Disc brakes have arrived in road cycling. They’re proven in mountain and cyclocross, and with the new EC90 SL Disc wheels combined with the latest brake systems, there are no longer any compromises associated with going disc. The EC90 SL takes the proven Fantom rim shape and scales it down to a shallower 38-millimeter depth. The EC90 SL Disc is available in tubular or certified Road Tubeless carbon clincher and are entirely built by hand from start to finish and acoustically tuned. These wheels combine top-end materials, a methodical build and the proven M1 6-bolt disc hubset. Best of all, these wheels are future proof, they can convert to 15x100 & 12x100; parts sold separately.
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire bead. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
