THE GRAVEL KING
Easton’s new AX series meets the needs of the growing drop bar adventure and gravel segment. Building off the highly successful and critically acclaimed lineup of MCD road bars, the EA70 + EC70 AX bar utilize the same top shape and reach as well as ergonomic drop shape. But AX turns up the flare: from 4 degrees to 16 degrees. Why 16-degrees? Based on extensive testing and rider feedback we determined that 16 degrees was the perfect balance of maximum bar flare which still allowed for efficient access to the shifters and brakes in both the hoods and drops. The wider stance in the drops provides more control on gnarly terrain and long gravel assaults. Time to take the road less travelled.
Find the road less travelled on the new EA70 AX wheelset. Joining forces with the EA70 and EC70 AX Bar in our AX adventure road line, the new EA70 AX wheelset has the durability to withstand trail riding but is translated to drop bar applications with center lock hubs and 11-speed road and 12x100 front hub compatibility. From bikepacking adventures loaded with gear, to washboarded gravel descents with only your wheels and tires providing the compliance, we have you covered. The welded tubeless ready rim boasts a generous 24mm
internal rim width that increased tire volume and gives an optimal tire profile for 35 to 50C tires. Available in 650b and 700c it’s the perfect wheelset to round out any adventure drop bar build.
