Easton Havoc DH Wheelset

Easton Havoc DH Wheelset

Coming up with an aluminum wheel that is as light as it is durable is directly in Easton’s wheelhouse. From the Hyperlite bar to the category-leading EA90 stem, Easton has a long history of innovating in aluminum. The Havoc DH wheels rely on 32-mm wide aluminum rims, single-butted DT stainless steel spokes and brass nipples for unheard of durability. Proprietary Havoc hubs feature double row bearings on the front rotor side and rear drive side for long-haul performance. 32-mm wide rims for amazing tire shape and strength. Custom DT 2.3-2.0- mm spokes are 46% stronger than standard 2.0 spokes. Havoc front hub features double-row bearings on rotor side and 20-mm dedicated axle.

Easton Havoc DH Wheels
I bought a set of these wheels and they worked extremely well for about a season of DH racing. By the end of the season the rear hub basically self destructed. It initially started off with the free hub mechanism locking up which nearly tore the derailleur off my bike. The cause of the issue was a bearing dust seal. I removed the bearing seal to remedy the issue then shortly after the hub bearings bought the farm. The same exact thing happened with a set one of my teamates was racing... 0 for 2.

For the price this is a great set of wheels to get you through a season of DH abuse. They most likely will not last longer than that. However...this set of wheels lasted me just as long as a set of Crank Brothers Opium 3's which are about 3X the price. I think the take away is...DH racing will destroy almost all rear wheels so spend your money with that in mind...

PROS: Extremely Durable Rims, Do Not Need Trued Often, Solid Wheel For The Price

CONS: Rear Hub Junk

A good starter wheel for the money
Obviously not the best thing money can buy, but an incredible value right now with with the 63% off. At that price you will not be able to find better. These will serve as well as you them to and you shouldn't even need to consider an upgrade unless you start racing.

PROS: Attractive Design, Durable

CONS: Heavy

BEST USES: Downhill, Mountain Biking

Great Wheelset, Great Price
I installed this wheelset on my Santa Cruz V10 and not only does it look great but the wheelset is solid and durable. I am a Clydesdale ryder that rides DH in VT and NH and needed something that could handle the abuse that is typical during my sessions. The Easton Havoc DH passed with flying colors so far. Granted there are more solid, bombproof wheelsets out there but you'll have to pay 3x-4x more. These Eastons are very solid for the price. I am happy I bought this set, I will update this in the future as the season progresses if things change BUT I don't see that happening in the near future.

PROS: Attractive Design, Durable

CONS: None so far

BEST USES: Mountain Biking, Freeride, DH

deal of the decade
Dot the best wheel in the world, but the best for the price. I even bought a second set. They spin for ever and are responsive and stiff. When you step on the pedal they take right off.

PROS: Durable, Easy To Install

BEST USES: URBAN ASSULT, Mountain Biking

Arrived Broken
Wheels are good and the price was cheap but the front hub arrived broken, and after emailing Jenson USA a few weeks ago I still have not recieved a reply. 3 stars because of poor customer service, not because of the wheels.

Good price......ok wheels
2 rides at Whistler and rear wheel has huge flat spot. I checked tension on spokes each ride, but that did not help. I expected more from a wheel set that says dh on it. Have set of cheap dt swiss that held up better. Not so impressed with these eastons.

buyer beware......
If there was a Zero star that's what I would like to give this wheelset....I bought this Easton Havoc wheelset last summer and just installed them my 2014 DH build. These wheels didn't last TWO DAYS OF MILD DH/FR riding on my local trails!!!! I got two flat spots on the rear and both wheels the spoke are now PINGING..... Don't waste your money on this Easton Havoc wheelset put your $300 into another wheelset...... VERY DISAPPOINTED
