Yup we have been sitting on this one for a while, well in fact since June when I visited the Easton offices. Easton marketing manager Dain Zaffke (who was supposed to be coming to Downieville with me) was sporting production versions of the black on black Haven hoops on his blinged out Santa Cruz Bronson. They are launching at Eurobike today and as far as I know are only available in alloy for the moment. Given how new they are you can rest assured that they are sporting Easton’s new hubs with the revised bearing configuration, so they will go the distance. I should mention that after doing the upgrade myself over six months ago absolutely zero play has developed and that’s with a lot of thrashing on my Tallboy.
Prices and ETA for NZ aren’t available right now, but again, as soon as we know you will.
