    Soma super everwear

    Anyone have any experience with these or the normal everwears? I cannot seem to get a 32c gatorskin and so I think im gonna go with these. Just trying to get some personal feedback on em.

    How about Gator Hardshell's, they do come in a 700x32c. They'll probably need to be ordered.

    yea sorry I meant the gator hardshells. I have had a pair of them on backorder for the past 5 months and I just blew out my rear tire so I think its time to just go with something else.

    the super everwears square out very fast and if you are gonna skid in them, they are very sticky at first (can be good or bad depending on what you like). However, if you dont mind tires that square out very quickly, they seem to last for a very long time. I used 700x25 for the super everwear and they lasted about a year.

    I ran regular everwears for a while. They hold up to skidding better than anything I've seen, but they don't offer great puncture protection. Other than thick rubber they don't have any high thread counts or hard shells, and the sidewalls can be fragile.
    If you're a skidding fanatic get them, if you just like to ride, look for something else

    This. I have one as a back tire. I do have a brake and don't skid often, but it's squared off considerably in the 700 or so miles I've ridden it. No issues with flats though...
