Indoor rollers and trainers can be killer on expensive road tires. The Hometrainer is specifically designed for use with rollers and trainers. It's made of a cold-running compound to avoid the heat buildup of a normal road tire, and it's impervious to the tread separation that occurs in road tires subjected to the special conditions of cycling and braking on rollers. Colors: All Black. 287 grams.

The Hometrainer is not suitable for on-road use!

I use this tire when using my CompuTrainer - both 'regular' training (tempo) and Zwift races (high intensity). Several hundred miles on it so far with no problems.

Review for Continental 2013 Hometrainer Tire (700c)
1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

Before this trainer-specific tire I was using old road tires but they wore out pretty fast and sprinkled little flecks of rubber all over the floor. This Conti is made of some interesting compound that doesn't seem to heat up at all even after spinning on the trainer for over an hour. I think this will probably outlast a dozen or more regular road tires. Only downside is that it is slippery to get on the rim. Oh, and only 4 stars because it's kinda spendy.

Review for Continental 2013 Hometrainer Tire (700c)

When I first got an indoor trainer, I went with a cheap, low TPI outdoor tire. That worked for a while but eventually started disintegratng from the inside out and the wire in the casing rubbed the tube. I tried a different one and that didn't last half as long. I bit the bullet and bought the Conti Trainer tire and am sorry I didn't do it sooner. It's tough to get on partially because the surface over the bead is so slippery. But it works great and doesn't really wear because the metal drum on the trainer is very smooth. Great product that I recommend and will buy again.

Definitely Worth It

This tire barely gets warm on the trainer. I no longer have that black streak of burning rubber from my regular road tire. To test it, I grabbed the tire right after I finished my first interval workout. It was warm but not hot.

Works better than old road tire and a competitor
rating

I currently have both the Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Home Trainer and the Continental Hometrainer. I use them on the same trainer, but different bikes. The Continental is on a better wheelset than the Vittoria. Overall, both work much better than an old road tire (Continental GP 4000s). You will probably be happy with the Vittoria, but I find the Continental has less slip when I really crank on the pedals. I can't rule out the possibility that the slight performance difference is due to the better wheelset. If I had to get another training tire I would pay the premium for the Continental. With only limited use on both tires there is no sign of wear - just make certain to keep them pumped up to at least 100psi.

I think my title says it all, but I have tried others including Victoria. The continental home trainer lasts longest and is very quiet. Its worth the extra money.

Once installed with a tube, it is a fantastic cycle trainer tire. a little unwieldy to get on, but finally does install.

I use a Tacx trainer for Zwift and had been using whatever older tire I had for my trainer wheel. I never really put too many thoughts into it until a friend told me about this trainer specific tire. What a difference this makes. The feel is not much different but the noise level is considerably lower and I do not see black dust from the wear and tear all over the place anymore. Glad I switched.

I use the 1-Ups trainer (USA!) and this tire works a treat. Since the pressure against the tire is infinitely adjustable on the flywheel, I actually use the an induced slight squeal to smooth out my pedal strokes, No noise means I am pedaling in circles!

I exclusively use Schwalbe for outdoor riding, but this Conti trainer tire is good value, but I replaced a previous one ONLY because it was bright yellow and showed every grease spot. I have never worn one out in over 5 years.

It is a bch to mount!

At least it is on my heavily-spoked Mavic CXP22, that were built for a customer who failed to pick them up from LBS, and they are an excellent trainer rim, since the weight/momentum factor does not matter.

In the past I have always used my worn out Conti's as my indoor trainer tire. I ran out of old tires one fall and decided to try Conti Hometrainer. It's quiet and grippy and was very well. I think it is a bit expensive .... but I am really liking it.

i got a set of these tires two winters ago, they are still in good shape most of the way through the third. Not much smell usually and I don't notice any noise from the tires. I usually put 120lbs in them and they stay good for the week. I recently had two front tire flats, the tire was flat before my ride, one hole at the valve stem (rim problem?) and the replacement split where there was a scab type patch. Since I didn't have another spare tube I took the rim strip out, wrapped three layers of electrical tape around the rim, stuck a Stan's No Tubes valve stem through the hole and pumped it up. It is working fine, I just have to put air in twice a week now, no sealant used. It is a pain in the thumbs, palms, and a few other body parts to get on but I guess that is what makes it work tubeless so easily. Putting some baby powder on it helps it slide on a bit easier, maybe. When I have to take the back tire apart I will convert it also.

Good choice to avoid wearing down your rear tire on your trainer. A lot quieter too. Very easy to installremove (32). I used it to keep you riding while recovering from a hand injury. Would buy again, but dont think it will be soon as it seems durable.

Ordered this tire to use on my indoor training bike over the worst of the winter. Having destroyed a regular road tire in the past, felt like this could save me from purchasing a regular road tire just to see it shredded before the start of the outdoor season. In the past, I've used a end-of-life tire no longer good for outside use. However, didn't have one for this season. Got this training tire and so far it has performed well. It doesn't overhead on sufferfests over 1 hour like my regular tires did. Having used it for 2 months, it appears it will easily last several seasons and spare my other tires for outside road use.

This is a great training tire and like all Continental tire it is hard to put on. This training tire though is quite a bit harder to install onto the rim. I had to use other tools to get it on the rim. Once on though this is a great training tire.

Review for Continental 2013 Hometrainer Tire (700c)
2 of 2 customers found this review helpful.

I put a TON of miles hours on my computrainer year round and rely on the Continental Home Trainer tire to ensure my early morning sessions are completed without a bang, literally. I've tried other brands (will test the Vittoria at some point) and had only very short life of 1 - 3 months, typically with the Continental I seem to get around 9 months between required tire changes. Great value based on this type of economics!! Plus like I mentioned I don't run the risk of a 4:30am shotgun blast in the form of a heat induced blowout scaring the crap out of me!! On that basis alone - priceless!!!
