The XC excels on steep and technical climbs. And being a 26 inch wheel, you know it's nimble on the descents. It features rocket acceleration and an affinity for trail pumping. Durability is high and comes at an incredible value. Like all Easton wheels, the XC is built by hand using Easton’s proprietary acoustic tensioning and truing method.
