Tires I rode this year: Vredestein Fortezza TriComp

 Late this year I switched off the Michelin Pro3 Race tires to the Vredestein Fortezza TriComp. I really have not put enough miles on these tires to know how they hold up, however my initial impression is they seem pretty durable. I only have a few hundred miles, maybe 300 miles on my Vredesteins but I do not notice any marks or cuts, which with the Michelins I could usually see marks and cuts within a few rides.
The Vredesteins Fortezza TriComps do seem to be durable based off my little experience with them, they are also a very hard tire. Every road vibration seems to come right up through the tire. They are rated for 175 psi I believe, however my Rolf Elan wheels can only take 120 psi. I can't imagine the feel at a higher psi. On the upside, the TriComps feel like they have a real low rolling resistance. I'll be riding these tires more over the course of the fall and winter I think.

For now I am checking out the Schwalbe Ultremos that I have on my new Guru Geneo, I'll report on these in a few weeks.
