If you're thinking about just plopping your bike into the home trainer with your expensive race tires on there, you might want to think again. Most home trainers, no matter what technology they claim to posses, will chew through tires like rat through some candy bars. So before you go spinning the winter away, pick up a Continental Hometrainer tire. It's made with a special heat- and wear-resistant compound that can withstand the rigorous abuse your tires will go through every time you put them on the trainer. Not suitable for outdoor use.
- Special cold-running compound doesn't build up heat
- Resists the wear and tread separation common on trainers
- For indoor use only, not suitable for outdoor riding
