To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this trainer tyre to replace the 38c hybrid tyre from my old bike that I'm using on the trainer. My main reason for buying a trainer tyre was to reduce the noice from the knobbly fat tyre that was on my bike. The existing tyre was so noisy that I couldn't use the trainer indoors or even on decking outside my house. I'm pleased to say that this tyre has completely solved the noise problem. It is very quiet and I can use my trainer indoors now.
The tyre arrived almost flat. There was no distinct sidewalls and tread areas so putting onto the rim was tricky as it had no shape. I put the tyre on the rim without a tube fairly easily though. I then tried to put my existing tube into the tyre but it was too fat and I had to order a 18c-25c tube which I was able to fit without levers although it did take a bit of brute force to get the final bit over the rim. I was concerned about nipping the tube as I fitted the tyre but all went well. This might be in part to the tube being pre-filled with anti-puncture fluid. I can't be sure.
I really pleased with the tyre no that it is fitted and the wheel is back in the bike. I was exactly what I hoped for when I made the purchase.
Excellent when I eventually managed to get it on the wheel, as it's very quiet and enables consistent power readings on my turbo trainer. However, it was the most difficult tyre I have fitted and I managed to ruin an inner tube in the process.
Runs nice and quiet. You probably need thinner tubes than normal mtb ones but I managed with the existing inners, but it was a fiddle to get it seated, so in hindsight I would have bought the thinner inner tubes when buying this if they are available.
