StarStarStarStarStar Go to tire for commuting

by Etienne of Memphis
Product: Soma Shikoro K Tire - 700 x 42 Black/Brown
Ownership: one year
Tech Knowledge: high


Easy to fit on Velocity Dyad and Chukker rims (on a Soma Saga frame) without levers. Smooth ride as compared to previous firm Schwalbe Marathons (38 cm), with near equal puncture protection through rural and industrial areas. The difference in ride feel just blows me away. One ride and I was hooked on the Shikoros. Just so cushy feeling, and still stable in corners. Only one puncture from a small wire in over a year, and tire was easy to remove and replace without levers, which also makes it easy to rotate tires. Gum wall look is a nice visual touch.


Agree with other reviews about labels peeling off, although it appears to be more like the label transfer sheet was left behind. Have to assume purposely done for shipping protection, since present on both tires. I just yanked them all the way off with the Shikoro labeling still mostly intact. Biggest con is price when I can order Marathons for nearly half the price, but the ride feel makes up for it, and they are much less than comparable Rene Herse offerings.

Other Thoughts

Most I have ever spent on a tire, but worth it!

Seem armored like a Turtle...Look very nice...Lighter,(140 grams each), than the Panaracer Pasela PT Wire Bead ones I removed.


The "SOMA SHIKORO...Blah-Blah-Blah",decals,,came peeling off. But,I remove all Decals from parts anyway.

StarStarStarStarStar Significantly narrower than stated

by Don H. of Sacramento, CA
Product: Soma Shikoro K Tire - 700 x 42 Black/Brown
Ownership: less than a week
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high


Easily installed, nice ride , Glad that someone makes wider tires


On my rim 700x42 measured 37mm not 42.

Other Thoughts

I had read that they run narrower than stated. Was hoping not so much narrower. Was hoping they were going to measure out at around 40mm. Actually narrower than the schwalbe 700x38 that I was replacing. Kind of a bummer when they do this but Not the end of the world.
