With Easton's EA70 XC 29in Disc Wheelset - White, there are no shades of grey, literally. This version is White. Taken more figuratively, it's fair to say that the EA70 XC wheels are all about the business of getting you down the trail and saving you a pretty penny at the outset. Both the performance and price goals, while appearing mutually exclusive, are met in this surprising wheelset.

These EA70 XC 29" Wheels share the same tech specs as the 26" versions with the same name. The only differences are the bigger rim and longer spokes. They're light enough to feel racy on fast trails, yet wider than most other 29er cross-country rims -- wide enough to create a fuller tire profile for increased stability and traction.

The EA70 Wheelset is based on Easton's straight pull aluminum hubs. They roll on sealed cartridge bearings for durability and ease of maintenance. The hubs direct the 24 straight-pull single gauge spokes towards the rim in a three-cross pattern. While this may add a few grams over straight laced or two-cross patterns, it adds strength and stiffness to the wheels so they perform without being flexy -- especially important for 29er wheels as you may know. Along with the rim, both the hubs and spokes are Black for a subdued racy look. The 25mm wide rim is designed for use with disc brakes only and has stainless-steel eyelets on the spoke holes for strength and durability. Mounting tires up to 2.4" should be no problem for this all 'round cross-country wheel.

The Easton EA70 XC 29in Disc Wheelset have White powdercoated rims. You might notice that they're slightly heavier than the Black version -- the powdercoat adds 25 grams. They use the ISO standard 6-bolt brake rotor mount and come with two front hub options -- quick release or 15mm thru-axle. Both options include a quick release equipped rear wheel. They come with rim strips and quick release levers when applicable.
