Rated 4 out of 5 by Chamo Funciona bien sin embargo esperaba que fuera menos ruidoso que una cubierta normal
Compré el Tacx Trainer Road Tyre no solamente para no gastar mis cubiertas de carretera sino por que esperaba que se redujera el ruido.
En general funciona muy bien, agarra perfectamente sin derrapar aun en cambios bruscos, sin embargo no he notado ninguna diferencia vs. utilizar la cubierta normal de carretera. Conforme la utilice más podré ver el nivel de desgaste, el cual espero sea inferior al de una cubierta normal de carretera.

Rated 4 out of 5 Great Buy
I bought this,having read some of the reviews available, to try out on a new turbo trainer. Unlike some other people I found it very easy to fit despite it being a folding tyre and wanting to re-fold itself! I did manage to blow an inner tube when trying to get 120psi at the first attempt but I think was probably my fault rather than anything else. I'm fortunate that I have an old bike on which I can use this so there is no problem with keeping having to change to a road tyre. The difference between this and a road tyre in terms of noise is quite incredible, my new turbo (oil/fan) was already quieter than my old fan trainer, but with this tyre in operation it becomes noticeably quieter. I have it set up in the loft (well out of the way) but I have had no complaints from the wife or the neighbours regarding noise filtering through the floorboards.
Well worth the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Ive found this tyre quite useful. Its much more quiet than the road tyre. Maybe it is a little harder to install, but its not that big of a problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Devilish to get on and off
I bought the 26" tyre so I could train on my hardtail and watch DVDs when the weather is grim. It's a good enough idea but you'll probably need a spare wheel, because a quick tyre change isn't an option. I broke a tyre lever trying to get this tyre on. It was a real struggle, enough so to dissuade me from trying it when I have less than an hour to spare. You'll probably also need a smaller inner tube because at 26 x 1.25, this is a lot smaller than most MTB tyres, so my spare tubes were ridiculously oversized in it. I now think I should have bought an MTB slick, which would have been cheaper and would have been OK for my commute, too.
