Interbike 2011: Easton introduces two new wheelsets

EA70 XCT

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.
