REVIEW: Soma Everwear Tyres

By Ben Butterfield • Reviews • 20 Jan 2011

Over the years, I have tried a huge variety of tyres on my brakeless fixed gear. This has included almost all of the Continental road range, Vittoria Randonneur, Schwalbe Marathon Plus and Schwalbe Durano. Simply put, none of these have come close to the Soma Everwear in terms of durability and predictability.

Rated at 140 PSI and sporting an ultra hard compound, these are some of the fastest tyres I have ever ridden. Admittedly, they don’t grip too well in the wet but the progressive skid properties more than make up for this in my opinion.

Please don’t put one of these on the front of your bike – you will hurt yourself. In case you’re interested, I always run a 700×25 Continental Gator Skin on the front of mine because they are grippy, comfortable, and virtually immune to punctures.
