700c, 27-Inch & 650c
Find the road less travelled on the new EA70 AX. Joining forces with the EA70 and EC70 AX Bar in our AX adventure road line, the new EA70 AX wheel has the durability to withstand trail riding but is translated to drop bar applications with center lock hubs and 11-speed road compatibility. From bikepacking adventures loaded with gear, to washboarded gravel descents with only your wheels and tires providing the compliance, we have you covered. The welded tubeless ready rim boasts a generous 24mm internal rim width that increased tire volume and gives an optimal tire profile for 35 to 50C tires. It’s the perfect wheel to round out any adventure drop bar build.
Our popular mid-level EA70 SL wheelset is now complemented with a new EA70 SL Disc wheelset to meet the growing demand for road and cyclocross disc wheels. Centered around our battle tested X5 mountain hub from the popular Heist wheelset we created the X5 CL hub, because Center Lock has seen strong adoption on the road. This wheelset uses double butted spokes to save weight and is finished with a deep 27mm rim for enhanced wheel stiffness and power transfer. A wide 19mm internal rim width insures optimal tire profile even for wider gravel and CX tires. The wheelset come tubeless ready with tape and valves installed and is available in all axle configurations.
The EC70 AX wheels connect EC70 carbon rims to our proven X5CL hub with 28 3x double butted Sapim straight pull spokes. End cap and axle components are available for all major industry standards. Wide, 24mm internal rims are optimized for gravel tires 35mm and larger, giving you a more confident tire stance for control on the ground during your expansive adventure rides, single track forays and unrelenting gravel races. Our Easton Overland team and SDG Muscle Monster team riders have put these wheels to the test, racing prototypes at DK200, with Amity Rockwell taking the DK Queen title and Amanda Nauman finishing 6th, while at Lost and Found 2019 Michael Van Den Ham came in 4th and Craig Richey took 6th.
Talk about features! These wheels have everything anyone could ever ask for: leading aerodynamics, certified Road Tubeless compatibility without rim strips, unrivaled braking performance, outstanding durability and competitive weight. Don’t take our word for it - check out the results from our exhaustive wind tunnel testing. Riding these wheels in a 40-kilometer time trial saves a whopping 14 seconds over the next fastest wheel. Riders concerned with finishing times and power output can’t afford not to buy these groundbreaking wheels. These aren’t simply race-day only wheels, they’re built strong. Easton’s industry-leading carbon lay-up process provides smooth, consistent braking. Like every high-end wheel in the Easton line, EC90 Aero 55 wheels are entirely built by hand from start to finish and acoustically tuned. These wheels combine top-end materials, a methodical build and an advanced rim design. They are extraordinarily fast wheels that will roll true for years to come.
