I'm currently trying a set of Tufo Elites. I'm not sure if I like them or not. I was thinking of trying the Vredestein fortezza or conti sprinter. Any advice?

Sprinter vs. Giro Twix vs. Corsabiknben

I've tried Conti Sprinters, Vittoria Corsa CXs, and most recently Tufo Giro Twix. The Sprinters feel most like a clicher. They pump up hard and feel hard. They offer average puncture resistance. The Tufos ride nearly the same but are more confidence inspiring in the corners. They offer the best flat protection. The model I have include a wider tread which protects the sidewalls.

The Vitoria CXs are on a whole different level. The difference is ride quality was very noticeable for me. When tubular riders talk about supple road feel, etc. they are describing what I notice with the Corsas. OTOH, they are very thin. There wear quicker and offer the least flat protection.

Hope this helps.
