I just picked up a 17 Renegade 850 X with an Ice Cobra 1.6 track, I've never owned a pre studded track & always ran studs. I live/ride in New Hampshire where locally it can be very icy but when I head north to ride conditions are typically better packed snow groomed trails. I've read as many threads as I could find here & opinions are pretty split on the IC 1.6, what I've gathered is that some say it has enough traction, others don't, some say it tears easy, others say it doesn't & no one recommends adding additional studs. Without riding it I'm thinking that it won't have enough traction for me since I'm exclusively on the trail in mixed conditions & won't be able to stud it so I should replace it before the season with something that I can add 96 studs too. I'm also concerned about tearing lugs, this track is perfect but two other sleds with Ice Cobra's that I looked at before this one had torn lugs. So, if I keep it & ride it can I add some additional studs if I feel like I need more? And are any folks in New England riding icy trails during the week & packed trails on the weekend tearing lugs or is it operator error? More internet hype or the real deal?
