This is the Easton EA90 XD Disc 700c Wheel. The EA90 XD was designed with one thing in mind - Cyclocross. Instead of repurposing a road or 29er mountain bike wheel, we designed the XD from the ground up specifically for the needs of the emerging generation of disc-enabled 'cross and off-road riders. This wheelset utilizes Easton's proprietary tubeless rim design that holds certified Road Tubeless™ cyclocross tyres securely at impressively low tyre pressures. The rim is wider too, at 17.5 millimeters, so it matches bigger volume 'cross tyres perfectly. But being Road Tubeless™ is only half the story, the EA90 XD also boasts six-bolt disc rotor mounts and Easton's M1 sealed cartridge bearing hubs. These wheels are light, fast and bombproof. Best of all, they rely on standard Sapim stainless steel straight-pull spokes and Easton's surprisingly simple proprietary alloy tubeless nipples, so they're easy to maintain and service. These wheels are Future Proof in that they can convert to 15ž100 (front hub) and 12ž135 & 12ž142 (rear hub); parts sold separately.
