Team sponsors Vredestein decided to celebrate the teams great success by introducing a limited edition version of their top tyre, the Fortezza TriComp... And the in the perfect colour... PINK of course!
"This is really cool!", said Marit Huisman and Lucinda Brand. "This is really the finishing touch to our bikes and kit", all of which heavily feature the team colour Pink.
TriComp Technology: The specific tread and side wall compound guarantee the best grip and lowest rolling resistance in all weather conditions. The tread compound is highly wear-resistant and smooth running, while the softer compound across the tyre shoulder ensures optimal grip in dry conditions.
Curve Control System: The curvature of a tyre determines its steering behaviour, which is particularly important in corners. The Curve Control System ensures that the tyre keeps its curved shape longer. Combined with the unique characteristics of the TriComp technology, this allows corners to be taken at higher speed, even in wet weather.
TPI Explained: The casing of a tyre is constructed from a bead of steel wire or armid threads and a fabric with rubber on both sides. The thread density of the fabric determines the quality of the tyre. This density is expressed in TPI )Threads Per Inch). A higher TPI means lower weight, greater comfort and flexibility, and lower rolling resistance. Vredestein has tyres available with a TPI between 24 and 290.
These tyres are for racing style bikes that use clincher/hooked rims, these are the most common fitment and hook onto the rim and require an inner tube. There is a wide choice of tyres within this category and the right choice is important. Lighter tyres will accelerate quickly, but will be more prone to punctures so getting a balance is extremely important. If you require a tyre for all round use look for something with puncture protection, an average TPI(Threads Per Inch) and average weight. If you require a fast tyre and speed is the only thing that matters look for a low weight folding tyre with high TPI. If durability is your priority and speed is not so important look towards the puncture resistant tyres and consider going for a wider tyre, these will be less prone to punctures and offer a bit more comfort. For wet road conditions a triple compound or winter tyre is a good choice, these use a softer compound on the cornering surface to maximise grip.
Vredestein founded in Holland in 1908 and a company that has always focused on rubber products. In the early 1970s Vredestein began to concentrate only on tyres. This European company focusses on innovation and technology. This makes Vredestein tyres among the best available at any price.
