Easton EA70 XCT MTN UST 26" Wheel 2012

Finally, a durable, lightweight, UST compatible wheelset that you afford without selling the farm! Talk about trickle down technology: the EA70 XCT takes some of the best features of the more-expensive Easton tubeless mountain wheels (welded Easton aluminum rims, butted spokes, a generous 19-milliemeter internal rim width and sealed cartridge bearings), all at an impressive value. Of course you can pick your poison and get the EA70 XCT in either 26- or 29-inch flavors, each is equipped with the advanced UST rim so you get to run your favorite tubeless rubber. And the stealthy grey-on-black graphics will make any trail or XC bike look much meaner.

This wheelset is available in a wide array of axle configurations—the front wheel is available in 9x100-millimeter (standard QR) or 15x100-millimeter (QR15) and rear wheel is available in 10x135-millimeter (standard QR) or 12x135- or 12x142-millimeter—ensuring that any trail rider or cross-country racer can enjoy the EA70 XCT.

    Got these for my Marin East Peak I rebuilt over the winter. They hold up to some harsh landing without issue and are very light for the price. Looks good too!

    Comments about Easton EA70 XCT MTN UST 26" Wheel '12:

    Bought in the spring, 2012. Great wheel for the price. I ain't rich so it's usually slow builds and upgrades as time goes by. I had bought a different full wheelset, but the front hub wasn't compatible with my fork, so I went with the EA70 XCT.
    This Easton wheel has been strong, lightweight and fast for what I ride, mostly singletrack here in Montana. The slick flat black/gunmetal lettering is nice, wrapped in Continental RaceKings and Hope skewers which I also gripped from Jenson, I'm happy with the direction this build is heading!
