The process of building out the proper test bike for the new Easton EC70 Trail wheelset took a little more time to come together than anticipated. That said, these wheels are prepped and ready to roll aboard an all-new 2015 Santa Cruz Tallboy. To kick things off, I wanted to post a few pictures of these wheels in all their glory. While these are not tubeless-ready, I’ll initially ride them tubed and then convert them for tubeless.

Easton EC70 Trail Wheels Features:

  • Hand-laid UD carbon fiber
  • Acoustically tuned
  • Easton M1 hubs
  • SRAM XD Driver-compatible (how I’ll roll them)
  • 20mm internal rim width
  • 25.5mm external rim width
  • 24 count 3X pattern (front and rear)
  • Compatible with QR’s (front/rear), 15QR front and 142×12 rear
  • Not tubeless-ready (wha?!?)
  • Weight: 1460 grams (stated)
  • MSRP: $1850
