Decent price-performance compromise makes this a contender for time trials

Another new tyre, the Fortezza SuperLite differs from its Fortezza stablemates in lacking a puncture resistant strip. This saves some weight – it’s under 200g – and makes for a fast-rolling tyre.

It came a respectable fourth in our roll-down tests, just off the podium positions held by the two Michelins and the Supersonic. Puncture resistance is understandably not great, though perhaps slightly better than the Supersonic. What the tread life will be is anybody’s guess.

Vredestein claim it’s “developed for all types of road racing” but for anything other than solo efforts you’d probably be better off with the Vredestein Fortezza TriComp (or, indeed, the Michelin Pro 2 Race). It’s rated to 174psi, which is unusually high for a 23mm clincher; heavy riders could benefit from this. The casing has 120tpi.
