Easton EA70 XCT Wheelset

I've been toying with the idea of switching out my Sun Ringle Charger Comps on my On One Lurcher for something a little lighter for some time now.  I got a great deal on the Sun Ringle's through Nashbar and since then I've never been able to find something to compare until now.

Step in the Easton EA70 XCT 29"Competitive Cyclist had them on sale right now for under $240!  With an MRSP of $850, I've opened my wallet and taken the plunge.

Easton's claimed weight on this wheelset is 1745g compared to Sun Ringle's 2075g on my Charger Comps.  The Easton's utilize a straight pull spoke set up and come tubeless ready.  I'm super excited about fitting these to my Lurcher and the stealthy color scheme should be a perfect fit!

Full review will follow.
