Easton upped the gravity-friendly Havoc Wheel’s drool factor. A newly redesigned hub rolls with more drop-sending strength, while a wider rim gets the most fat out of your rubber. Easton didn’t stop there. The rim now boasts UST compatibility—and Easton did all this while cutting 150g off last year’s model.
i think these wheels are sick. the true tubeless seals up really well and i've never had a leak. they take wide tires easliy and give you a big foot print. they're also really stiff and track whatever line you put them on, and stand up to abuse extremely well. i suppose if you case enough jumps they might show it, but i haven't come close to knocking them out of true yet. not to mention they look MEAN!
haven carbons are more than twice as much, weaker, and only 300 grams less. i understand that's a sizeable amount, but it's an engineering feat that these whells are so strong and only weigh 1750g, and cost under $1k for a set
because of the tubless design, you have to use easton's proprietary spokes. so if you snap some, you'll have to shell out a little extra, but that's an extra couple bucks over the life of the wheels.
