Deep and disc'ed: Easton's new EC90 Aero85

Two-year warranty to repair or replace broken wheel 'no matter how the damage occurred'

Easton is rolling out a super-deep disc wheelset with the new EC90 Aero85 Disc, which uses the company's Fantom rim profile and Vault road disc hubs that convert between thru-axle and quick-release. 

The new EC90 Aero85 wheels are tubeless-ready, with a 19mm internal rim width.

The carbon hoops have a clearcoat finish, with the Easton logo masked on the rims before they are blasted.

The wheels have Easton's 6-degree Vault hub engagement.

Notably, Easton is selling the wheels with a two-year, no-fault guarantee (to the original owner with proof of purchase). Easton claims it will repair or replace a damaged wheel "regardless of how the damage occurred or what the damage is".

The guarantee covers the entire wheel, including the rim, spokes, hub and bearings.
