These alluring alloy wheels Beg the Question: Do We Need Carbon?
Easton has upgraded their venerable EA90 SL wheels, dropping weight and increasing strength. Now, for the first time, Easton is making a tubeless-ready wheelset. This allows for durable Sapim straight-pull spokes with standard nipples, which enhances durability and reduces the need for proprietary parts.
A completely redesigned rim features a category-leading 19.5mm internal rim in a deeper and stiffer 27mm blunt-shaped rim that borrows from our aerodynamic Fantom shape. Finally, these battle-tested wheels are centered on Easton's award-winning Echo hubs. This wheelset is completely hand-built and acoustically tuned using Easton's painstaking wheel-building methods.

This is a great, strong, wheelset that I use for road bike commuting.
This is a strong wheelset that I commute with. When I first used them I used old school inflation levels and they were jarring. After I learned I didn't need as much air, they became great! With 28mm tires (caliper measured), I can ride pressures in the high 70s (I weigh 169# with a 17 1/2 # bike.
