DealerCamp 2011 – Easton Unveils Road Tubeless Wheelset EA90 RT

Bike Dealer Camp Feature Articles Wheels

Easton recently unveiled their latest wheelset the EA90 RT, the first ever road tubeless wheelset from Easton. Easton engineers recognized the opportunity to bring the improved ride quality and better corning traction to the road lineup using the same technology that’s made their UST mountain bike wheels so popular. The wheelset comes in at 1550 grams and utilizes the existing Easton R4 hubs, Sapim double butted spokes, and a 24.5mm rim depth. As with all Easton wheels, the EA90 RT is entirely hand built and acoustically tuned.

Easton uses the same double threaded spoke nipple system on the EA90 RT as they’ve used in the past on their mountain wheels. The unique system allows Easton to build a solid outer wall rim for the tubeless compatibility.
