Accumulated reviews of easton ea90 xd wheelsets

The EA90 XD was designed with one thing in mind—Cyclocross. Easton designed the XD from the ground-up to meet the needs of the emerging population of disc-enabled cross and off-road bikers. This wheelset utilizes the Easton proprietary tubeless rim design that holds certified Road Tubeless cyclocross tires securely at very low tire pressures. What follows are a number of cycling website's reviews on this product. Enjoy!

 

Bikeradar  says: "Easton isn't sitting on the sidelines of the disc cyclocross movement, offering a new EA90 XD disc and tubeless-compatible aluminum clincher wheelset for the 2012-13 season."

  • "..an excellent choice for everyday use and training."
  • "feels remarkably solid and substantial both in terms of cornering and under power."
  • "same system that's used on the company's bombproof Haven Carbon mountain bike wheelset."
  • "while the rims are fantastically durable, we'd prefer that they were wider than 22/17.5mm"

CrossBikeReview says "The Easton EA90 XD’s are a real nice looking set of wheels, simple black anodized rim, black hubs, black spokes and nipples with white graphics give the wheels a down to business understated look that works with just about any frame color scheme."

  • Durability; Decent Weight; Value



Road.cc says: "Solid, bombproof and futureproof cross/adventure or wider tyred road wheels; rear bearings are the only let-down". The EA90 XD wheels use Easton's proprietary tubeless rim design that, it says, "holds certified tubeless road and cyclo-cross tires securely at impressively low tire pressures". The rim is wider too, at 17.5mm, so it "matches bigger volume cross tires perfectly" – which is especially handy if you like to venture into rubber bigger than race legal widths, as is the gnarmac trend these days. Fatter road tyres too, if that's your genre.
