Plus - These are folding

Though 23mm and the cheaper price is for the white/ grey. Still good for an all weather folding clincher.


The Fortezza Senso All Weather competition tyre for all weather conditions with low rolling resistance and outstanding grip in both wet and dry weather. The Curve Control System guarantees durability and an exceptional ride quality, even in corners.

TriComp Technology
The specific tread and side wall compound guarantee the best grip and lowest rolling resistance in all weather conditions. The tread compound is highly wear-resistant and smooth running, while the softer compound across the tyre shoulder ensures optimal grip in all weather conditions.

Curve Control System
The special compounds used as part of the TriComp Technology give the tyres yet an other advantage. The tread and sidewalls of the tyres wear differently, so the tyre maintains its round shape for longer. Combined with the superb grip created by TriComp Technology these tyres handle fantastically when cornering meaning you can take bends faster even in the wet.

Excellent Protection
Tightly woven polyamide layer embedded in the "central overlap" of the highly flexible casing.

TPI Explained
The casing of a tyre is constructed from a bead of armid threads and a fabric with rubber on both sides. The thread density of the fabric determines the quality of the tyre. This density is expressed in TPI (Threads Per Inch). A higher TPI means lower weight, greater comfort and flexibility, and lower rolling resistance.

About Road Race Tyres

These tyres are for racing style bikes that use clincher/hooked rims, these are the most common fitment and hook onto the rim and require an inner tube. There is a wide choice of tyres within this category and the right choice is important. Lighter tyres will accelerate quickly, but will be more prone to punctures so getting a balance is extremely important. If you require a tyre for all round use look for something with puncture protection, an average TPI(Threads Per Inch) and average weight. If you require a fast tyre and speed is the only thing that matters look for a low weight folding tyre with high TPI. If durability is your priority and speed is not so important look towards the puncture resistant tyres and consider going for a wider tyre, these will be less prone to punctures and offer a bit more comfort. For wet road conditions a triple compound or winter tyre is a good choice, these use a softer compound on the cornering surface to maximise grip.

Na, snow and ice would be more funny, also sand is not a weather type, but terain.

If i had the money is go 4 season contis, folding gators then these but you can't get gators/ contis for this price.
Contemporary thinking is (mostly) that wider roll faster and are comfier - I assume that's why there are lots of 23C tyres on sale :). These are pretty average in the rolling resistance and puncture stakes bicyclerollingresistance.com/roa…015 - I'd be tempted to go for a 25C or 28C if you've got the clearance. I've been running Gatorskins for a couple of winters and they can be sketchy when going fast in the wet (but probably any tyre is!) and only had 1 puncture in 100s of miles. 4 seasons are the way to go if you've got the budget, I just posted some wired 28C Duranos I found for under £25 a pair and also Ribble are currently doing Gatorskins in wider sizes for around £18 each I think.

Yeah, I got caught in the snow coming home from a night shift a few days ago. I didn't intend cycling very fast for obvious reasons though to be honest it wasn't really the tyres that were the problem, it was the gears, and because they were covered in snow I couldn't pick up much spead due to them slipping as you can imagine.

Be careful when turning corners though, I felt my bike slip under me when turning into the road where I live, was lucky I didn't come off as well.

Incidentally, does anyone know the difference between these and the xtremes? From the description the TPI appears to be the same and appear a little lighter, is there much difference otherwise? I'm currently using the xtremes on my bike.

I bought these on black friday deals at same price. Excellent price and a lot cheaper than equivalents from continental etc. I've been riding in wet and found them grippy. Not had any punctures so far.

The xtremes have slightly more wet grip, durability and puncture resistance. vredestein.co.uk/bic…-UK
At that price it’s worth buying a couple just to throw over lampposts.

You have plenty of money to do that
Would these be good all round training tyres for puncture resistance and a little longevity?
