    Easton EC90 XC Carbon 26" vs. ENVE Twenty6 xc

    Has anyone ridden either of these wheels? For the Envy Twenty6 xc, I would be going with the DT 240s. Have had these hubs on my Titus for over 7 years, and they are bulletproof!

    I've heard many reviewers, venting about consistent problems with the Easton Hubs, which makes me a be hesitant. There hoops looks awesome though!

    This new wheelset is going on my Ibis Mojo SL.

    So which would you prefer and why?

    Thanks in advance,

    Kevin

    I don't own either but.. a search revealed some good threads/discussions. They might not be exactly your 26 size or DT 240 hubs, but you will get the essence of your question answered.

    Thinking of new carbon wheels, 2012 Easton or ENVE 240?

    Thinking this through ENVE XC UST compared with Easton EC29 XC

    You are welcome... My dream wheels would be Enve's with 240's..

    My budget only allowed me to get Stan's Arch EX 29ers with DT 240's. Bought them through BikerBob and they should arrive on Tuesday!

    Alright, I'm going to throw the Fulcrum Carbon XRP into the mix here. Any one have experience with this wheelset?

    Xtyline, have you seen these wheels. 1347g weight, 19mm inner width, UST wheels, no tape needed.

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    Enve/240's gets my vote. The 240's may not be as "bling" as CK's or I9's but they're just super reliable and easy to work on. Get the 36T ratchet for more POE.

    Thanks flipnidaho! Have you looked at the Fulcrum Carbon XRP wheels? They look pretty impressive, and match up nicely against ENVE, however, the Fulcrum doesn't need tape, as it is a UST wheel.

    Thanks again,

    Kevin
