Easton EA70 Wheels

Easton EA70 Wheels

This is one of Easton's most popular wheels, priced in the mid-range and available in clincher and tubular versions, with deeper rim profile on the SL clincher model.

The hubs use sealed cartridge bearings, and the cassette all alloy with three pawls and compatible with Shimano, Campagnolo and SRAM 8,9 and 10 speed drivetrains.

If its versatility that you need then this wheel will work well on climbs, descents and long-distance rides, while maintaining their integrity in terms of running true and keeping their stiffness.

All the reviews we have seen have mentioned the quality of these wheels and there appeared to be no problems or issues of any significance with them. The bearings appear to be very smooth and they are also stiffer than you might expect at this price level.
