Where 'race-ready' meets reliability.

The Gran Fondo Tricomp is built to impress both competitive and recreational riders alike, thanks to a blend of speed, traction and durability. Vredestein's proven 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 Gran Fondo Tricomp is available in 700c x 23mm (23-622 ISO) and 700c x 25mm (25-622 ISO). Actual weight: 226 grams (700c x 23mm). Recommended inflation pressure: 115-145 PSI.

I was surprised at how good these are for the price. Very classy, roll well, good road feel and good cornering grip, good wear so far. Overall a big improvement on the tires that came with my bike current bike.

They're on the large size for 25mm tires, noticeably bigger than the Specialized Roubaix Pro tires I replaced with them, though they're the same nominal size. When fully inflated, I need to loosen the brake adjustment to get the wheels on and off with these. With the Specialized tires, the brake release was enough.

I as able to roll these tires on rims that are usually difficult installing new tires. I only used them for one ride so far (95 miles on a very windy day). There was debris on the road from the wind, and I had no issues. I checked the tires when I finished the ride, and I didn't find any cuts.

I ride 40 miles a day. I have about 1000 miles on these tires. No flats, but the tires feel sluggish to me. One thing I'd like to point out is maximum tire pressure. The specs on the website say 145psi. But the sidewalls say minimum of 115psi and maximum of 175psi. I've noticed that running the tires at 135psi, I lose contact with the road now and then. I would say this is a fast touring tire but not a fast training tire.

best value for lightish clinchers

Relatively light, low RR, good flat resistance, and great grip while cornering (even when wet). These have become my go-to commutetraining tire and I buy them in quantity when they go on sale. I typically get 3-4K out of the front and a touch less in back - and I ride hard. I can think of only one clincher that I prefer and it sells for about $45 on sale.

These tires might be good on decent blacktop but we don't have that in the Boston area. I need at least a 28c tire, especially in the rear. Just today I blew out a brand new 25c rear tire on some rough pave. If they made a 28 or even a 32 for my cyclocross, I might be interested. I just don't see how you can name them Gran fondo and not make sizes that can accommodate rough roads and hardpack.

This is now my tire of choice. Road bike, tri bike, it's my new go-to tire.

I have had the same or better flat protection and performance from these tires as I get from Conti GP4000S. They don't wear super long miles but seem adequate to me. I buy these exclusively now in 700x23 for my tri bike and 700x25 for my road bike. I have been through horrible glass in the shoulder and recently had an 8 mile section of gravel road on a long ride and no problems. No slices or flats.

I've been using 23's ever since I started to do more Road versus Mtn. I mainly use Michelin Pro4 for racing and Schwalbes Ultremo for training and long rides. I was curious about the 25s ever since I read an article contrasting the 2 sizes. I started to shop for it and found the Vredstein at Western Bike Works with a great deal on it. The effect was immediately noticeable. Physically, its huge. The ride was more forgiving and ultimately comfortable on long rides. The tires also gave confidence in handling fast and sharp cornering. The only con with this tire is it does not fit my other bike frame. I've questioned the company however they're also dumbfounded as I am.

Vredestein Gran Fondo TriComp tires are triple-good.

The Vredestein tires have been a great step-up for my bike. I am extremely satisfied. So I say these tires are triple good for these reasons.

1 good is - the high TPI count - very supply and the road feel is great.

2 good is - low rolling resistance is very low.

3 good is - puncture protection with low rolling resistance.

My previous tires were, Specialized Armodillo and Performance Pro Plus.

I have rode about 300 miles so far on these tires including one full Century. I am so pleased how my bike feels I purchased a backup set on the last good sell at Western.

I was thinking of making the switch to 25mm tires on my carbon race wheels...but could not find a tire at a price point that made it worth the change...then I came upon these bad boys...I am hooked. These are awesome tires and have used them for training and for racing....Vredestein has won me over! I am grabbing another pair to be ready for next season.

I had never heard of this model before, but I have been happy with previous tricomps and the price was great. I have to say they are every bit as good as the standard tricomp. Lightweight, but very durable and fast. I've only got a few hundred miles on them so far, but very little sign of wear, not cuts, and no flats. Traction is very good even in the wet.

I'd definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a high performance road clincher, whether for racing, spirited club riding, or training.
