PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Easton EC90 SL Tapered Fork 2012

The super-sized EC90 SL Taper fits the latest crop of frames with tapered head tubes. Like all forks in the EC90 family, the new SL Taper incorporates Easton's unique ITT Internal Thread Technology, which eliminates slippage and possible steer tube damage caused by traditional expanding steer tube plugs. Any rider will feel confident knowing that the EC90 SL Taper features one-piece continuous CNT carbon monocoque construction. For 1 1/2" lower crown races and 1 1/8" upper races, 55cm crown diameter, 43mm rake. ITT anchor nut easy to install and makes steerer tube less prone to damage.

Internal Thread Technology (ITT)

Defined: Carbon steer tubes with a layer of high strength epoxy-infused internal threads, eliminate the need for heavy, clumsy internal expander plugs that can slip or damage steer tubes. ITT threads are capable of withstanding 2500 ft/lbs without pulling out.

Advantage: Lighter, stiffer, stronger fork/steer tube system, and easier headset setup and adjustment. Found on: Easton EC90 level forks with carbon steer tubes.

Relief Area Design (RAD):

Defined: A flat spot running the length of Easton steer tubes and seat posts, corresponding with the clamp zone of stems and seatpost clamps. Removing material in these critical zones prevents clamping forces from pinching and damaging carbon tubing.

Taperwall Technology:

Defined: TaperWall technology infuses our tubing with the unique performance characteristics revered by cycling enthusiasts and world-class athletes alike. Our computer-modulated draw benches allow us to create multiple tapers in the same tube, so the tube walls can be reinforced anywhere along their length with incredible precision. The result is jeweler-smooth walls that eliminate the stress points typical of other manufacturer's tubing. Strength, weight, fatigue life, and responsiveness are all enhanced.

Easton also applies TaperWall technology to out carbon components. This enables them to apply more material to wall surfaces where stiffness is paramount and less material to areas requiring more compliance.

Q: Can u tell me if this fork will be a direct replacement for a 2012 Specialized tarmac Sl-4 ( same angle etc. ) Thanks,Bob

A: These forks are compatible on 1 1/2" lower crown races and 1 1/8" upper race and would not work on the 1 3/8th specialized frame.

Great carbon fork. I really like the fact that this Easton fork is threaded thus eliminating the star nut issues you can encounter on other fork stems. Price was awesome and delivery to Canada was fast with no suprices.
