- mtb turbo trainer tyres?

I have the Conti and the Vittoria and the Vittoria is a much smoother and grippier (right term for a turbo???) tyre. The Conti is a bit plastic and hard by comparison and was easier to make slip on really hard efforts. Of course the turbo itself affects this too but overall Vittoria is much nicer to ride. Even a 1 inch slick 26 inch tyre was nicer than the Conti in my experience.Posted 4 years agorollindoughnutMember
I bought a cheap Bonty slick for the turbo. About 1.75 I think. It’s black, it goes round and round, not great on the corners, oops sorry wrong thread… Seriously don’t think it really matters, buy whatever’s available. If you wear out a turbo tyre you’ll have become a hardcore racer and will know plenty.Posted 4 years ago
Enjoy your winter and please if you do one thing, download a Sufferfest video to your laptop. Costs about a tenner and will really help drive you to new levels, which is why you’re on the turbo right?
Get ‘The Hunted’ to start; it’s the ‘friendliest’ of them all. The day you buy ‘Revolver’ you’ll be a steely eyed machine (after having a lie down to get over the nausea).
