Whether you're looking to race to the XC podium or just make your riding buddies get a mouthful of dust, Easton's EA90 XC 29er wheels are your ticket to the fast track. Their UST tubeless aluminum rims are super light and allow traction-enhancing low tire pressures to make climbing that much easier, while their rugged three-cross spoke-lacing pattern offers heaps of stiffness for superb cornering precision. And, their sealed-bearing M1 hubs are practically impervious to the elements for impressive reliability.
Universal Standard for Tubeless (UST) rims are compatible with UST tubeless, tubeless-ready, and standard tires. When used with UST tubeless tires, the tire and rim form an airtight chamber, allowing the tire to be inflated without a tube. When used with tubeless-ready tires, a sealant (sold separately) must be added to the tire to create an airtight seal. For standard tires, a tube can be used. With the tubeless setups, you can run lower tire pressure for optimum traction and control without fear of pinch flats.
