Default Studding a one inch track

Been a lot of years since I studded a one inch track. What is everyone using for length on the one inch rip saw?

That's how I roll. But most find it a bit overkill.
"1.3x"trail studs would be good for most.

You are going to get a bunch of different answers. Based on experience and my riding style I went 1.375. Yes some will tell you that they are to long but I've had good luck as long as I keep them tight. Hooks way better and more fun than than 1.175 or the 1.25 ect..... My 2 cents

1.740" Gold Diggers is what we are running now.

They are holding up well. Sure, you have to watch where you are spinning, but that is true with all studs.

I guess it depends where you ride/snow conditions. I could remember trying studs longer than 1.175'' in my 01 600 edge that had a stock 1'' track....bent quite a few during my first trip to quebec. Went to shorter 1.175''studs and no issues all season.

Imo thats a bandaid asking for track issues...if you want better hookup, get a deeper lug track.

I run 1.63" triggers on my hacksaw. Perfect for aggressive trail imho.
