Mavic has just announced their newest mountain bike wheel system ever, designed for cross country riders and fast trail riders: the Crossmax SL. According to Mavic,
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.
The new Crossmax SL wheels will be available in every conceivable axle configuration, size, driver, and can work with any drivetrain available today. The 27.5″ and 29″ wheels are even compatible with Lefty forks.
