Weakness:

- Only 23c size.

I've used several Vred models over the years - standard Fortezza, F. Tri-Comp, Pro tubular, Campo, Perfect Flex, S-Licks. All have been very good to excellent on various bikes & conditions.

The Quattro is no different. Typical great Vredestein road tire ride, handling, grip, low RR. But the Quattro IMO is even better than the Tri-Comp for wear and puncture resistance, given the 'Full Contact Protection'. The sidewalls hold up better to abuse than the Tri-Comp, yet the Quattro is still compliant and comfortable and you get the 3 rubber compounds like the Tri-Comp.

All that for $20-40./pair less than the TC and only about 10g. heavier per. To me it's a no brainer. I switched from the Tri-Comp to the Quattro in spring 2007 as my road clincher and haven't used another model since. No reason to.

If you do a lot of mileage for training or as a fast recreational rider and aren't concerned with blingy colors, this could be your tire.

Strength:

Over 8000km without a puncture by potholes/stones (include one off-road trip along mountain bike trial, done Audax with it). Getting noisy there after (could be tyre worn and audio alert for replacement). This could be a standard some others should maintain for their tire

Weakness:

Very slightly heavier than KENDA KALIENTE/SCHWABLE BLIZZARD NEO PRO/VITTORIA RUBINO PRO

700 X 23C used. Excellent dry and wet road adhesion. Tough sidewalls (struggled out of gap-trap in tamac without damage). 1st 5000km installed as rear tyre, before switching it to the front wheel (Panaracer tyre replacement for Vittoria Rubino Pro, a little too slippery for front tyre)

Strength:

rolling resistance
Comfort
puncture resistant
very good on wet road
long life last
not heavy

Weakness:

Maybe less precise and comfortable than original Vredestein Fortezza Tricomp.

I 'm used to Vred tires and I was curious to test their 4 seasons product "Quattro".
The tires are ugly , but their qualities are evident : low rolling resistance, comfort (even if "normal" fortezza tricomp do better) dynamic behaviour, great puncture resistance,very good on summer or winter roads.

Strength:

Best combination of durability and ride quality I've found for daily riding.

Weakness:

Better ride quality and performance can be found in lighter, less durable tires.

Very durable tread and sidewalls. OK, not the same sensation as a lighter weight race tire, but only 1 flat after 7,000 miles, and none since. Commute 24 miles/day rain/snow/shine and love to ride dirt roads. Tires are amazingly uncut after 7,500 miles of carefree riding, and still going strong.
