    Superiore ride quality and baller looks

    After being a fan of Corsa's for quite a few years, I decided to try the Senso Superiore rubber in 28mm Tan flavor and have been impressed. Had used Vredestein tires before and they impressed me, so figured these would be even better. Since tires are an important part of your bike, I have no problem buying good rubber. And these deliver excellent fast smooth ride. So far, I have ridden at least 800+ fairly fast miles on them, ride mostly in dry conditions, and happily report no punctures, or any problems. I usually run them at 65-70psi on 25mm wide rims. They don't feel sluggish at all and roll great. Didn't have any issue mounting either, inflated and seated easily. And they look awesome!! I have ridden these on wet and dry roads, gravel, over glass, sharp gravel, and they've held up fine so there must be something to their SPL protection. I corner aggressively and the transition to corners is smooth and predictable. Going down mountain passes/descents over 50mph, they roll smoothly and corner great. Both are wearing better than Corsas at this mileage. Also keep in mind, these are 320tpi casing tires, so performance is paramount over durability. Get them on sale and enjoy some smooth fast rolling race/training tires. I definitely would buy another set.

    Just As Good As Specialized Turbo Cottons

    Soft and fast. Lasts much longer than Turbo Cotton tires.

    Well made 28mm tires

    Vredestein makes a superior tire, I've riden on their 23mm tires for a decade without a puncture. These 28mm tires are very comfortable and handle well in the downhill curves. Not cheap, but worth it. I highly recommend them.

    No slow in your roll

    The Vredestein Fortezza Senso Superiore Road Tire is a legitimate upgrade to my current tires. I went with the 28mm and found greater ride comfort without and speed reduction.

    Awesome Performance Tire

    Stunningly fast rolling, easy riding, great turning tire. Just a wonderful ride. Reasonable durability, over 3,000 miles. Modest flat resistance (only two in 3,000 miles) If you like a performance ride, this is the tire for you. Downsides: A bit pricey, but so are many others. Also, sometimes hard to find.
