The EA90 XD was designed with one thing in mind—Cyclocross. Instead of repurposing a road or 29er mountain bike wheel, we designed the XD from the ground up specifically for the needs of the emerging generation of disc-enabled ‘cross riders. This wheelset utilizes Easton’s proprietary tubeless rim design that holds certified road tubeless Cyclocross tires securely at impressively low tire pressures. The rim is wider too, at 17.5-millimeters, so it matches bigger volume ‘cross tires perfectly.
But tubeless compatibility is only half the story, the EA90 XD also boasts six-bolt disc rotor mounts and Easton’s M1 sealed cartridge bearing hubs. These wheels are light, fast and bombproof. Best of all, they rely on standard Sapim stainless steel straightpull spokes and Easton’s surprisingly simple proprietary alloy tubeless nipples, so they’re easy to maintain and service.
