Anyone use Vredesteinn Fortezza's?

Yes me. By the crate....

Only high-end tyre in my experience that can deal with danish road surfaces (the winter grit has flint in it and will put holes in anything). Everything else gets cuts and punctures.

They're comfy and roll OK. Not quite up to the performance of Conti GP3000 or Corsa CXs but pretty damn close.

Schwalbe Blizzard available in all-black - and very competitively priced (£15 a pair from Cycle Promotions). I have friends who use them until they wear out and no punctures. I have 2 pairs at the moment.

Ok decided on the Vredestien Fortezza they offer the right look at a reasonable price.

Does anyone know if the Superlites are ok, or should I go for the Tri-comp Quattro. They are bit cheaper and lighter but possibly more puncture prone.
