Clinchers that mellow the harsh.

The Vredestein Fortezza Tricomp Folding Tire’s overlapping casing gives racers a silky ride and excellent cornering, even at the tire’s recommended 145psi. Vredestein added a polyamide strip under the high-durometer center tread to protect it from punctures. On the edges, a softer rubber compound works with Vredestein’s Curve Control System to ensure the Fortezza Tricomp feels and grips consistently throughout turns. *Sold individually.

3,000 miles in

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was looking for something reliable. I found it in these Vred TriComps. Paired with Zipp 404s at 120 psi, these have been confident and durable. I rotated the tires a while ago (can't recall the mileage) but they are still going strong at 3,060 miles. I ride on flat Florida roads so not a lot of heavy braking for me.

No Stopping... Literally

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Once they go, they hate to slow. I have never fishtailed tires as much as these, they don't want to grab road when the brakes are active. They can be pumped up to a ridiculous 170 psi if you are into that "County Prison" feel. I prefer them at 105. Just okay for me, I'd rather roll some gatorskins.

Awesome tire that looks great!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The title says it all! The tire holds up well in all weather conditions and the orange looks fantastic with my orange/white/blue Trek 1000!

Great tire
Great Tire

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Riding at 135 psi is very fast and comfortable. I have 500 miles on the tires and still look new. I consider these tires better than Conti 4000S and Michelin Pro 4 Course.

worst tyre to put ever

I usually use continental gatorskin and change my bikes tyre in 5 min. With this tyre no way! they are the worst tyre to fit, very tight!

I've managed to mount the tyre using the following techinique:

Responded on

Actually, I have them too. They are really tight and it's a major issue because it's hard to avoid contact with the inner tube because they are so tight on my fulcrum zero's and I believe are causing the slow leaks that I'm experiencing.

Responded on

I have little trouble mounting them on both Mad Fiber and Mavic SL rims. I don't use tire levers. Just be certain to pinch the tire bead down into the channel of the rim.

It's the best clincher on the market.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've switched to other tires from time to time. I keep coming back to Fortezza Tricomps. They continue to be the best riding, best cornering, best mileage, smoothest, most puncture resistant tires I've found. I ride them at high pressure (would you believe 155 lbs.!). They maintain a nice rounded profile and I'm often asked if they're sewups. I love the way they hang in there on tight corners when downhilling, yet they seem to give so little resistance in the sprint. To me, this tire is number one!

One of the Best Tires Around!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Vred has managed to keep an icon of tire in existence all these years. The casing is far more supple than tires of its compare, they are incredibly puncture resistant for top racing tires, actually the most puncture resistant race tire I have ever ridden and are still supple and silly fast! I only ride high end tires, Vittoria Open Corsa Evo CX, Schwalbe Ultremo ZX Vectran and now One's, Conti GP 4000s and sII, Veloflex all the best but have to say this tire is truly unique amoung them as there are more supple, light, faster but not more puncture resistant and certainly not all in one tire!!

900 miles so far and no complaints

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Put 900 miles on these tires so far and can't really say anything negative about them. I'm very hesitant to put 145 psi in these, as I have had problems with tire blowouts in the past. I stick around 115 psi and that seems fine by me.

I've ridden these on dirt, gravel, sandy winter roads and knock on wood have not gotten any flats. They handle well descending. I've tried Michelins and Continentals and I would rate the Michelins 1st, Vredesteins 2nd, and Contis 3rd.

I am estimating that I will probably get between 1,500 and 2,000 miles out of these tires. I'm 6'3" and 195 lbs. The red matches the color scheme on my rig also.

Responded on

Blder, Can you tell me what TPI this tire has. Also is it a slick tire or does it have a tread pattern on the tire contact patch or shoulder?

Responded on

Howzit? They have a 120 TPI count and there is a tread on the shoulder. Center is smooth. Great tires tho.

Responded on

I find the Tricomps have a comfortable ride, secure and predictable handling, and are pretty puncture proof. Only flats I've gotten were a nail and a couple of pinch flats - no fault of the tire. I got 2,700 miles on my last set without rotating them - I recommend rotating after about 1,300 miles ot maximize wear. I also use about 115 lbs pressure in the rear, 110 in the front.

Responded on

Actually the center is not a slick as it has micro tread just the Vittoria Open Corsa Tires! They do have tread of a different type on the side for better water channeling and cornering. One of the best tires out there!
