It took Easton composites design, engineering and testing to create the first no compromises carbon road clincher. The EC90SLc offers braking performance and durability on par with traditional aluminum clincher wheels, but with the reduced weight and enhanced stiffness that only a carbon rim can offer.
Exclusive ThermaTec brake track treatment provides smooth, easily modulated braking power and reduces heat build-up under heavy braking. Easton composites engineers have created a 38mm deep carbon rim with superior impact resistance. Unlike other carbon clinchers, the entire EC- 90SLc rim is molded into its final shape in one process, ensuring superior strength. The EC90SLc is the only carbon clincher rim to survive tests in our laboratory for impact and fatigue resistance as well as our brake track torture test, handling temperatures up to 500 degrees F. Every EC90SLc is entirely hand-built and acoustically tuned in Easton’s own factory.

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.
