Good all year round tire for training and racing

I bought this being fed up with the lack of consistency from another well-known brand, some were fine, some lasted just a few rides. Mounted last August on a rear Mavic Cosmic (alu), not without the expected high level of sweat and tears, as these rims are extremely tight; The Vredestein life started with an unfortunate big puncture on the first ride, which quickly sealed (Cafelatex vitamin C was the missing ingredient to make tubeless a robust puncture free experience). Apart from this first puncture the tire has performed very well over the winter, on wet and dirty Cambridgeshire roads, and still going well now in June (about 5000Kms). I only had another big puncture which also sealed quickly and I repairing with a plug just to avoid unnecessary risks. I expect to be able to do at least another 1500Kms before I have to replace it. Performance was so good that I also installed this tire on my racing carbon wheels, pain-free experience compare to the Mavic. No racing this year, but a few outings with it and performance is excellent. Tires are grippy and give a lot of confidence on corners under wet conditions. I can't comment on rolling resistance, but they seem to be as good as other well known brand. I have not noticed any drop on my avg speed (which in any case depends more on my level of fitness and external conditions than the tire itself). Highly recommended, this is my tubeless tire of choice for all year round training and racing. Only con is that I still find tubeless tires too expensive. I don't see the reason for that.

Pros

  • Grippy
  • reliable
  • puncture resistance
  • durability

Cons

  • Expensive

Great tyres, and tubeless

I love the ride tubeless gives, but I didn’t love the endless Schwalbe Pro Ones I had to buy. They were so prone to puncture, hopeless in winter, always short lived. Some of the guys in the club were raving about Vredestein Fortezza All Weather tyres. It wasn't clear if the Senso TLR would be as tough, but I took the risk. After four months no punctures and great performance!!! The best of all worlds.

Pros

  • Tough
  • No punctures (yet)
  • Great performance
  • Price is ok

Cons

  • None

Prijs kwaliteits topper

Mooi design , in tegenstelling tot andere tubeless banden vrij makkelijk te monteren. Rijcomfort is in orde , wel iets meer rolweerstand dan bv de continental 5000.

Pros

  • Prijs
  • Montage
  • Duurzaamheid

Cons

  • rolweerstand

Mooi alternatief voor Schwalbe Pro One

Wilde even snel een tubeless bandje om mijn Pro One te vervangen, die een groot lek had. Hoewel mijn Pro Ones al 6000km mee waren gegaan, wilde ik toch iets anders proberen. Al was ik toch wel content met de Pro Ones. Voor mijn tubeless tijdperk veel met de Vredestein Fortezza gereden. Inmiddels een paar 100km ermee gereden als voorband. (Pro One van voorwiel ging naar achterwiel). Best content met de Vredestein Fortezza. Ze maken wel een typisch geluidje. Mijn Pro Ones waren stiller, evenals mijn Mavic Yksion UST en Maxxis Padrone TR's die ik om mijn ander fiets rijd en heb gereden. Toch lijkt de Vredestein Fortezza Tubeless ready niet langzamer te zijn. En hebben ze goed grip. Afgelopen week voor het eerst mee gekoerst en dat voelde best ok.

Pros

  • Rolweerstand
  • Grip
  • Nederlands merk

Cons

  • Loge "Tubeless Ready" te groot
  • Valt een fractie smaller dan een Schwalbe Pro One

Goede eerste indruk

Na een lastig jaar met de Schwalbe one PRO [TUBELESS gebruikt] overgestapt op de Vredestein. Het aanbod in de NL webshops is beperkt. Maar bij Mantel valt tenminste iets te kiezen (super winkel). MONTAGE De TUBELESS montage is wel wat lastiger dan de Schwalbe. Ik weet dat dit per velg anders is, maar het verschil is groot. Waar bij Schwalbe de voetpomp volstaat moest ik bij Vredestein meer m'n best doen. Ik gebruik dan 1 CO2 patroon voor twee banden. Ik geef een eerste harde stoot lucht en pomp daarna bij met de voetpomp. Daarna (HEEL BELANGRIJK) laat je de hele band weer helemaal leeg lopen, want CO2 heeft een negatief effect op de Latex die je nu gaat toevoegen. (ik voeg die dus pas NA dat de kraal van de band zich gezet heeft in de velg. RIJDEN De banden rollen werkelijk uitstekend [wederom TUBELESS gebruikt]. Zeer goede grip en prima rolweerstand (ik weeg 88kg en rij met 7 bar) Mijn verwachting is dan ook dat het geen kilometer vreters zijn. Maar ja: daar hou ik van. snel en veel grip dan maar elk jaar (4500km) nieuwe. (Ja ja: de conti's 4000II gaan veeeel langer mee, maar dat vind ik zo'n campingband voor ANWB leden, die op een fiets van 4000€ met piepende ketting rijden, maar thats just me.)

Pros

  • Rij eigenschappen
  • lage rolweerstand
  • veel grip
  • mooie looks

Cons

  • lastige montage
