I did some research into tires to use on my home trainer. This one had good reviews, but I saw some comments online about the difficulty to mount this tire to a rim. I've been mounting tires, both clincher & tubular, for over 20 years, and this was the most difficult tire to mount ever!!! Even getting the set side on was a chore, the next side was next to impossible. I broke one tire lever trying to mount it the first time. I reverted to the one thing I've never, ever, had to use, a long handled screwdriver. Yep, you guessed it, I punctured the tube!! So, I put another tube on, but only after five minutes to get even one side loose to change the tube. I was able to remount easier the second time, using three levers. No screwdriver needed.

My suggestion is if you are going to mount these tires, do a dry run with a screw driver first (that is if you don't mind a small ding in your rim possibly) After that, the bead should be stretched enough to then mount with a tube in it.

Once it's on, it's a great tire for the home trainer. I guess it's hard to put on so that it stays on under the stresses of a trainer roller. The compound doesn't heat up at all, and is less noisy then a road tire. The grip is great, no slipping when doing a sprint. I recommend that if you use a trainer (vs rollers), to take the load off the tire in between uses. Otherwise I'm sure you'll get flat spot. And don't be afraid to go to the 120 psi recommended. I took it to 115psi, could have gone to 120.

I live in the Boston area and once the snow falls, we really can't ride outside for weeks at a time. By swapping out your regular tire and using this hometrainer tire, you save your good rubber for the road, and also get much better traction on your roller and indoor trainer.
It seems quieter and smoother on the trainer. So far so good.

I had this tire on a Mavic Open CD rim. No problem. Wanted to change bikes on the trainer. One bike is Campy the other is SRAM. The second rim is an EASTON EA70. It was impossible. Rim width is key.

Used this tire all last winter. It shows almost no wear. It doesn't slip. It's not supple at all. It's thick. That's one of the reasons it's so hard to mount.

I was going through normal tires on the computrainer like mad before getting the home trainer tire; after which I have not had any visible wear on the tire at all. These tires also do not dust like road tires when on the trainer which keeps things much cleaner. One problem was that the tire developed a huge bulge when a tube went flat. Hopefully a one-off issue, and I have since replaced the tire. I have not gotten around to calling Continental to see if they will replace the tire.

Update, after almost three years, with intensive use on the trainer over the winters where 5 hour rides were common, the tire finally gave up. I was very satisfied with the life I got out of the tire and still recommend it.
