    I’ve run multiple sets of Soma’s New Xpress tires on my personal bikes over the past several years. They mount easily, last a long time, and provide predictable traction—wet or dry.They do seem to last longer than T-Servs or Paselas, and I haven’t noticed any negative effects from the New Xpress’ harder compound. Flats have been few and far between, despite my predilection for bouncing over railroad ballast, blasting through potholes, and grinding out miles over unimproved roads.These rugged tires feel plenty supple for everyday use.
