Strengths:    light, strong and work as advertised

Weaknesses:    a little pricey, but that has always been the case with Mavic, Alu freehub body galls just like every other Alu freehub body made

Bottom Line:   
I have now had these wheels on my Air 9 Carbon for over one year, several thousand miles across Asia (Thailand and South korea. I am a Clydesdale at 220+ lbs 6'2". (Thailand: flat, sandy muddy, hot: Korea= very steep rocky trails)

Wheels are set up tubeless with Schwable racing ralph TLR EVO Snakeskin, XTR 10spd cassette

Riding style: exploring back country remote trails and commuting to work.
I have had to true the rear wheel one time as it was 1mm out of true - (I am picky like that). These wheels have performed great with no issues other than basic normal maintenance. The rear freehub shell has 2 small gall spots in the aluminum where gears 7 and 8 have pushed slightly into them (every aluminum hub I have ridden has done this). A moment with a small file cleared that up. There is no appreciable play in the bearings and I ride in all weather conditions; Rain, snow sleet and shine. I spoke with Mavic at length before buying them and they steered me to the ST over the SLR as the wheel is stronger and only 90g heavier. I would have no issue buying them again

Strengths:    Looks

Weaknesses:    Do not buy these wheels!!! They suck! The hubs come lose all the time and the spokes start creaking after a few months and they just keep getting louder and louder. Customer service sucks and are very very slow.

Bottom Line:   
Stay away from these wheels I know 3 people that ride them and they hate them for the same reasons!!!!! These wheels are not worth 20 dollars!

Strengths:    Looks

Weaknesses:    Rear wheel and hub suck!!!!

Bottom Line:   
Rear hub sucks, the hub was loose before I even rode it! I have to stop about every mile or so to tighten up the rear hub, my used specialized wheel set I picked up for 50 dollars are way more Durable, the local lbs where I got them said this normal and they would eventually stay snug, well 20 rides later they are worse than before and the rear wheel is a noodle way to flexy . They might be ok for fire roads but not anything else. I feel like I got ripped off on these wheels!!!

Mavic Crossmax ST 29 wheels making pinging noise

I recently purchased this wheel set and loved every mile on them. About a month ago the rear wheel started making a pinging noise when under a strong load (uphill climbing). It sounds like its coming from the spokes. Any one have experience with this? I probably have less than 300 miles on them. Tha ... Read More »

Building new bike up Mavic Crossmax SLR 29 vs ST 29

OK, so I'm building up a new 29er and I've always liked the Crossmax wheels so I'm planning to put those on the new bike. I was leaning towards the SLR 29s but my LBS owner, who is building the bike up for me is trying to talk me out of them. I know there's a weight limit on them and I'm right aroun ... Read More »

C29ssmax and Crossmax ST 29..difference is?

I'm getting ideas for wheels and a trusted source pointed me in the direction of Mavic. I've found both of these wheel sets and they are in my price range, but really, what is the difference between the two? :confused: I ride XC don't race and I'm heavy.Read More »
