Chipped carbon wheel on trainer


The chip Itself appears to be cosmetic but I’m worried about the stress line under it. Since these are disc brake rims do I have anything to worry about?

I believe it was caused by running under inflated tyre - an expensive mistake to make I’m guessing

Yeah, no way I would risk riding on that outdoors.

Are you saying you damaged it on the trainer, or you want to use it on the trainer?

What happened to that tire? Is that a bald spot or the tread pattern?

It looks like a gp5000 to me. So just the tread pattern.

If you can see that the chip is just the clear coat and that there are no cracks in the carbon then I might say it’s okay. Especially if this is just from accidentally hitting the trainer. I doubt you could do that hard enough to break the rim and not realize how hard you hit it.
