Time to upgrade your wagon wheels. The Easton EA70XC 15mm Thru Axle 29-in front mountain bike wheel is a good way to shed some weight and step your performance without dropping a whole lot of coin. The EA70XC wheels have been newly designed, and the engineers took a good hard look at how 29er wheels differ from 26" wheels. While it may seem obvious, they found some subtle ways to improve performance, like wider internal rim widths and an enhanced rim profile, so you get the most out of your wheels.
