Review - Vredestein Fortezza Senso Xtreme Weather Clincher Road Tyres
Vredestein is one of the oldest names in tyre manufacturing; established in 1908, the Dutch firm are a specialist in road racing tyres. The Vredestein Fortezza Senso Xtreme Weather road tyres are their all-weather, all-season offering.

The Fortezza Senso Xtreme Weather tyres are designed to offer reassuring grip, great puncture protection, and long ride comfort; perfect for winter riding, or endurance riding. They achieve these three performance attributes through specific rubber compounds, tyre carcass reinforcement, and added tyre volume.

I fitted a set of Xtreme Weather tyres in July, for my #5MaratonasChallenge in the Dolomites. That probably sounds like over-kill; but the reassuring grip, and confidence inspiring handling of the 28c model, made them ideal for the mountains.

The tyres excelled in everything I threw at them. The 120TPI (thread per inch) casing provided a supple feel and added grip. The 'Full Protection' technology prevented any punctures, even on a few excursions onto gravel roads. Finally, the added volume of the 28c tyres helped to absorb road shock, and reduce fatigue over the long miles.

Overall, the Vredestein Fortezza Senso Xtreme Weather road tyres seem like a great option. In the wet, or the dry, they provide impressive performance and great longevity.

  1. I'm riding a pair of Vredestein Fortezza Senso All Weather now.
    Could get the team edition for EUR 19,- which is low for the quality tire you get.
