The Soma Fabrications Supple Vitesse EX is a fast and light clincher with a supple tubeless-ready casing. Its durable Extra Wear casing not only reduces rotational weight, but also reduces its rolling resistance and does an amazing job at smoothing out the road. The Supple Vitesse features a checkerboard tread pattern that rolls fast over asphalt, regardless of its condition, and holds its own once the asphalt ends. The high mileage carbon rubber compound wears slowly, and is durable enough to stand up to the most jagged chip-sealed roads.
- 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.)
