This is the only carbon clincher wheel from Easton and the EC70 wheel is suitable for all-round road racing, giving a lighter and stiffer performance than the aluminium version.
Carbon is used within the aluminium next to the spoke nipples to strengthen the wheel and to allow greater tension. This also means these wheels are suitable for heavier, more powerful riders.
It is a very versatile wheel which is fast and light, while having an intermediate rim profile of 38 mm, which gives the Easton EC70 a mix of good aero performance for longer faster rides combines with lightness for ascents and consistency and stability for descents.
They also seem to stay true even after considerable mileage and are also quite comfortable over longer distances.
