Mavic Introduces All-New Crossmax Wheel
Mavic is pleased to introduce our lightest ever mountain bike wheel system, the Crossmax SL. Made for cross-country riders, racers, and fast trail riders, the Crossmax SL features exclusive Mavic materials and technologies for exceptional light weight with no sacrifice in stiffness, durability, or ride quality. Thanks to an all-new rim shape and Mavic’s proprietary ISM 4D machining process, the Crossmax SL wheels are up to 100 grams lighter than the current lightest MTB wheels in the range, the Crossmax SLR. Of course, Mavic’s known and proven technologies like FORE spoke insertion drilling, bladed Zicral spokes (20 front and rear), Isopulse lacing for the rear wheel (radial drive/2-cross non drive), and UST tubeless compatibility are integrated into the new Crossmax SL.
Crossmax SL wheels will be available in every popular size and configuration. The ITS-4 rear hub accommodates standard quick release fitment, plus 12x135mm and 12x142mm through axles. Shimano 10- and 11-speed cog systems can be fitted, as can SRAM 11-speed (with the Mavic XD driver body, available separately). The front hub fits standard quick releases and 15QR systems. Additionally, the 27.5” and 29” wheels will be available to fit Lefty Supermax forks.
- 26” (1390g per pair, 630g front/760g rear)
- 27.5” (1470g per pair, 665g front/805g rear)
- 29” (1520g per pair, 690g front/830g rear)
Availability in the USA of the Crossmax SL Wheel-Tire System is planned for September, with an MSRP of $999.90.
