Review of the Soma Fabrications Supple Vitesse EX Tire:
I was looking for light, supple, fast tires at least 35mm actual width for paved and gravel pleasure riding. These tires fit all the requirements and were affordable too.
The previous tires were Challenge Paris Roubaix which measured 30-31mm on my H Plus Son Archetype rims. They have been my benchmark tire. Their limitation was poor stability on fine gravel or sand patches. Otherwise the Paris Roubaix tire was great.
The surprise with the Supple Vitesse SL was that they did everything the Roubaix did AND was better on gravel. They are really as fast, as quiet and smoother on pavement.
My rear tire has a hop caused by a narrow area or dip, but it could be the tube and I haven't done troubleshooting yet. 250 miles or so, no flats.
So far, they have surprised me in a positive way and I'd have no reservation in recommending them.

Summed up: Highly recommended if you're looking for a fat, light, fast, comfortable tire. Some seems to have hit a home run here.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the Soma Fabrications Supple Vitesse EX Tire:
I love these. They are everything I hoped they would be. Hope they hold up. I like tires that grip, feel great, and are fast. I'll give up some durability as a trade off. Sound fair?

Summed up: Fast and Supple, and Fast

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.
