I recently bought the (excellent) Kinetic trainer so chose this tyre to help with any premature tyre wear and noise problems. Only used a few times so far but can report that it is very quiet, no slipping on the roller either. As for longevity we'll have to see, I'll report back in due course. **UPDATE FEB 2020** Done around 2300km on this tyre, no problems at all, no visible wear
Made my indoor training sessions much more pleasant. Less vibration and noise than with my normal road tyre and after more than 500 miles is still showing no signs of any wear. Very tough to fit on my Mavic rims but bought another for the wife's bike and fitted to hers without tyre levers. Leave the tyre in it's box on a radiator for a bit before fitting, it did seem to help.
Bought to use on an indoor turbo trainer rather than wearing down my road tyre. You need to remove the road tyre from your rear wheel and replace it with this one for use on the turbo, change back to the road tyre if you're going outdoors. Initially I found the tyre quite stiff and tight to get onto the wheel and ended up pinching the inner tube resulting in a puncture. I then took to youtube for tips on how to fit it! Found some handy tips and have had no problem since. It works well on the turbo, very happy with it.
Dopo aver letteralmente "cotto" un paio di vecchi copertoni, ho deciso di buttarmi sullo specifico.
La cosa che si apprezza dello Zaffiro è la netta riduzione del rumore prodotto sul rullo, ora ascolto tranquillamente audio da dispositivi portatili senza ausili di auricolari, potete completare l'opera con un buon tappetino sotto il rullo e non riceverete lamentele dagli inquilini del piano di sotto.
A differenza dei normali copertoni a fine allenamento si raffredda subito, non so sinceramente quanto sia utile la cosa ,ma confermo che è così.
Arrived flat packed, as tyres do these days, so was a little awkward getting it on. Pumped it up to 8bar and now my fluid turbo trainer runs almost silent. The loudest thing on it was a squeak off my rear dérailleur. I can now use the trainer in front of the idiot box without having to crank the volume up.
These are the best indoor trainer tyres I've ever used. I like them so much I have 2 spares ready and waiting. My current tyre has been in use for over a year and has completed just over 2000 miles (seems only a few miles but consider the friction imposed by an indoor trainer magnetic or oil control roller).
