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.
Made absolutely no difference in regards to the road tyres for reducing sound, as for it's lifespan, that's yet to be determined. Probably these will last longer, seem's to wear a little slower, but not used it long enough to know the answer to that yet, but for £23, I don't think they're worth this much, if they were £13-15 I'd give them 5 star.
Makes a nice round tire, good price compared to competitors, does what its intended to do. The first one I bought a few years ago is slightly out of round. I tried getting it perfect many times and just come to the conclusion it is defective. I am a professional mechanic and know how to mount a tire on a bike rim.
No hay mucha diferencia con una cubierta lisa normal. Es cierto que se desgasta algo menos pero la diferencia es mínima comparada con una Michelin Ride que tenía antes que incluso era más silenciosa y cuesta la mitad.
Noticeably smother "ride" on the trainer. The faster you go the more noticeable the difference. I still think they are pretty loud and I still need to wear headphone connected to the TV. Make certain to put a drop cloth or an old towel under your trainer the first several time you use this tire as the black material sheds. This stopped after a couple of hours.
Update after a couple of months: I am still pleased with the performance however the tire throws a lot of small black residue/dust. I now have a drop cloth under my trainer.
This tire started off strong: it was the silent guardian I needed after riding with my road tires for a couple months.
After about 24 hours of riding over the last month and a bit, I had to disassemble my trainer to clean out the rubber flakes that have started coming off (picture and video attached). Now when I spin up to about 20mph, the tire is louder and squeals more than the one I bought this to replace.
