Wanted more traction than I was getting from my 1.25 pre-studded ripsaw with added trail studs 2 per bar. So I did some research and decided the Storm 150 2 ply with double backers and 4 studs every other bar was what I wanted. Checked weight of both tracks with studs installed and the Storm 150 was 2 ozs lighter, virtually the same weight as the one ply pre-studded Ripsaw with added studs.. This track just plain ROCKS, I have never had traction on snow like this before. When I used to hit a rise and nail it, it would spin, now it grabs, pulls the skis and launches you off the top of the rise. If you are thinking about a new track, for trail riding or some off trail excursions, this track will not disappoint. This track has a lug height of 1.25 on the outside and 1.50 in the middle with large stiff lugs/scoops. If you want traction for trail riding, this track will put a smile on your face.
