Soma Fab Hits the Gravel w/ New Cazadero Low Profile Knobby Tires
These renderings show a solid center tread section with ramped leading edges and progressively more aggressive knob shapes toward the edges. Soma’s philosophy is to create products for the vast majority of cycling enthusiasts, not racers specifically, and these look very much like they’d work just as well on nasty pavement as on the dirt roads we’re all dreaming off these days.
The technical drawings (sorry, can’t share those!) we’ve seen show a 41mm casing width and 43mm outer knob width when mounted to a 14.5mm internal bead width. Adjust accordingly for your own rims, but they’re calling it a 42. Closeup tread detail below…
Word is, production units will hit the States starting in July, equipped with a skinwall casing. Price, weight and other details TBD.
