Easton EA90 SLX SRAM Rear Road Wheel - Closeout!There's something special about hand-built wheels. To know that every time you go out for a ride on them, somebody personally saw to the quality and functionality of the wheels during every step of their creation. And when the builder uses Easton components, you know that performance is sure to follow.
The Easton EA90 SLX SRAM Rear wheel is about as lightweight as alloy, or any wheels for that matter, get. Thanks to an innovative rim technology and the sealed R4 SL lightweight hubs, this is a wheel that was meant to literally float up mountains, and it's a great choice any day for serious mountain riding. So why chose alloy over carbon for climbing? Not only is this wheel competitively light, but you also get an alloy brake track, which is especially safe and effective for braking on high-speed descents without worrying about rim failure or overcooking a turn.
Years of obsessive refinement and careful engineering have resulted in Eason's lightest aluminum wheel set ever. At just 1398-grams for a complete set (claimed), the EA90 SLX is perfect for any ride or race that features significant changes in elevation.
