Great tires

Picked these up on sale after a friend suggested them. I'm running these on my Cervelo P2C for training and racing and have no complaints at all. Two 70.3 races, 2 sprints, and 2 months of training and they are holding up great. 0 flats even though there is a lot of junk on the roads where I train. Will definitely buy these again.

Incredible tire. Ride at 140psi and rolls like a rocket. Smooth and great in corners. WOW

I like the ease on mounting the tire. The high psi rating. The price was nowhere else to be found. I have a couple of hundred miles on them and this is the tire I would absolutely recommend. I have used Vredestein tires many times. I do triathlons and road ride as well. Nothing else for me.

This is a terrific, reliable, supple, and long-lasting tire.

I have used this tire and its predecessors for years. I would not even bother to look for another. Resists cutting,

excellent handling, and long lasting. When discounted by Biketires Direct, this is the best bargain in all of cycling.

Great Tire so far - at a good price

Put it on - no issues, aired it up, let out most of the air and bounced the tire around (my method to make sure the tube is not pinched or creased somewhere inside the rim. Aired it up again. I have been riding it since without problems. I have ridden on wet and dry surfaces, all is good!

Love,Love-LOVE these tires!!

Been riding Vredestein Fortezza Tricomps for probably ten years. They are a great training and racing tires.

I love them because I like a high psi tire. They ride well, and wear well.

My first choice in tires by a long shot.

Best tyre i have found

I have used this tyre as an all weather tyre and have had no issues or problems with it all. Very resistant to punctures i love the longevity and value for money. In my opinion its a great investment and performs better than many more expensive brands.

I loved the orange on orange color scheme even tbough its tough to find these days.

Vredestein Fortezza TriComp

I am never disappointed with these tires. I use them on both my rainbike and race bike year round. For a clincher they will take a very high PSI. The rubber is also very responsive on cornering. Solid buy all the way around!

Color wall separated from black very quickly.

These tires felt nice in the early miles but halfway through their expected life span the red color sidewalls started cracking and separating from the black of the tires all the way around horribly. I can't ride these anymore for fear of having a complete blowout on one or both while being 50 miles from home and breeding to hitch a ride home. Terrible purchase.

Like New After 4000 mi on Fixed Gear Bike

PRO I purchased a pair of these almost 4 years ago, and mounted them on a fixed gear bike, on wheels I hand-built myself. I've put approximately 4000 miles on them. The rear gets a lot abuse on a fixed gear bike and both tires are still in fairly good shape. I inspect them after each ride and remove any embedded sharp objects, and have not had any flats. Although they are rated up to 145 psi, I inflate them to 125 psi. I don't brake much, and the wheels have stayed true.

CON When cornering, they are not as stable and don't grab the pavement as well as other brands I have used (which ride like sew-up tires), but those only last 800-1000 miles and they're more expensive.

Fortezza TriComp

Soft tire, Easy to mount, Good rolling resistance, Although there is a minimum tire inflation of 100psi on the sidewall of the tire? I am a 170 pd rider and using 700x25c tire! Pretty comfortable 100psi!!

Great ride after all these years

I've been riding Fortezza TriComps for a couple decades it seems. At times I venture off and try other brands but I keep coming back because I've always loved the round profile and the cornering and they've always been pretty rugged. While I raced on them for a few years in my relative youth, I now I pretty much race Strava. No matter, I love the Vredesteins!

Reasonable commuter tire

I use a chromoly road bike to commute 20 miles round trip a day and want reasonably durable tires that don't cost too much. As a commuter, it isn't that easy to judge rolling resistance and I'm not taking corners at high speed, testing out whether the tires grip the road nicely, but my impression is that these tires do a reasonable job of such things.

The one strange thing about Vredestein tires is that they claim to tolerate and also require high pressure - in my view, unbelievable high. The sidewall of this tire says that the minimum PSI is 115 (!) and the not-to-exceed pressure is 160 !! (This is for the 25 mm size.) Once, as an experiment, I put in more than 100 PSI but the tires transferred all the road nice in a rather unpleasant way. I usually inflate these to about 85 PSI and it's fine.

I would guess I get around 3000 miles out of the back tire for one of these, which seems good.

BTD occasionally has these on special at a very good price, when they are a great value.

Keep coming back to the TriComp

I have been riding this tire for at least the last 5 years. It delivers everything. Comfort, durability and quick rolling. I have no idea why you would need to spend anymore money on a tire. When it on sale here at BTD I Stock up.

My all time favorite tire

I used Fortezza TriComps for years and was disappointed when they replaced it with the Senso a few years ago. I tried the Senso and the Gran Fondo, but they rode nothing like the TriComps. The TriComps are silky smooth, steer well, have excellent flat protection and are outstanding in the rain. I found the Senso to be a step down in all of those qualities so I was ecstatic when they brought the TriComps back. I typically get 3000-3200 miles out of a front and then I move it to the back, where I can often get another 1000 miles before I decide to retire it. I use the 25mm tires on HED Belgium C2 rims and they measure about 27.5mm in that scenario. Absolutely the best!
