you cannot ride studded bicycle tires in the conditions indicated by the OP with an electric powered bicycle at sustained speeds and expect the studs to stay in the tire casing.
Higher sustained speeds than a normal pedal- bike on paved terrain, then followed by "nasty, rocky singletrack,with just one icy patch + unsprung wheel weight,all lend to what has occurred. Studs are nut seated in bicycle tire casings sufficiently to handle ebike motors without losing a good many.
good luck getting a refund. especially after explaining how they failed given the application and terrain.
What brand of studded tires can handle a e-bike then?
Thinking about getting one myself for the front wheel. I ride mainly on the sidewalks with occasional paved road.
