandy pine needle base. I was impressed how well the ITP Terracross stayed hooked up on the snow covered rocks. Ran out of torque in second gear before I ran out of traction.
Am rather impressed with this tire as an alternative. Feels more like a skinny knobby tire on firm surfaces yet sinks beyond the center V blocks gaining floatation & bite from the full 8" width as things get looser. Road manners remain an unknown.
