SOMA Smoothie HP – Endurance Road Disc Frameset $1,149.99

The Smoothie HP is the “high protein” version of SOMA’s Smoothie road frame that was part of their line for almost 20 years. Extra large diameter, thin-wall Tange Prestige chromoly coupled with modern touches like thru-axles and compact geometry give this frame increased power transfer and road feel while still delivering a composed and plush ride at all speeds. The re-designed geometry combines a comfortable higher stack with a shorter wheelbase that rewards skillful riders.

Frame Features:

  • Tange Prestige heat-treated double butted CrMo steel
  • Extra oversized down tube and chainstays for greater pedaling stiffness
  • Ovalized top tube for increased lateral stiffness and vertical compliance
  •  Size specific tubing, larger downtubes on larger sized frames
  •  Comfortable high stack matched with a tighter wheelbase than the typical big brand endurance road frame
  •  Replaceable modular dropouts (12 x 142mm bolt-on thru-axle, fits flat mount disc brake)
  •  BSA Threaded bottom bracket shell
  •  Rear rack/fender mounts
  •  Max tire size: 700x32c with fenders
  •  Two water bottle boss sets
  •  6 sizes: 48, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60
  •  In Candy Apple Red
