The Tricomp is one of Vredestein's folding clincher race tires. The Slick version is simply an open tubular version of the Fortezza Quattro TriComp. Compared to the standard TriComp clincher the Slick slightly improves performance by increasing TPI and decreasing weight.
Vredestein, based in the Netherlands has been making tires for racers and touring cyclists alike, using the veritable range of weather to improve on all condition traction and wear. The TriComp Slick's Control System® increases cornering control in the both dry and wet weather. Two different rubber compounds are use in the tire. A denser one with less rolling resistance in the center with a softer compound on the sides for cornering confidence. The Sportex Protection Layer® offers a small amount of flat protection appropriate for a racing clincher.
