Designed for speed and maximum control in all road racing conditions, the Fortezza Senso All Weather takes over for Vredestein's incredibly popular Fortezza Tricomp.

This new design uses the proven TriComp rubber compound to provide low rolling resistance and superior grip thanks to three strategically placed rubber densities. The addition of AWS rubber technology, borrowed straight from Vredestein automotive line, furthers wet weather traction with no negative impact on acceleration. Next, Curve Control System® shoulder technology specifically improves the tire's cornering performance.

A 120 TPI cotton/polyester casing offers a supple ride without giving up durability, and the Sportex Protection Layer® beneath the tread keeps keeps out sharp objects with minimal sacrifice in terms of weight or speed.

The Fortezza Senso is available in 700c x 23mm or 25mm sizes (23-622 or 25-622 ISO) and various colors. This version features a 120 TPI casing, and a 'Superlite' 210 TPI version is available separately. Actual weight: 225 grams (700c x 23mm). The recommended inflation pressure printed on the sidewall is 115-175 PSI, but for most applications we would not recommend running this tire at any pressure over 120 PSI.

I trust these tires !

Whether I'm making a quick paced 30 mile local run or a week long tour across the state, the Fortezza Senso hugs the corners, provides security on downhills, and rolls over the rough country roads of Tennessee. Ride these babies with confidence rain or shine !

First Impressions - Fantastic Tires!!

I generally run the 23mm Fortezza's on my bike at high pressure (125psi). The Fortezza's are a very fast tire with a tremendous amount of road feel, reasonable (but not fantastic) wear, and relatively durable. I actually loved the feel of them. With the knowledge that they were going away, I bought these Senso's 25mm. I'd been reading about how 25s added comfort without sacrificing speed. This is only a preliminary assessment as I have not put many miles on the tires, but I am delighted to say that so far I LOVE these tires. I can confirm that they have delivered a smoother ride without sacrificing an ounce of speed. If these prove to be as durable as advertised, you'll have to pry them away from my cold, dead hands...

Amazing contact and road feel.

I rode the predecessor of this tire (Tricomp) for several years and enjoyed the handling and road feel. Prior to installing my new Sensos (23C) on my Specialized Tarmac Pro I used a set of Continental Four Seasons (25C) on a hilly century. Following the century I put on the Sensos and was flabbergasted by the difference. The Sensos blew me away with their road feel and descending capability. I don't know yet about wear so cannot yet give them five stars. So far I love these tires.

Long lasting tire that provides an above average air pressure option

I have been using Vredestein Fortezza tires for 10 years on my Seven Axiom SL titanium road bike. They provide a wide range of tire pressure to suit the day and circumstance, lower pressure for easy days when buttery comfort is desirable, higher pressure when riding fast in club pacelines . I rarely have flats, and am confident of handling in either dry or wet conditions. They typically last four to five thousand miles which is my annual mileage.

Good tire

Not having used the Fortezza Senso tire yet I can't comment on it. But if the Fortezza Senso is as good or better than the Fortezza Tricomp it replaces, then it's a very good tire. I presently have the Fortezza Tricomp (23c) on my road bike and have so far accumulated 3000 miles with only one rear wheel flat tire to mention. I ride 5000 milesyr approximately and the Fortezza Tricomp on my bike replaced two sets of Michelin PRO 4 Endurance tires which are also good. However, although the Michelin Endurance tires are slightly faster than the Fortezza Tricomps, the Fortezza Tricomps seem to last longer and have a better grip in sharp turns and wet pavements. Therefore, relying on me experience with the Fortezza Tricomps, I will buy the Fortezza Senso tires when the time comes to replace them. I ride the Fortezza Tricomps at 125psi and presently they they have outlasted the Michelin Endurance tires by 800 miles and still going strong.

Wore out in three months!!!

Bought these tires and went for the slightly larger 25c hoping to extend the life of the tire as I am a big guy. In ten years of serious road cycling I have never had a tire wear out in three months. They have a great grip but no way do they last. Vredenstein claims they have good grip and fair wear... My front tire is their Tri-Comp which they discontinued. It has over two thousand miles and looks fine. I am an avid cyclist and regularly do 80-100 miles a week. After a summer, with two weeks on vacation, these tires did not hold up. Given the cost, it ain't worth it. My original wheel set lasted over two thousand miles and when I replaced them with a better wheels these tires were recommended... Other than a really good grip I am not impressed. Could have been a bad tire. Will see if the replacement holds up. If it does not... You will hear about it.

Good looking long lasting puncture resistant tire

This is great year round tire it. It's light weight durable and good for any road conditions. I live in Pa. where the winters are brutal on the roads causing large pot holes. I used to use heavier tires in the winter. But these tires handle any conditions without flatting. I bike 8000 miles a year and have tried a lot of tires over the past 40 years and found that these are the best.

Handle well but not durable... 2 flats in 1 week.

The tires perform great and handle really well except (big exception) that I've had 2 flat tires in my first 3 rides. Just started the process to try to get a replacement for what I hope is just a bad egg.

Supple ride but not very robust

Used for commuting and casual road rides.

Supple ride (like a Michelin). Rolling resistance is high.

But worst of all, the tires are very flat prone. Compared to that Specialized Roubaix Elites that they replaced with no flats over several thousand miles, I have had two flats in 200 miles. Both goat-head caused flats.

Hopefully they will wear soon.

I have used vredestein for 15 years, why get other brands?

The rolling resistance is great and the puncture resistance is exceptional. I use Fortezza Tri-comp on my race bike for the same reasons.

Great tires

Had these tires on my Trek Domane for a little over 200 miles, a little early but LOVE these, feel is great on the road great grip makes you feel even more confident on rough or slick pavement. Got them on sale at BTD, so very happy with you guys & the tires. More than likely will stay with Vredestein.

Good but are they supposed to crack?

I am a frequent rider and a heavier rider. Have been using these tires for a few years. The seem to hold up well Never had a flat. But my concern is that the red part of tire cracks very early in the life of the tire. Makes them look like they are going to fail on my next ride. I guess I keep tempting fate, but they have held up!
