This is the wheel that put Easton on the map for dependability. The EA70 delivers phenomenal performance and durability across the entire spectrum of road and cross riding. Through a proven 26-millimeter deep rim, Sapim doublebutted spokes and a blend of alloy and brass nipples, the EA70 is sexy without sacrificing substance.
By building these wheels by hand with high-quality straight-pull spokes and acoustically tuning, we’re able to achieve even, accurate spoke tension and outstanding durability. Plus Easton C3 hubs utilize long-lasting sealed cartridge bearings and the cassette body is compatible with both Shimano and SRAM, straight out of the box.

We didn’t always make wheels, but once we started, we 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 our 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 you’ll see from Easton is 100% hand built and trued using our proprietary acoustic method. That’s right, our trained builders don’t 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 that’ll stay straight and round much longer than other methods.
