Product Description

Having a light set of wheels on your XC bike isn't much good if that set can't handle the day-to-day abuse you dish out. The EC90 XC Carbon Wheels are tough enough to handle all your daily shenanigans, plus, they're the lightest XC wheelset on the market. Built using Easton's ABC (Armored...

Strengths:    ~Stiff and fast
~Creamy compliance and vibration muting
~Sub-1450g weight
~Good enough for Trail duties... as long as wheels stay planted

Weaknesses:    ~They will crack, at rear spoke bed

Bottom Line:   
After 5 years of heavy Trail use - the rear rim split apart. Luckily, it was when the bike was up on a rack. Easton's ABC is tough as advertised.... but paying nearly $2000 for a wheelset warrants a lifecycle exceeding 10+ years. Mavic wheels are pricey, but they easily go past a decade, as long as the rear freehub and pawls are serviced as prescribed.

BTW - Easton composite rims are about the priciest found ANYWHERE... at $500/installed.

Strengths:    Stiff, light, durable and super easy to set up tubeless.

Weaknesses:    Expensive! Sometimes challenging to remove beaded tire.

Bottom Line:   
I purchased a set of EC90XC wheels for my FSR-Comp 29er October 2013.

These wheels are incredible. So far, I’ve put over 1,160 miles of XC/"aggressive trail" riding on them. The rear required truing once, which a local bike shop handled for about $9.

The Easton gray rim finish is beautiful and the red accents add just enough color for a touch of eye candy!

The bottom line with a wheelset is how well it rides. These wheels are incredibly responsive, which makes avoiding a rock, root, or stick at the last split second effortless!

These wheels will look great on any bike.
