It's unusual to find a hand built wheel at an entry-level price, but the Easton EA50 is exactly that, making it a resilient wheel for training, basic racing or simply any general road riding.
Despite its price you can expect good ride quality and sufficient stiffness and responsiveness to cope with most none competitive riding, combines with the reliability and durability that you would expect from a hand built wheel.
As you might expect this wheel is a clincher. It is also available in the EA50 SL version with double butted spokes at a slightly higher price, which would be more suitable for some racing duties.
The names on this wheel are V section, 31mm deep with a surprisingly low weight of 753g on the front and 931g on the rear. Sealed cartridge bearings are used on the hubs, which is very useful on a general-purpose wheel as a shelter against the weather.
For riders who need a modestly priced racing wheel set, the SL with its double butted spokes is also worth considering.
