AutoSock HP 735 Winter Traction Aid, For High Performance Tires

AutoSock HP 735 Winter Traction Aid, For High Performance Tires

AutoSock - the simple solution to maximise grip on snow and ice. The secret: high performance fibers. A perfect temporary winter traction aid for vehicles. Quick and easy to fit and remove. Proven to improve cars' safety systems. Reusable. Approved by and sold to leading car manufacturers

Unexpected winter weather can create driving conditions demanding more traction than conventional tires -- or even snow treads -- can provide. But tire chains are bulky to store and can be difficult to put on in cold, snowy weather. Now there is an easy-to-use alternative to chains: Designed in Norway, AutoSock is a new and innovative lightweight fabric-based, temporary traction aid for cars and trucks that is easy to mount and gets a grip on slippery surfaces as snow and ice. AutoSock, a high-technology textile tire covering, utilizes specially patterned fibers that optimize grip on slick surfaces by managing the thin layer of water on top of ice and snow. Through its weaving pattern and thousands of small fibers AutoSock clings to snow and ice, increasing vehicle traction, improving safety and adding to driver confidence.
With AutoSock, you won’t experience the rattles and bumpy ride associated with tire chains, and it is approved for speeds up to 30 mph. AutoSock is easy to install following these simple steps: Stop the vehicle and apply the emergency brake, fit AutoSock to the drive wheels of the vehicle, starting at the top of the tire and working downwards. Then, stretch the elastic band over the top of the tire to the inside of the tire, tighten the crossing strap, and move the vehicle approximately 3 feet and pull the remainder of the AutoSock into position. AutoSock automatically self-centers when you begin driving. When you’ re back on snow-free roads, slip the AutoSock off and slip it back into the included storage bag.
After use, AutoSock should be put back in the storage bag until the destination is reached. Then they can be machine-washed and put back in the bag, ready to go for the next snow or ice storm. Note: AutoSock is not meant for severe snow conditions, and cannot be substituted for chains for travel through mountain passes. The High Performance AutoSock accommodates performance tire sizes (typically OEM sizes for sports cars, SUVs, luxury cars, or +1/+2 wheel and tire aftermarket setups). It is also safe on aftermarket wheels and can be used with electronic traction control systems and ABS. For standard tires, try AutoSock Standard.

Just getting started. Installed headset and fork, and trying to get the cockpit right. Fenders, f&r racks, panniers, kickstand, lights, whole 9 yards coming later. Not the tires I'll be using either.

The frame is a 1996-97 Jamis Dakota AL, the first real mountain bike I ever bought, during the years Jamis made some of the best, under-rated, cross country frames - Dakota AL, Dakar Team, Dragon. It has been up and down NY state, Jersey, PA, North & South Carolinas, Georgia, even Louisiana.

The frame does not come with rack mount eyelets, but I found a cheap QBP seatpost clamp with built-in rack mounts that will do the trick.

The fork is a brand new Surly 1x1, but I may switch it out for a Long Haul Trucker fork (for 26" wheels).

My 15 year old Mountain bike, fixed.
I spend about $50 on gas with my van and hope to save at least half a month using my new bike more often feeling more comfortable and safer.
I do not ride bikes for sport, but for a means to get around and have fun!
This mountain bike has been good to me, is still in good shape and I am reluctant to let go of it, as the 18 speeds make riding that much easier, but for downtown flat riding I love my new Kona Africa bike.
