A great all around tire. Lite and durable.
by Audiorider
Conway, Arkansas

So far, so good. For the price you get a tire that is durable enough to train on but also ready to race. These tires have a flatter center section so they don't give you as much of the initial wow factor but at the same time don't loose it like other tires do. I've only got about 500 miles on them but I've ridden some pretty bad sholders with plenty of debris and they're doing great. Anyway, glad I chose these. Nice to know that there are alternatives to the more mainstream and more expensive otions. Give these a chance and I think you'll be happysurprised.

These tires ride smooth and soft. They grip well and I am pleased with the purchase.

These tires are NICE there is nothing I can say I do not like about them. Over the years i have been through many different brands of tires over the years and A smooth ride with low rolling resistance seems to make a nice tire. Puncture resistance is also a plus.

I swear by these! They are robust, last a very long time, rarely get flats. They seem to last between 3500 and 4000 miles depending on road surface. Pretty comfortable at about 80 psi which is fine for a 150 lb rider.

Built like a tank, somewhat light, and excellent grip
by em_525

I put these on a fixed gear yesterday and immediately took them out for a spin. About halfway through my ride, I ran through a large area of glass that I was unable to avoid and not only did these not puncture, absolutely none of the glass shards embedded in the tread. In addition, I saw a bit of rain during my ride and these handled very well and cornered very well, too. Furthermore, both of my 25's were under claimed weight at 229 and 228, respectively. Admittedly, this is a very early review but just one ride was enough for me to be incredibly impressed and to consider these a top five all-around tire.

O, A good training tire

I've had a few sets of these tires. The latest set has about 500 miles on them, no flats as yet. The only problem I had was how they came from the factory. Both tires, on the sidewalls, had these little nipples about 3 apart all the way around the tire. They stuck out about a 14-12 an inch. I'm no speed demon but I'm sure created drag. I finally got fed up and took a pair of finger nail clippers and cut them off

These are my go to tire for everyday riding and training. A little bit of a harsh ride because of the thread count and high pressure but they dont feel sluggish and roll forever.

This is my new long distance tire

I've used Vredestein Tri Comps (23 mm) on my Lemond Arrivee for several years and they are a great tire-fast and fairly durable with minimal flatting. So I bought a pair of the Grand Fondo's (25 mm)about a year and a half ago for commuting on my cross bike (20 miles each way) and they have been just what I needed. Durable (no flats despite all of the daily potholes, glass, and a mile long section on a packed, not paved, trail), and faster than the Michelon Krylions that I had on the bike before that. A perfect tire for someone with a long commute where both durability and speed is important.

Last month I took a week long, 550-mile commercial bike tour using my Trek Domane 5 series. I had a pair of 25 mm Conti GP4000's on there that were wearing down. I decided that the Grand Fondos might be perfect for the tour due to their durability and speed. The Grand Fondo's seemed just as fast as the Tri Comps, and in fact my average speed was virtually the same as with the GP4000's. The ride on the Grand Fondo's was cushier than the TriComps, but that could also be because the Domane gives a more forgiving ride than the Lemond. While I thought I was going to keep the Grand Fondos on the Domane only for the tour, they're still on there, and I really don't have any motivation to take them off.

When they are on sale, unless you are looking for a tire for racing (in which case you might want a more specifically manufactured race tire), I would not hesitate to buy these tires.

I've ridden Vredesteins for years and will be riding them for years to come, they cannot be beat.
by DeepSouthCyclist

I'm no professional racer, and at present don't train as frequently as I'd like (fyi always check the bike scene well before you move!), but I've raced, I've commuted, and I still do ride. All of that's irrelevant really except for the fact that over the last 12 years or so of road riding, I've used a few other well-known tires - racing and training - and while many are quite good, nothing beats the durability of Vredestein - racing and training tires - and the dependability of them. These tires grip, they roll smooth, they age well (usage and hanging), they are reliably built, meaning no flaws, no millimeter off so you have to pull out the shop tire tool. Vredesteins rock and they are dependable, all. Durability cannot be beat.

I put these on to replace comp tires on a Cannondale Synapse that I thought was way too slow, and the bike immediately felt better on climbs. Combined with the improved traction and flat protection, for the price, for me they can't be beat.

My go to tires

I've been using Vredestein tires for a number of years. These tri-comp Gran Fondos are my go to tire selection that I use on a number of road bikes. They provide an excellent combination of both durability and are reasonably lightweight. The tri-comp construction has a high degree of puncture resistance so you can keep rolling rather than spending time out there fixing flats.
