Easton EC90 Aero 55 Clincher

$2,800, Eastoncycling.com
The draw: Tubeless option

All the key features of an all-around performer are in this wheelset. Its aero performance, crosswind stability, durability and braking control are on par with the best among mid-depth aero wheels. And on top of those benefits, the EC90 Aero 55 Clincher has a trump card—this rim is compatible with a tubeless setup, allowing for a smoother ride and fewer flat tires. While road tubeless may not yet be faster in a race (due to rolling resistance), it’s a fantastic upgrade for everyday training.
