Centered around the battle tested X5 mountain hub from the popular Heist wheelset Easton created the X5 CL hub, because centerlock has seen strong adoption on the road.

Front

Find the road less travelled on the EA70 AX front wheel. Joining forces with the EA70 and EC70 AX Bar in Eastons AX adventure road line, the EA70 AX wheel has the durability to withstand trail riding but is translated to drop bar applications with a center lock hub. From bikepacking adventures loaded with gear, to washboarded gravel descents with only your wheels and tyres providing the compliance, Easton has you covered. The welded tubeless ready rim boasts a generous 24mm internal rim width that increased tyre volume and gives an optimal tyre profile for 35 to 50C tyres. Available in 650b and 700c it’s the perfect wheelset to round out any adventure drop bar build.

Rear

The EA70 AX rear wheel has the durability to withstand trail riding but is translated to drop bar applications with center lock hubs and 12x142 rear hub compatibility (10x135mm QR adapter also included). From bikepacking adventures loaded with gear, to washboarded gravel descents with only your wheels and tyres providing the compliance, this wheel has you covered. The welded tubeless ready rim boasts a generous 24mm internal rim width that increased tyre volume and gives an optimal tyre profile even for wider gravel and CX tyres.
