While we are still a few days away from Interbike, new products are starting to be released now. Easton Cycling is launching its new Vault disc road hub, which will first be available on the EA90 SL Disc tubeless clincher wheelset. Read more about the new Vault hub and EA90 SL wheelset in this release.
Easton Cycling is excited to launch its new Vault disc road hub. These hubs will be first available on the new EA90 SL Disc wheels and future disc road wheelsets to follow.
From pavement to gravel, winding coastal roads to slogging cyclocross courses, any advantage is appreciated. With disc road, cyclocross and gravel in mind, the Vault hub was designed from the ground up to meet the demands you put on your wheels.
Creating an oversized hub-shell provides an opportunity for performance gains—increased rear drive torsional stiffness and increased lateral stiffness means your power transfer is more direct. Using a reversed drive ring configuration with just six degrees of engagement—two times faster than the industry standard—means when you move, it moves. Vault gives you the technology to advance your ride, increase your response and keep every move dynamic.
To ensure product durability and less service over time, Easton designed low-drag labyrinth seals specifically for the Vault hubs. Add in larger bearings on a widened bearing stance to reduce wear, straight-pull equal-length Sapim spokes for simple service and tool-free swappable end-caps for all major axle standards the Vault hub isn’t just ready for the future, it’s adventure proven.
The new Vault hub also shaves 48 grams off Easton’s earlier M1 hub. It is faster, stronger and simpler by design.
