    Ultremo R1 on Trainer?

    If I'm too lazy to change to a training tire for a 1 hour session on my Cycleopse will it destroy my Schwalbe Ultremo R1 ?

    destroy?

    No, but I personally only use my ultremo R1's on my race only wheels. They see the trainer when they have to if I am using them for warm-up pre-race. But even then, I like to warm-up on the road.

    There are other threads about how little rubber in on the R1. I am pretty sure they wont last long as an everyday tire.

    I do like them as a race tire for crits though.

    I've used my Ultremo ZX's on the trainer a few times and haven't noticed any extra wear on them. I don't clamp the tires down super hard though.
