You never know what the trail might throw at you: steep climbs and white-knuckle drops, hero dirt and chunky rocks. Whatever trail features and fun you find, the new Crossmax XL S is ready to roll. One of the best-in-class alloy 29” wheels features many of the proven technologies that have long made Mavic a leader in MTB wheel innovation.
The rims are engineered with the brand's patented Fore technology, featuring a fully sealed upper bridge that eliminates the need for rim tape. That saves 30 grams per wheel and does away with the hassle of using tape to set up tubeless tires. Mavic uses ISM rim machining, which removes material in strategic areas of the rim to minimize weight without compromising strength. The rim has a 30mm internal width, optimized to squeeze the best performance out of any modern trail tire, and Black Shield technology gives them distinctive finish that protects against scratches and abrasions.
The brand uses 24 straight-pull spokes to further dial in the sweet spot between lateral stiffness and vertical compliance. The Infinity hubs feature a stiffer and lighter construction that is enhanced by the ultra-reliable ID360 double ratchet system for fast engagement. This wheel is set up for 6-bolt disc mounts.
