"Having tried most manufacturers top road tyres I have finally settled on the Fortezza TriComp Folding Tyre from Vredestein.
This tyre is reasonably light, even the 25c size I use is relatively lightweight, and performs exceptionally well in all areas that a tyre needs to. The grip is great in all conditions and they're fast. Durability is excellent - I get more mileage from these tyres than any other but to me they still perform as good as the "faster tyres" but without the compromises. The tyres are used all year round and have had only one puncture in nearly two years!! But best of all, and why I won't buy any other tyre from now, is they're are so comfortable. This level of comfort in my opinion totally justifies the price - you get what you pay for and in this case a top quality all round tyre.
"
Pros: Durable, Comfortable, High Quality

Any good as a winter tyre

I am looking to put some tyres with a better grip on my Gant Defy 1. I will probably go for 25mm. I have read various reviews and have a number of choices. These tyres seem to come out as having a lot of grip, which is my main concern.

Do they grip well in the wet?
Would you get these, Gators or Conti 4 seasons?
I use the Fortezza TriComp all year round and consider them a good tyre for the winter. They grip well in the wet. I've used these and both the Conti Gatorskins and 4 Seasons and prefer these as, in my opinion, they adhere to the road better, they're more comfortable and just as puncture resistant - one puncture in two years and that wasn't in the winter!!
