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!!

Excellent All Around Tires

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
