Don't slip

Vredestein created their Fortezza Senso All Weather Road Tire with top end, race day performance in mind. With exceptional grip under wet conditions, it is a go-to for early season criterium racing. 

Just as with previous versions of their top of the line tires, Vredestein constructed the Senso All Weather with its proven TriComp rubber compound. This proprietary compound uses three different densities of rubber to maximize grip and minimize rolling resistance. The All Weather also takes advantage of Vredestein's experience with automotive tires by borrowing their AWS rubber technology for increased wet weather traction. For improved durability and ride quality, this race tire also incorporates the Curve Control System. Finally, to increase puncture resistance, a layer of polyamide was added under the center tread —this increases protection without weighing the tire down.

The Vredestein Fortezza Senso All Weather Road Tire is available in two sizes 700c x 23, and 700c x 25. It comes in four color choices: Anthracite/red, Anthracite/blue, Anthracite/anthracite, and Anthracite/white.

  • Tri-Comp rubber
  • Polyamide puncture resistance

Winter Trainer

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Perfect tire for fall/winter training. No flats yet after 800 miles (knock on wood). Not exactly the lightest or most supple tire out there, but that's not it's bread and better. Loved them on rougher pavement or gravel roads for a durable stability that's not too harsh or hard feeling. Reliable, smooth and relatively inexpensive=great training tire.


Feels quick and durable.

Rode the Honolulu Century Bike (100 mile course) on flat tires at all! Passed by many others with flats and it was tough conditions with gusty winds and ponding water from heavy rains. Used Conti Race 28 tubes making a light but dependable combination.
Now my 1st choice for tires.

Probably becoming my favorite tire

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

These may become my favorite tire after trying out the Vittoria Rubino Pro III Slicks, Michelin Pro4 Service Course, Continental GP4000 SII, and Veloflex Open Corsa tires.

I bought these in 700x25 sizes. Mounted on my 23mm rim, they measure about 27mm wide brand new, just a tad narrower compared to the GP4000 SII at 28mm.

Things I like:

- Great balance of road feel, puncture protection, and durability (mileage).

- Availability in different colors on both 700x23 and 700x25 (if that's your thing)

- Good handling in inclement weather and bad roads

I've managed to get about 4,200 miles on the front tire and 3600 miles on the rear tire -- the most I've managed to get out of the different tires I've tried. I decided to replace them preemptively without pushing it. There was some squaring and a lot of nicks, cuts, and bruising on the tread with some squaring, but nothing significant like significant wear of the material.

I'd definitely buy these again if they go on sale. They're a tad expensive at full retail of over $70, but at $30 they're a great deal.

Responded on

Hi Gino: Thanks for the great review. You probably already do this, but try rotating your tires every 1,000 miles or so, and you'll get even more miles out these (and other) tires.

I personally would not ever put a used rear tyre on a front wheel- used front tyre on rear wheel, yes, then discard the old rear tyre, replace front tyre with new. Front tyre failure can have nasty consequences,especially on a fast descent. Hey Gino, some reviewer reckons the Senso has terrible rolling resistance,but what can you expect from a winter tyre eh?
