Product Review: Soma Everware tyre


Brakeless fixed gear riders must give tyre designers/developers sleepless nights; few styles of riding put their kit through so much abuse! The boffins at Soma seem to have hit the nail on the head with this one though. The Everware is specifically designed for the rigours of riding brakeless on the street, with around 5mm of compound along a central ridge of the tyre meaning it will outlast any other on the market. There is also something special in the compound meaning skids break away easily and controllably on any surface which gives me the confidence to ride faster than I used to on those hand made German crocodile-related tyres (you know the ones I mean ;)

Team the Everware up with a Continental GP4000 on the front and you've got a fast, light, long lasting and super-grippy combo which feels perfect, in my opinion.
Niether of the tyres mentioned are cheap but they will outlast their competitors 3 or 4 times over, so it's a wise investment!
