Easton EA70 XCT

Easton’s EA70 XCT 29-inch wheels are some of the easiest-sealing we’ve found. They’re stiff enough for 120-mm bikes, and we dig the stealth styling. We run them with Maxxis Ikon tires ($79 each), which are so sticky on just about every type of terrain—from hardpack to jaggy rock—they’ve become our favorite all-arounders.
