I had two bad crashes last year in the winter. Don't remember what tires i used, but i had low pressure.
One of them, i punched head in the ground, helmet cracked and i slided a long way down a ditch.
The ice in the ditch cracked and i had half head and shoulder in ditch water.
Not very nice.
After this i decided i needed studded tires. However, perhaps you don't ride where it's also strains of ice?
If so, i would seriously look into using studded tires. The thing when front tire slide, it all goes extremely fast.
I went for larger tires than you can mount, Michelin Wild Mud (27.5') and mounted Best grip/ Grip studs #1000 studs.
This because my frame can't house 27.5*2.25' studded.
This way i got the fattest studded tires i could fit. They work great in ice and snow.
The studs are very expensive, but if you'd find a tire with rather deep/high knobs, you can mount these studs.
The studs themselves are so durable so you can probably undo them and mount them on several pairs (when the old ones gets worn out)
Just a thing, the studs needs 6.2mm of material to thread into. So the tire knobs needs to be deep/long enough.
You just use a tool to screw the studs. Takes time, but it solves the issues with staying on the bike.
