ES stands for extra smooth, which is exactly how this Soma rides. The silky ride is achieved with Tange Prestige chromoly frame tubes that have inherent vibration absorption qualities that take the edge off rough pavement. Frame configuration is important, too, so Soma used their relaxed road sport geometry for steady handling and a comfy position. Other frame features include rack, fender, and 2 water bottle mounts. Whether you build it with 10-speed carbon components or mustache bars and down-tube shifters, you'll have great rides on the ES no matter what distance you're going.
