These tires ride smooth and soft. They grip well and I am pleased with the purchase.

These tires are NICE there is nothing I can say I do not like about them. Over the years i have been through many different brands of tires over the years and A smooth ride with low rolling resistance seems to make a nice tire. Puncture resistance is also a plus.

I swear by these! They are robust, last a very long time, rarely get flats.

I swear by these! They are robust, last a very long time, rarely get flats. They seem to last between 3500 and 4000 miles depending on road surface. Pretty comfortable at about 80 psi which is fine for a 150 lb rider.

Built like a tank, somewhat light, and excellent grip

I put these on a fixed gear yesterday and immediately took them out for a spin. About halfway through my ride, I ran through a large area of glass that I was unable to avoid and not only did these not puncture, absolutely none of the glass shards embedded in the tread. In addition, I saw a bit of rain during my ride and these handled very well and cornered very well, too. Furthermore, both of my 25's were under claimed weight at 229 and 228, respectively. Admittedly, this is a very early review but just one ride was enough for me to be incredibly impressed and to consider these a top five all-around tire.

These are my go to tire for everyday riding and training. A little bit of a harsh ride because of the thread count and high pressure but they dont feel sluggish and roll forever.

O, A good training tire

I've had a few sets of these tires. The latest set has about 500 miles on them, no flats as yet. The only problem I had was how they came from the factory. Both tires, on the sidewalls, had these little nipples about 3 apart all the way around the tire. They stuck out about a 14-12 an inch. I'm no speed demon but I'm sure created drag. I finally got fed up and took a pair of finger nail clippers and cut them off

I got two tires marked way down on sale. I have used them before and was glad to find them at this price. The new ones are performing as expected, lasting and tough, even after riding on gravel roads and rough pavement.

This is my new long distance tire

I've used Vredestein Tri Comps (23 mm) on my Lemond Arrivee for several years and they are a great tire-fast and fairly durable with minimal flatting. So I bought a pair of the Grand Fondo's (25 mm)about a year and a half ago for commuting on my cross bike (20 miles each way) and they have been just what I needed. Durable (no flats despite all of the daily potholes, glass, and a mile long section on a packed, not paved, trail), and faster than the Michelon Krylions that I had on the bike before that. A perfect tire for someone with a long commute where both durability and speed is important.

Last month I took a week long, 550-mile commercial bike tour using my Trek Domane 5 series. I had a pair of 25 mm Conti GP4000's on there that were wearing down. I decided that the Grand Fondos might be perfect for the tour due to their durability and speed. The Grand Fondo's seemed just as fast as the Tri Comps, and in fact my average speed was virtually the same as with the GP4000's. The ride on the Grand Fondo's was cushier than the TriComps, but that could also be because the Domane gives a more forgiving ride than the Lemond. While I thought I was going to keep the Grand Fondos on the Domane only for the tour, they're still on there, and I really don't have any motivation to take them off.

When they are on sale, unless you are looking for a tire for racing (in which case you might want a more specifically manufactured race tire), I would not hesitate to buy these tires.

Not the same as the old tricomps

I got these on special after using the Fortezza Tricomp and the quattros. I had a horrible time putting them on the rims they are even tighter than continentals. I took the wheels in to the BTD store and they even had trouble getting them on. So far in 200 miles I've had 7 flats between the front and rear with nothing through the tire, no pinch flat just mysterious holes in the tubes in varying places.

I've ridden Vredesteins for years and will be riding them for years to come, they cannot be beat.

I'm no professional racer, and at present don't train as frequently as I'd like (fyi always check the bike scene well before you move!), but I've raced, I've commuted, and I still do ride. All of that's irrelevant really except for the fact that over the last 12 years or so of road riding, I've used a few other well-known tires - racing and training - and while many are quite good, nothing beats the durability of Vredestein - racing and training tires - and the dependability of them. These tires grip, they roll smooth, they age well (usage and hanging), they are reliably built, meaning no flaws, no millimeter off so you have to pull out the shop tire tool. Vredesteins rock and they are dependable, all. Durability cannot be beat.

Always happy with Vreds

Though I've tried almost everything out there, Vredesteins Tri Comps have always been my favorite overall tire in regards to wear and road feel. I ride a Fuji Altamira which has a very forgiving rear triangle because of the obscenely thin rear stays, and I like a tire that allows you to feel the road a little bit without having to pump to absurd PSIs. With Contis and Mich, I can sometimes mistake the plush ride for a flat tire because I'm just getting zero feedback.

Vred Tri Comps offer me just enough feedback so that it just feels right, at least for my frame and wheels. I usually run them at 95 psi in back, 90 in front. They go perfectly with my new November Rail 52s.

The Gran Fondo, apparently, is supposed to be a longer-wearing version of the already durable Tri Comp. I can't notice any difference between the ride qualities of each tire, but I'm down for some extended wear.

I bought these on special at BTD so I definitely put them in the steal category. I will be training and racing on these.

Awesome tire

I've used these tires for a couple of years now and absolutely love them. The 25C is a great size to mute harsh chip seal roads in North Texas especially at about 85 - 90 psi (I'm 155 lbs.) They're durable - I typically get about 3,000 miles out of a rear tire and I love the way they feel and handle. I've never had a flat caused by a thorn, only from pinch flats if I hit a piece of gravel head on at speed. I ride a 2009 Lynskey R330 with Fulcrum Racing 5 wheels about 7,000 miles per year. I'm retired military and ride almost daily.

My go to tires

I've been using Vredestein tires for a number of years. These tri-comp Gran Fondos are my go to tire selection that I use on a number of road bikes. They provide an excellent combination of both durability and are reasonably lightweight. The tri-comp construction has a high degree of puncture resistance so you can keep rolling rather than spending time out there fixing flats.
