Just like riding on clouds.
Going beyond the end of the road grants you breathtaking vistas and serene riding, but usually at the cost of teeth-chattering discomfort. With the Soma Fabrications Supple Vitesse EX Allroad Tire, you get cloudlike comfort and reliable traction for hard-packed dirt, gravel, or asphalt. With the nearly-bombproof Extra Wear casing, the Vitesse EX reduces rotational weight, rolling resistance, and offers ample protection from slashes, punctures, or blowouts. The durable tubeless-ready casing is supplemented by a high-mileage carbon rubber that wears slowly, yet remains durable and grippy enough to stand up to chip-sealed road and loose gravel access roads alike.
- Extra Wear casing for a long-lasting, durable tire that maintains road feel and comfort.
- All-road tread pattern designed for on or off road use on dry, rough terrain.
- Tubeless ready.
- Available with Black or Terracotta tread with tan sidewalls.
- Weight: 700c x 48mm 410g

I love these tires! I have them on my Soma Wolverine and they are the ultimate commuters. Given the size (and they fit pretty much exactly as 48mm), they are surprisingly light. I figure I would give up a lot of speed for the size but have been surprised that hasn't happened much. They do an amazing job of taking the bumps out of the ride. These tires took my Wolverine from being really good to being amazing. I sort of feel like a kid riding my bike again because it is just fun with these. I can't recommend them highly enough. (And no, I don't work for Soma.)
