Is it a wheel set or just one back or front...

Is it a wheel set or just one back or front wheel for $549,?

Responded on

It's a single wheel and right now, it looks like they're out of the front. If they were both available, it would be a little more obvious as they would both be listed separately in the drop down menu.

Smoother and lighter than my stock wheel

Although the wheel came with the wrong freewheel for my Shimano 105 Cassette, Easton was great in replacing the freewheel for free when my bike shop requested for a switch. The ride is great and it feels a lot more stable compared to the stock wheel I got with my Cannondale frame (ie. the Shimano RS10). The wheel shaved off around 1-2 pounds of weight as well.

easton EA90 SLX weight limit

I never saw a weight limit on these wheels when I purchased them. I am 170 pounds and they handle great and are plenty stiff for me and are still true after over 2000 miles. They roll great with the R4 SL ceramic bearings. I could feel the difference when I bought them and I still can when I switch between my titanium bike with regular bearings. These are for sure the best wheel for the price. I was able to get my carbon bike down to 16 pounds from 18 with these wheels and carbon bars. Someday I'll get a pair for my Ti bike, but for now I just switch them from bike to bike with minimal adjustment.

Whats the weight limit for these rims? In other words does a heavier cyclist, that can ride on the factory rims have to worry about these being more likely to bend out of shape?

Responded on

Never mind, I found out I already wrote a question like this with the other EA90 wheels, and there isn't a written weight limit.

new version

I got the wheels from bonktown pretty good price, the rear wheel has the new pre-load adjuster which use 19mm cone wrench so you can have your bearing set to the right position without getting loose, plus the ceramic bearing is very smooth I have DA7850 sl wheels I can tell these are smoother.
