Been riding these for years

Been riding the Fortezza's for years. No reason to switch. Reasonable price, good performance and decent wear. I usually get 1500-2000 miles on the rear tire and double that on the front.

Loved them at first, rear casing failure at 1000 miles

Wow I loved these tires at first! Smooth rolling, great grip in the corners and no flats. That is, until I had a complete failure of the rear casing after just 1000 miles. I ride mostly on chip-seal roads, which are quite harsh, especially right after the new tarmac is layed down, which was done in spring. Noticed a wobble on my ride yesterday, followed by a complete blowout. There's a hole the size of a quarter in the center of the rear tire where the casing has worn away. Toast. I guess I need a tougher, heavier tire.

Been riding these for years

Been riding on these for years. The tires are very durable and their ride is supple. Why pay more for tires that don't last or perform as good. They don't really square of like some tires wear and have been able to get a lot of mileage. They are good for at least a whole season of riding and more.

Great value and service from BTD

These are great rolling tires with wonderful grip for cornering. I inflate to 100-105 psi on 25s and they are joy to ride. The bread is very tight but laying them out in the Colorado sun for a few minutes makes it easier to install without pinching the tube.

Fantastic Tire

Great tire for running high pressure

I have 2000 miles on these tires and think i should be able to get another 1000 from the back. I love i can run more than 120psi. As riding in pot hole city, I have got more pinch flats than punctures, i havent got a single one. They seem to get cut fairly easy make sure to wipe the tire if going through debris.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
