Easton EA90 XC 29" MTN Wheel 2013

If you are looking for a race-worthy wheel that can also put up with the beatings of training rides, but won’t empty your wallet, then look no further. The EA90 XC wheel is made from Easton’s EA90 aluminum, giving it an excellent strength to weight ratio, while still keeping it affordable. The EA90 XC wheel is UST ready out of the box, thanks to airtight welding (no rim strip or sealant needed!) and feature a 19mm internal rim width that lets them accommodate tires up to 2.35” wide.

Comments about Easton EA90 XC 29" MTN Wheel 2013:

Got these to pair with a Trek Cobia for XC usage. Got stationed in Korea where the whole country is basically a mountain. Upgraded to a Niner RIP9 but kept these wheels. Not only have they stood up to the all-mountain riding I do now, they have excelled. Paired with Hans Dampf tires running tubeless they take two-foot drops with ease. Have never needed to true them in over a year... still true within less than 1mm.

Not perfect though... two issues:
First: Rear hub bearings die pretty quick. Easton has remedied this with a free bearing upgrade kit if yours were made in 2012. Since then they've run perfect.
Second: They're advertised to run 2.35" tires, despite the 19mm inner width. Paired with 2.35" Hans Dampf tires (which may be closer to 2.4-2.45" they tend to have some wobble. Tried reseating and a second set from Schwalbe but no fix. Dropped to some 2.2" to test, and they run true. Something to keep in mind if you run larger tires.
