These wheels are all about smooth riding dependability. The EA70 delivers lasting performance across the entire spectrum of road and cross riding. We didn’t skimp on the details. For example, the wide (17.5mm internal rim width) alloy rims change the tire’s profile and greatly enhance the ride quality. Not to mention, an improved tire profile means a better contact patch for really leaning into corners! The EA70 wheelset rolls on our V5 hubset and standard, J-bend spokes (20 front and 24 rear). This wheelset is built with even, accurate spoke tension for outstanding durability. Plus Easton V5 hubs utilize long-lasting sealed cartridge bearings and the alloy cassette body is compatible with Shimano 11-, 10- or 9-speed cassettes right out of the box.
