Best All-Around Race Wheelset
It took Easton composites design, engineering and testing to create the first no
compromises carbon road clincher. The Easton EC90 SL Rear Carbon Clincher Wheel
offers braking performance and durability on par with traditional aluminum
clincher wheels, but with the reduced weight and enhanced stiffness that only a
carbon rim can offer.
Exclusive ThermaTec brake track treatment provides smooth, easily modulated
braking power and reduces heat build-up under heavy braking. Easton composites
engineers have created a 38mm deep carbon rim with superior impact resistance.
Unlike other carbon clinchers, the entire EC- 90SL rim is molded into its final
shape in one process, ensuring superior strength. The EC90SL is the only carbon
clincher rim to survive tests in Eastonís laboratory for impact and fatigue
resistance as well as Eastonís brake track torture test, handling temperatures
up to 500 degrees F. Every EC90SL is entirely hand-built and acoustically tuned
in Eastonís own factory.
Easton didnít always make wheels, but once they started, they knew there were a
few things that every Easton wheel would have to do: be durable, fill a specific
purpose (like work great for the demands of trail riding), meet stringent
testing standards and stay true under conditions that reduce most wheels to
something like a puddle.
In order to guarantee durability and incredible trueness, every wheel that
youíll see from Easton is 100% hand built and trued using their proprietary
acoustic method. Thatís right, Easton trained builders donít judge a wheel as
straight and round simply by watching it glide through a truing stand. No, they
listen to the tone that each spoke makes when plucked. Even tones make for a
wheel thatíll stay straight and round much longer than other methods.
