Easton is stepping up the all-mountain game with their Haven Carbon wheelset. Virtually handmade at their EMX factory in Mexico, the Haven Carbons weigh in at a scant 1450 grams for the complete set and all the weight savings is due to the high-tech carbon rim.
Using Armored Ballistc Composite, the Haven Carbon rims are incredibly durable and lighter than other traditional carbon attempts. Impact tests have proven their durability will withstand the rigors of all-mountain riding. Easton is so confident in their durability that they offer a 2 year, no-questions-asked warranty on the wheels.
As the first UST-ready carbon wheelset, they are available in a 9mm/15mm convertible front hub or a 20mm front hub as well as 135mm QR or 142x12 / 135x12 convertible rear hub. 24, single-size Sapim double-butted spokes are used throughout the wheelset which are hand-built and acoustically tuned at the EMX factory.
The set retails for $2300, coming in below the current market offerings. www.eastonbike.com for more information on the Haven Carbon Wheelset
