The result of Easton’s passion for engineering perfect solutions for specific types of riding, the XR performs in any Trail, All Mountain, or XC situation. These wheels are built to last, no matter how hard or reckless you ride. Other highlights include 12mm through axle and sealed cartridge bearings. Like all Easton wheels, the XR is built by hand using Easton’s proprietary acoustic tensioning and truing method.

Q: Are these wheels set up for 6-bolt disc? Thanks Scott

Q: Would a 10 speed cassette fit on this wheel
A: Yes, you can use a 10 speed cassette on this wheel.
Q: I have a quick release rear on my 29". How do I know what size I have?
A: Check with your bike frame's manufacturer for the exact specifications on your rear dropout.
Q: Is there weight information on this wheel ?
A: Unfortunately, Easton has not provided a weight for this wheel at this time. I apologize we cannot weigh the wheel.
This wheel is not the lightest nor the widest but for the money it is a solid wheel. I have been on it for a few months now riding at least 3-4 times a week and it has held up to the abuse. I am 185 and ride a Transition 29er steel hardtail so the rear takes a lot of abuse on my bike. I cracked my last rim, a WTB Frequency I23, after about a year of riding my local trails so I am hoping that this Easton will last me as long if not longer. The wheel was set up tubless with no issue. I used a standard MTB floor pump, not a high volume pump, to inflate. So far this wheel is worth the money.
