The name Crossmax is synonymous with XC riding and racing. This new tubeless-ready wheel boasts many of the same features and technologies as premium XC race wheels, but at a more attainable price. One of the key factors is Mavic's UST technology, which allows for easy setup of tubeless ready tires and gives you all the associated benefits including better traction and control, a smoother ride quality and a reduced risk of punctures. The new rim design features a 22mm internal width with a hookless profile. The wheels are built with 24 straight-pull spokes to save weight and maximize wheel strength, so you get just the right balance of efficiency and durability. Power transfer is handled by Mavic's TS-2 freehub, which is compatible with all common axle standards. It’s available in Boost or Non-Boost hub widths and can be used with quick-release or thru-axle setups with optional adaptors.
Mavic's Crossride wheels have been a favorite choice among cross country mountain bikers for years. This is due in no small part to their reputation for durability, reliability, and light weight. To achieve this, Mavic laced up the Crossride with 24 stainless-steel bladed spokes, front and rear, and have been constantly improving hub designs to be stronger and lighter in weight. Their QRM bearing standard keeps you rolling smoothly mile after mile with little or no maintenance, and they come with adapters for different axle standards, making your Crossrides versatile for multiple applications. And, these wheels come matched up with Mavic's own Quest tires with durable ARC rubber compound and Guard casing that team up to make for tough, long-lasting, tubeless-ready tires designed to tackle tough terrain worry-free.
Light, stiff and proven in World Cup competition, Mavic's Crossmax SLR 29s are perfect for XC racers and weekend warriors alike. For maximum strength and lightness they boast Mavic's Maxtal aluminum rims, which feature Mavic's ISM (Inter Spoke Milling) 3D technology which significantly reduces the weight. Boosting the strength and keeping the weight as low as possible are Mavic's straight-pull Zicral aluminum spokes and nipples. Plus, these sweet wheels sport Mavic's efficient QRM+ hubs that have serviceable and durable sealed-cartridge bearings and aluminum axles for more gram savings and strength. These wheels are compatible with UST tubeless and regular tires and tubes, too.
Save energy on the climbs and rail rugged descents with higher speeds and total control. Mavic engineered the XA Pro Carbon to be significantly lighter and laterally stiffer than any aluminum wheel, but also retained the impact resistance and vertical compliance that gives Mavic Wheel-Tire Systems the ride quality they’re known for. The XA Pro Carbon is the lightest wheel system in its category (1490g for 27.5” and 1535g for 29”). So you know it helps you climb and accelerate faster, but where it really shines is in the way it handles rough and challenging terrain. Mavic engineered a wide 26mm hookless rim profile that’s fully UST Tubeless compliant for improved traction, puncture resistance and ease of use. These asymmetric rims are fine-tuned to optimize spoke tension and they use 24 double-butted steel spokes to find the sweet spot between lateral stiffness and vertical compliance. Hubs are 6-Bolt only and compatible with all current axle standards including Standard and Boost.
There’s something incredibly pure about trail riding: the feeling of exploration and the satisfaction of cleaning a technical section are hard to beat. It’s just you versus the terrain so you need gear that won’t let you down. The XA Light provides versatile comfort and control thanks to a new UST welded rim that’s wide (25mm internal), light and strong. It’s also Tubeless Ready, so it’s easy to enjoy the benefits of tubeless tires, including better control and traction along with a reduced risk of punctures. Double-butted spokes save weight without sacrificing strength or durability. We’ve also fine-tuned the hubs and power transfer with Mavic's TS-2 freehub, which is compatible with all axle sizes as well as XD drivetrains. The hubs are compatible with most modern standards (15x100/12x142) and can easily be converted to other options (9x100 front, 9/12x135 rear) with optional adapters.
Years of analyzing wheels as a complete system, and testing them under the most demanding XC race conditions, has proven one thing: the reduced inertia of a superlight rim creates huge performance gains. That’s why Mavic engineered the Crossmax Elite with their lightest aluminum rim, the same one used in the Crossmax Pro. The rim is engineered with ISM 4D (Inter Spoke Milling) technology, which machines the rim between each spoke hole to minimize weight without compromising strength. The rim is wider (22mm internal) and features the UST tubeless system for improved traction, reduced risk of punctures and easier tire mounting. QRM hubs deliver smooth, long-lasting performance, and the fast-engaging ITS-4 freehub enhances the quick and dynamic feel. On the scales, the Crossmax Elite leads its category: 1635g in 27.5, and 1715g in 29. And it’s available in Standard (15x100 and 12x142, convertible to quick release) or Boost (15x110 and 12x148) hub spacing in 27.5 and 29 versions.
