Easton EA70 XCT MTB Wheelset – QR Front & 135mm QR Rear

Finally, a durable, lightweight, UST compatible wheelset that you afford without selling the farm! Talk about trickle down technology: the EA70 XCT takes some of the best features of the more-expensive Easton tubeless mountain wheels (welded Easton aluminium rims, butted spokes, a generous 19-millimeter internal rim width and sealed cartridge bearings), all at an impressive value. Equipped with the advanced UST rim so you get to run your favourite tubeless and non-tubeless rubber. And the stealthy grey-on-black graphics will make any trail or XC bike look much meaner.

Easton EA70 XCT MTB Wheelset Specifications:

  • Wheelset Weight: 1745gr (front & rear)
  • Axle: QR Front & 135mm QR Rear
  • Rim Type: Tubeless and non-tubeless

  • External Rim Width: 24mm
  • Spokes: Double Butted, Black
  • Spoke Pattern: 24-3x

Rated 3 out of 5 by Колеса супер но со своими вывихами Легкие, бесшумные, очень легкий ход. Ну просто все СУПЕР.... до тех пор пока не лопнула спица. Ну да я вешу 100кг и люблю быстро ездить по пересеченной местности, но ведь именно для этого и предназначен МТБ. Спица лопнула в ниппеле, ее то можно заменить аналогичной, но вот ниппель это проблема. Нашел в другом интернет магазине тоже из Великобритании, и даже оплатил, но написали что спицы будут в ноябре, я говорю пришлите хоть ниппеля, и тишина. Надеюсь пайпал вернет деньги. Так что пользуйтесь CRC. И огромная просьба к CRC добавить эти несчастные ниппеля к ассортименту, иначе заднее колесо мне придется пустить на запчасти. Ну а с другой стороны, а что я хотел? Такие колеса по ТАКОЙ цене. 09 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Хорошие брендовые колеса недорого. Получил их ЕМС-ом (хотя не платил за ускоренную доставку) достаточно быстро, упакованы надёжно, спасибо CRC ! Плюс в том, что колёса уже настроены, не надо бегать по нашим чудо талантам- мастерам ) Можно спокойно установить бескамерную резину и ощутить преимущества езды на ней. Колёса лёгкие, красивые и тихие. Рекомендую! 01 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 sweet rims I have to admit, these wheels make my gt marathon carbon pro look the absolute t!ts, great value at less than £200, I paid £230! Smooth, silent rollers, I used racing ralphs front and back. 30 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!! After much procrastination I decided to pull the trigger based on only one review from Bikerumor . So I took it upon myself to see if it was true and man am I sure glad I did. My bike(2007 Ironhorse Maverick 4.5) still had the stock wheelset and this made the difference from night to day on my ride. Another thing that I decided to do and glad I did it as well was go tubeless. Based on the description of the manufacturer(Easton) you can run either clincher or UST so I "theoretically" assumed that my regular tires, Panaracer XC fire pro 2.1(Ft) and WTB Prowler Mx 2.1(Rear), would work and they have!! Using Orange Seal for the first time has also given me peace of mind as well. Although my tires "theoretically" are just reg tires they still hold some pressure after a few days but have to repump them after 3 days but that's not really a problem since I MTB 3 times a week and check pressure anyway, it's not the wheelset or Orange Seals fault. I think the best thing was buying this when CRC had the 10% discount and these Wheels came in at $315.89 USD and that in itself is CHEAP considering that they cost twice as much when they came out, if not more. I have noticed that the shipping box label for the description for the wheel had AM at the end of it so if this is a AM wheelset then the bang for the buck is there, most definitely!! So far I have ridden about 30-40 miles on them and have hit rock,roots, berms and ruts that are not that perfect on everything I have just mentioned and these wheels are still running true. Can't say anything else about them but AWESOME!! The rear wheel is also running on a new Shimano XT M770 9 Speed Cassette and the Shimano SLX M662 Shadow 9 Speed from CRC as well and so far so good :D. 09 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great wheels at an awesome price These rims look great and are solid. I really like the silent freewheel. It's nice to have the option of tube or tubeless. I've gotten to the point where I only buy parts from CRC. They have the best prices. I live in the US and get my shipments faster than when I order in the states from other shops. Keep up the good work! 05 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by silent & smooth running So smooth running light & well built wheels with the added bonus silent running no annoying CLICK CLICK Replacing my old Bontranger rhythm comp what a differences in wheels One point like the add The Easton valves are not Removable cores so got these DT Swiss Tubeless Valve http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/dt-swiss-tubeless-valve/rp-prod81463 As also Fast delivery from CRC 30 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality First of all thanks to CRC team, I received the wheels in 3 days. The wheels are light, strong and very good build quality, the hubs are great, no sound, the acceleration became mor quick and the speed is encreased. The color also is great, my bike now is something special after upgrading by Easton, Crank Brothers Cobalt3, Formula RX, Thomson Elite X4. 20 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great wheels light and strong Bought these as an upgrade for the girlfriends kona kula and what a difference they have made, along with an xt cassette, new rotors they have shifted nearly 900g when compared to the old wheels. Great quality as well. 17 June 2014

Answer: 
Yes, you can run a standard tubed system inside the EA70 if you wish. These wheels run a 19mm internal rim width, so can accept tubes and tyres from 1.5" to 2.3" width without any trouble.

need a cheap light 26 inch vbrake compatible set of of wheels.
Also, could you let me know about sizes? What is a 135/12 vs 135/10? This is for an older bike.
And does 135 mean there is spacing for 9 speeds? Will it hold an 8sp cassette?
Thanks for helping

Answers

Answer: 
These wheels are for use with disc brakes only and have no braking surface for rim brakes.

The 135mm is in relation to the hub/frame dropout spacing and the 10mm and 12mm are in relation to the axle diameter.

It would be advisable to measure your frame and fork dropouts (see here - http://i.imgur.com/TCh5KyO.jpg); which are likely 9/10mm for Quick Release wheels as listed below.

UST type

As far as I can understand some UST rims don't have spoke holes inside side or need tape (like stans) to be used tubeless but some wheels do. Does this rim need tubeless tape to work or can you just fit a UST tyre and go?

The Mavic Crosstrail for example has no spoke holes and is tubless compayible but the Crossride does have spoke holes and you need to run tape to use as a tubeless rim.

Answers

Answer: 
Unless you have a UST Specific rim you will need to use a rim strip to provide an air tight chamber (indeed, it's often good practice to use one either way). These XCT wheels are running 19mm (inside width) rims in a true UST design, with an unbroken inner wall, and so don’t technically require either tape or sealant to hold air.

No, as standard these Easton wheels run a Shimano/SRAM multi-speed (8/9/10sp) freehub body. Easton have produced an XD Driver for their wheels (M1-121, M1-221, M1-321, and M1-322 hubs only) which is available directly from them.

Compatibility

Will the front wheel fit a 9mm open drop-out fork? Does it come with a 5mm or 9mm QR? Does the rear wheel fit a 10mm drop-out and will it take a 9 speed Shimano cassette?

Answer: 
If the fork is standard 9mm Qr then it should fit. It should be 9mm based on what I purchased. And the rear in my opinion was a stock 9mm but 10 should work as well as the Shimano casette.
