Mavic's Crossmax XL Pro wheels are a great choice when the terrain gets gnarly. Their ISM-lightened rims are designed with extra-strong, impact-resistant sidewalls so you can charge down rocky descents with confidence. These wheels are laced with 24 Zicral aluminum straight-pull spokes that deliver lightweight strength, featuring Isopulse lacing in the rear wheel for increased lateral stiffness and great power transfer. The matching, UST tubeless-ready Crossmax Quest tires provide the added durability of a Guard+ layer along with a versatile, dual-compound tread that bites into corners and keeps you on your line. All this trail-grabbing technology spins on the incredibly-smooth and maintenance-free QRM+ bearings. Rear wheels and wheelsets are available with either a Shimano/SRAM compatible freebub body or SRAM XD driver-equipped rear hub.
Inter Spoke Milling:
An exclusive Mavic-patented concept, ISM involves the machining of the lower bridge of the rim between each spoke hole to create a light and rigid rim without reducing durability.
Protection & performance:
The tire casing is reinforced with a high-density extra layer that protects from flats yet maintains a supple feel for better comfort and rolling efficiency.
Universal Standard for Tubeless:
UST delivers a ready-to-ride tubeless system. The UST concept improves traction, control, and comfort while reducing rotating mass and flats.
Traction, control and lightweight:
The UST concept improves traction, control, and comfort while reducing rotating mass and flats. The tubeless-ready construction results in a lighter tire for improved performance.
Instant Transfer System 4:
Using four pawls working 2-by-2, the system provides a more dynamic ride, thanks to extremely fast engagement. Its versatility makes it compatible with all kinds of axle systems.
Stiffer and stronger:
Instead of being drilled for spoke nipples, the lower rim bridge is pushed up on the inside and threaded to make it possible to directly screw the nipples into the lower rim bridge, eliminating the need to drill the upper rim bridge. Besides improving the nipple-rim interface, this design is ideally suited to tubeless tire setups and helps maintain rim integrity.
Optimum energy transfer:
The spokes are laced radially on the drive side and 2-cross on the non-drive-side to maximize drive-side dish, providing a better spoke tension balance between left and right flanges.
Qualité de Roulements Mavic + :
QRM+ is Mavic’s most demanding level of hub and bearing precision. It uses only double-sealed cartridge bearings with C3 internal clearances and features a system for making micro-adjustments to bearing preload.
Lightweight, stiff, and strong:
Zicral spokes are made of a specific aluminum alloy to achieve a higher stiffness-to-weight ratio while maintaining high strength.
Lightweight and strong:
Exclusive to Mavic, this specific aluminum alloy offers a higher strength-to-weight ratio than conventional 6106 alloy, allowing greater latitude in design while maintaining high strength and durability standards.
Soudé Usiné Process:
After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish, resulting in a stronger, smoother, more reliable rim joint.
