The EC70 AX wheels connect EC70 carbon rims to the proven X5CL hub with 28 3x double butted Sapim straight pull spokes. End cap and axle components are available for all major industry standards.
Wide, 24mm internal rims are hookless and are optimized for tubeless gravel tires 35mm and larger, giving you a more confident tire stance for control on the ground during your expansive adventure rides, single track forays and unrelenting gravel races.
The Easton Overland team and SDG Muscle Monster team riders have put these wheels to the test, racing prototypes at Unbound Gravel, with Amity Rockwell taking the Queen title and Amanda Nauman finishing 6th, while at Lost and Found 2019 Michael Van Den Ham came in 4th and Craig Richey took 6th.
The EC70 AX rim is a hookless design and requires the use of a tubeless tire.
Note: these wheels are sold as front and rear separately. The price shown after selecting an option from the dropdown is for that single wheel.

This is my first set of carbon wheels and the weight, strength, rolling resistance is phenomenal. This was a huge upgrade over the stock wheelset that came with my Cervelo and saved 500+ grams. I bought open box so the price could not be beat.
Having over 1000km on the EC70AX wheelset i can confidently say its a great deal! Having used premium wheelset (ENVE G23 and EC90AX). The only difference is the EC70 are about 90 grams more.
That being said the EC70 having 28 spokes is a more robust wheelset compared to others. So if durability is of concern the EC70AX is bomb proof
