A proven winner.

The Vredestein Fortezza Tricomp continues to impress competitive and recreational riders alike with its blend of speed, traction and durability. The TriComp tread places a longer wearing compound in the center with low rolling resistance, while a softer compound is used in the shoulder for predictable handling in corners. Vredestein's Curve Control System® increases cornering traction in wet conditions, and the Sportex Protection Layer® keeps out sharp objects without adding too much weight.

The Fortezza Tricomp is available in 700c x 23mm or 25mm sizes (23-622 or 25-622 ISO). Actual weight: 231 grams (700c x 23mm). Recommended inflation pressure: 115-145 PSI.

I ride 8,000 miles per year and this is my go-to tire on all my road bikes. So glad they brought it back. Their line blend of speed, traction and durability is legit.

This long lasting road tire has been a favorite of mine for several years! I normally purchase the 700X23, which was out of stock, and decided to try the 700X25. Tire clearance to the bike frame is really close, but so far, so good!!

Great value. Highly underrated

I've used all the top end clincher road tires from the major brands. They each have slightly different strengths, but for overall performance and flat resistance, they're all in the same ballpark. The Tricomps are not quite as supple riding as some of the others but are fast with great traction and good flat protection. Since they are often less expensive than the other high end tires, I've used them a fair amount over the years. If you're looking for a while performance tire for a good price, I'd highly recommend these.

Houston,

These are great tires! They have great traction and durability. I am a heavier ride (190) and these tires wear much better than other brands I have ridden. Theyre great!

This is a fast tire with very steady cornering. I have about ridden about 1500 miles so far with no flats and minimal signs of wear. I have been using this tire over the years and has always been happy with the results.

Not Worth It
rating
by HNLCyclist

Lulled into buying another pair of these as I felt the price was too good to pass up. Not worth the hassle of flat repairs after only a few hundred miles. Casing is very puncture prone. Better off spending a few more bucks and getting something that will give you better service!

Nice rolling tires

I put a pair of these in 25c on my road race bike that I mostly just use for faster club rides. I've used them for rides up to a century and they're smooth rolling with ok traction. I wasn't impressed with their performance on wet pavement. Great flat protection in mixed city riding, road, urban trails, highway. Vredestein recommends high pressures in their tires,and this one's minimum pressure is the max pressure of my carbon wheel. At that pressure, 8 bars, it still rolls without too much resistance and also smooths out some road chatter.

Closet thing to a tubular tire

1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

I've ridden many a tire, both on the racing circuit and recreational trips around town, and the Vredestein Fortezza Tricomp tire is 2nd to none when it comes to performance, cornering, ease of installation and durability. There may be faster tires out there, but you will be hard pressed to find a tire that feels like a tubular, yet with some of the advantages of a premium clincher tire. Although the Fortezza Comp has been replaced with other tires in the Vredestein lineup, you can still find the Tricomp, usually at a discounted price.

Just rode a century with them yesterday. I was pleasant surprised with how nicely they roll. They corner well, too. I have not yet ridden them in wet conditions, but I expect they'll do fine.

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
rating

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 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.
