I have owned both.

SLXs are nice but come in massively overweight - 1250g ish is right.

202s come in at 1100g.

202s are wider, have fewer spokes (IIRC) and will be more aero.

Zipp hubs are better.

Both are durable. Only problem I've had on two years with 202s - maybe 7000km or so - is when someone went into me sideways in a race a few weeks ago and they were knocked a bit out of true.

In the Easton's favour ... external nipps and lower price.

Re the Firecrest comment ... I doubt anyone making that comment (which compares a new clincher model with an existing tubular) has ridden either wheelset.

unless the OP is looking at a particular vintage of zipp wheel, it will have external nipples.

Yes, you are right. Too many wheelsets!. It's a nice advantage for tub wheelsets for sure.

So Eastons have it on price and everything else points to Zipp.

DT great hubs, rubbish everything else


DT wheels = Reynolds rims + DT hubs.

I think they are pretty good

get both, that way you'll still have one pair to ride while the others being fixed.


Agreed. Get both pairs. Since you are going tubular you can still go for a ride on your second wheel set , while you wait for the glue on the first wheel set to cure after you fixed the flat..

DT - lower grade hubs than Zipp.

Unless you like jam in your hub.

@eigner - was that a thinly disguised jab at tubs? :-)

I've been riding them for 24 years...just comfortable with them.

And thanks for the DT feedback - I don't necessarily need/want to limit my choice to Easton or Zipp, I'm open to anything.

Looking at the Bonty D3 now as well...

Altough i have not yet used my EC90 SLX, their weight is 1146 without qr. That is pretty light and under Eastons claimed weight.

It was :oops:

I'd love to be able to ride tubulars. I have owned Fulcrum Racing Speed and DT RRC445F/RRC555R set and they where amazing until I flatted - again.. The road conditions around here are just no good for tubulars.
:noidea:
