This is the top range of alloy clincher wheels from Easton for use in road racing, including specific Aero wheels for time trials, triathlons, and group rides.
Starting with the Easton EA90 SLX, this is a wheel for all round road racing and training and is the lightest of these models, therefore making it ideal for climbing and sprinting.
For those riders who might need a somewhat stronger wheel, the EA90 SL is more appropriate, as it incorporates extra spokes (24 front/28 rear) which give it extra lateral stiffness and durability for aggressive use.
If you need an Aero wheel for consistent high speeds, then the Easton EA90 Aero wheel with a rim depth of 28mm might fit the bill, being light and fast and stiff. Also in the running would be the EA90 TT which has a slightly deeper room at 32 mm and a specially designed aerodynamic front hub.
