Easton EA90 SLX no weight limit??
I'm debating whether to purchase Easton EA90 SLX or SL wheels right now. I can find a deal on the SLX for $425 shipped. The cheapest I can find the SL is about $600. But my concern is strength. The SLX is advertised with no weight limit, yet the SL is advertised to be stronger and more durable than the SLX at only 60g heavier.
Although the SLX may seem like the obvious choice at less cost and less weight, I will gladly spend an extra $200 for the SL if I am going to have nothing but trouble with the SLX.
I weight 230 lbs and do a lot of hard climbing, throwing all my weight on the pedals. Any other clydes out there have any experience or advice regarding the SL v. SLX?
