Easton EA70 XL 29" Wheelset 2014

Easton EA70 XL 29" Wheelset 2014

The year you turn 20 is a magical one. 20 is the true dividing line between adolescence and adulthood, because let’s face it, when you turned 18 you were hardly ready to take on the "real world", and quite possibily may have even still been waiting for the school bell to sound. The number 20 isn’t just a magical age, it’s also the magical internal rim width of the Easton EA70 XL 29” wheels. The 20mm internal rim width puts the EA70 XL 29” wheelset happily in the middle of Easton’s All Mountain and Cross-Country rims, making it a solid set of circles for all around trail riding. Both front and rear wheels have straight pull spokes laced to Easton’s new X4 hub, which are more resilient than traditional j-bend spokes. All EA70 wheels are hand-built and acoustically tuned, ensuring they stay running true and straight for miles of smiles on the "real trail."

Nice cheap wheelset
Needed a cheep wheelset with only $300 budget. These are the lightest ones I could find and they are fairly stiff with great build quality. I would have liked tubeless and 23mm inner diameter but for the price These can't be beat.

CONS: Proprietary Spokes, Not Tubeless Ready

Stiff and quiet
I don't have a lot of miles on these yet (less than 50), but initial impressions are positive. The wheels are stiff with no feeling of flex, even through fast berms. Reasonably light. They were well packed and were true out of the box. I bought them to be a reliable trail wheel for a hard tail bike I use for back-up, training, and for bashing. These wheels certainly seem to fit the bill. They are also surprisingly quiet. My only niggle with them, is that they don't spin as freely as I would have liked. The front spins ok, but the back has a bit more drag than should be the case. Maybe more miles will loosen them up, but we'll see. If not, I'll check the freewheel for adequate grease and such. I'm running these with tubes, for now. The instructions say not to convert to tubeless, but I don't see why it can't be done. I'll likely give tubeless a try, at some point. I would not pay full price for these. But at the sale price I paid, I think they are a very good value.

PROS: Attractive Design, Easy To Install
