all about the

Soma Fabrications Supple Vitesse EX 700c Tire

We are big fans of the entire Soma tire lineup. The Supple VitesseCazadero, and Shikoro remain amongst our top tire sellers each year. With the expanding all road segment, cyclists are looking for more durable tires, wider than typical widths, and reasonable weights for the entire package. The Supple Vitesse is available in both the SL casing and the EX casing. The EX gives you slightly longer wear, while the SL is the super light casing which averages approximately 20 grams lighter than then comparable EX tire. The tubular casing gives you low rolling resistance even with the all-road tread pattern that hooks up great with many various surfaces. 
  • Kevlar Bead
  • Available in 5 widths
  • Weighing between 215 grams to 380 grams
  • Made by Panaracer in Japan
Also available in the super light SL casing.

Review of the Soma Fabrications Supple Vitesse EX 700c 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 700c 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.
