  • 1mm wider than before for better tire profile
  • Built with Sapim 2.0 / 1.7 / 2.0 butted spokes; 24 holes, 3x and anodized red nipples
  • Sealed cartridge bearing Easton hubs with 6 bolt rotor mount. Rear accepts Shimano-compatible 8/9/10sp cassettes
  • Claimed 1,697g / pair
  • NOTE: Sold individually! Please order one front and one rear wheel for a complete set.

Pros

  • More Ratchet Points

Cons

  • First Ride Flat

    Comments about Easton EA90 XC UST 29" Wheel '12:

    Bought these yesterday and immediately went on a 17 mile MTB. Absolutely loved them. Coming from hubs with 15 or 16 ratchet points, I'm amazed at how much easier it is to get uphill. Also incredibly easy to remount after stalling out uphill (um...a friend told me that). I went flat on ride number one but am pretty sure it was a shop issue where they did not seal or tape correctly. I will repost if that is not the case. Keep the rubber side down boys....

      I would like to buy this maker's wheel.

      Comments about Easton EA90 XC UST 29" Wheel '12:

      I am using EA90 in the race.
      This wheel has the very good balance of strength and hardness.
      Compared with the wheel of carbon, too hard touch does not carry out this.
      Compared with the wheel of carbon, the lightness and acceleration nature of a run are slightly inferior.
      However, it is the slight difference which can be noticed on the conditions.
      As for this, all actions are smooth, reactivity of a cornering is light and it is very apt to treat it.
      I think that this suits any tires.
      I would like to also use the wheel of this maker's higher rank from now on.

      When these wheels go on sale at all get them, they are a very light but strong wheel, handle trail and XC riding very easily, they also add that "Bling" factor to the bike, Completely changed the way my Biachi Kuma rides, all thumbs up here from Australia

      Great wheels

      Comments about Easton EA90 XC UST 29" Wheel '12:

      Long time user of Easton wheels. had the 26 inch XC Ones for years. Decided to go 29er. Bought a Giant XTC1 and factory wheels were ok, but heavy. Put on the Ea90 wheels and big improvement. Bike feels lighter under my feet and less of a drag when climbing. This is the biggest improvement that anyone can make on a bike. Glad to see they gave the rim a 19mm width, however I wish they could have gone up to 20mm like the less expense EA70. 2.2 size tires work great, 2.4 not so much. Was looking forward to putting two different size racing ralphs on it.

      Another winner from Easton

      Comments about Easton EA90 XC UST 29" Wheel '12:

      I've got a pair of EA90s on my tallboy. I ride it everywhere and probably a little harder than I should in races and on the trail. I needed a set of vey durable wheels but wanted them to be as light as I can afford. These fit the bill. So far they're true and look great. They're not as light as some and not as cheap as others but they are up to the task and didn't quite break the bank.
