Easton EC90 XC 29er Wheelset — Ride Quality

Last updated 2011-09-04 - Send Feedback

In a word, ride quality is OUTSTANDING— fully meeting my expectations. These comments apply to both the 29er and 26" wheelsets.

  • Handling and comfort — the EC90 XC wheels are stiff enough to resist lateral cornering forces extremely well, yielding excellent handling characteristics, yet providing enough compliance for a very comfortable ride.
  • Silence — not once did I hear spoke creak or noise from the EC90 XC wheels, not even under high-wattage acceleration (500+ watts for me), or on rough downhill sections.
  • Trueness — zero signs of wheel true issues after 30,000' or so of climbing in several hundred miles, just smooth rolling as new.

In short, I can’t find anything to criticize with the Easton EC90 XC 29er wheelset, which is quite a statement, since I’m a very picky guy. Only long term use can determine whether there are issues to be aware of.

I did not test whether coyote teeth can damage the wheels.
