Easton introduced a 26″ XC wheelset called EA90 XC Disc this 2011. This wheelset is a product of the XC One Wheelset and the Haven Wheelset. Like the Haven, the EA90 XC 26″ wheels, which are about 90g lighter, are UST approved.
The UST logo indicates that the EA90 wheels are guaranteed tubeless compatible. Moreover, to meet the rigorous standards, the wheels feature all of the shaping and structural requirements. A UST tire can be practically seated on these wheels with just a floor pump or by hand.
New hubs were made for the 2011 Easton 26″ EA90 XC Disc Wheelset with both hubshells aluminum and anodized red machined. In the hub, the straight-pull Sapim double-butted spokes are placed in a 3-cross pattern. The front is available in 15mm thru-axle and standard quick release versions.
