Things to know about Easton

Easton Cycling was founded in 1984, and directly set out to combine the highest engineering skills with modern materials in order to help jumpstart the budding gravel scene. To leave absolutely no room for doubts about how dedicated they were to their cause, the young company directly reached for UCI-standard gear, knowing that what met world class level would also make the everyday biker very happy indeed. Premium equipment can never hurt, right?! Even with their ever growing success the thinkers behind Easton never lost touch with their ideals. They build drop bar-material only. Period.

Easton drop bars

Speaking of drop bars – Easton offers several of those, you can get them at varying prices, in different shapes, forms and made from alloy or different carbon compositions. Apart from optimizing their weight, the shape of the handlebars is perfected over and over again. They are optimized to let you ride for hours without numb arms or signs of fatigue, also they give you a feeling of absolute control over your gravel or road bike. Depending on your proportions and preferences you can choose between different sizes, more or less rise, flare or backsweep. For a perfect grip Easton provides cork tape in two qualities and many different colors.

Easton also builds a choice of speedy gravel and road wheels, you will find some aero optimized wheels too. All of them are as light as bike wheels come, naturally! Wheels made from ultra light carbon were a long-fostered desire of many bikers, only the material was not ready, it was too delicate, too weak for tires. Luckily, this has changed in the last few years, these days light and durable carbon hoops are easily available. To meet the skepticism of cautious bikers Easton created its Carbon Confidence Program. The engineers are so sure of their carbon wheels that you will get extra warranty when you buy a set.
