Easton HEIST 27.5 Wheel (27mm internal width)



Show Description

The benefits of wide rims are hard to refute. Case in point, the Heist 27mm. Wide, burly and enduro-ready, they balance stability, low overall weight (1750g!) and all-mountain versatility. Easy to install endcap adaptors suit QR and thru-axle setups alike, making them future-proof. For riders looking for the best in ride feel and tire pressure control, they come tubeless-ready out of the box. Three-cross lacing mated to 28 brass nipples keep things running true, even when getting real.
