Interbike 2011: Easton introduces two new wheelsets


Easton took the lightweight UST rims of their EA90XC wheelset and paired them with the more affordable hubs used on the EA70 wheels to create a performace-oriented wheelset at a price that is within the reach of most weekend warriors. They will be available in 26 and 29-inch versions, weights are 1,620 and 1,750 grams respectively. Price is $725 for the 26-inch wheelset and $750 for the 29-inch version.

Havoc 150

The $1,000 Havoc 150 is downhill race wheelset that tips the scales at a mere 1,870 grams. It shares the same 23mm-wide UST-certified rims as the Havoc AM wheelset with 28 straight-guage spokes, instead of the 24 double-butted spokes on used on Havoc AM wheelset, with a 150mm-wide rear hub with larger bearings.
