Lightweight and durability just became close friends
Lightweight racing tyres offer many advantages, such as more speed, grip and comfort, and lower rolling resistance. However, a well-known downside of light tyres is an increased risk of punctures due to the economising on the anti-puncture material. Vredestein’s developers, therefore, set themselves the task of making a lightweight, durable high-performance road tyre with solid puncture protection.

Apollo Vredestein showcased a prototype of its Vredestein Fortezza Flower Power, made of rubber from dandelions, at the Eurobike exhibition in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
Check your tyre pressure
It is crucial that you regularly check the tyre pressure of your bicycle. Vredestein tyres are light to use and offer complete comfort at the right pressure, while low pressure increases the chance of punctures and makes tyres wear more quickly. This is why we suggest checking your tyre pressure, indicated on the sidewall of our tyres, once a month.
