Easton EC90 Aero 55 Wheelset 2015 Review

The Easton EC90 Aero 55 wheelset combines two recent trends in one package, with a 55mm-deep and 21mm-wide, tubeless-compatible rim. The new profile, dubbed Fantom by Easton, follows the trend for a fatter rim with a blunt leading edge, designed to improve aerodynamic performance and increase stability in crosswinds.

The Easton EC90 Aero 55 is also the world’s first production tubeless-compatible carbon clincher, though it can be run with a conventional inner tube and tyre, and is also available as a tubular wheelset. Tubeless tyres have been the norm in mountain biking for more than a decade and are – slowly – gaining prominence on the road, with the promise of a reduced risk of pinch flats (there is no inner tube to pinch and a sealant fills small cuts in the tyre before substantial pressure is lost) and, as a result, the ability to run your tyres at a lower pressure, improving grip and ride quality.
