Light,smooth , bling,UST tubless

Crap hubs..had 2 rebuilds

The hub has worn on these within 150 mniles of XC riding. Had an apology and a rebuild under warranty once and even with an upgraded freehub body and pawls they are f""""d again. One more chance i will give for mavic to rebuild them then i will push for the refund.

Great rims..lovely tubeless system hubs from hell

Strength:

I got the tubeless disc ones as a replacement when I had to replace a broken frame. The old bike had rims and I had to get with the times.

These wheels seem to be the correct balance of light and might. They are very sturdy and you give up little in the way of a weight penalty. Unless you ride the smooth stuff or weigh less than 170lbs you need more beef then the crossmax sl's or xl's have. These wheels feel very light and most mortals won't be able to tell the difference anyway.

Weakness:

None yet - I will be watching the freewheel and hubs closely for durability issues as this has been mentioned in other Mavic lines as a problem area.

Unless you're a little dude (I weigh 190) or ride in the smooth stuff only, you need tuff wheels that can handle the babyheads, jumps, drops and fun that others avoid.

My climbing seems easier and I have confidence in descents - when I stop thinking about the bike and riding becomes second nature with no issues, THATS when I'm happy with a product.

I'm very happy so far and will post an scalding update if these wheels disappoint me in any way.

Strength:

Strong & Light! ... do you need anything else?

Weakness:

None

I use to ride real All-Mountain style, with regular small jumps & drops (sometimes not so small). Rough rocky terrain is common here. Well so far the wheels turn flawless, and I never needed to realign it so far (I only retensioned the spokes after brake-in). Both hubs turn fine and the bearing are notchless.
Very recommanded!!!

Brandon   Cross Country Rider [Aug 11, 2006]
Strength:

Strong rims, light(ish), front wheel has been flawless.

Weakness:

Rear hub is terrible.

This is for the 2005 Mavic Crossmax Enduro Disc wheelset. After one year of riding (aggressive XC, no drops bigger than 4 feet) the hub body has seriously worn down (at the end where the bearing fits in). This is due to play between the hub body (where the pawls are) and freehub. This play (which is designed to be there - something to due with bearing wear according to the local shop) causes the freehub body to twist - at the end opposite the bearing - under high torque when you are in a low gear (like your granny gear), grinding the freehub against the outer rim of the hub body - where the bearing is - as you climb the steep stuff. After a year of riding, the edge of the hub is so worn out that the play in the freehub (and therefor the cassette) has increased and now moves several millimeters in those high torque situations - causing the chain to skip and ghost shift. Talked to several shops, and apparantly this happens with the new SLs as well. Very poor design. The only solution is to replace the hub - which is ridiculous after only one year for such a high priced product. Mavic should stick to rims and leave the hubs to more competent companies. This probably won't be an issue if you do mostly downhill, but if you like serious climbing (not just trekking up fire roads but pushing it hard up steep technical stuff) then the rear hub design is going to make you mad.

Weakness:

none really, a little heavy

Very happy with wheels to date. Have remained true and hubs have not required any repairs.

Strength:

Weight, sturdiness, tubeless option

Weakness:

none

I weigh 190 and ride aggressively when I do ride. These wheels instantly made my bike better. I'm able to accelerate to clear the rock sections that before were my downfall. The bottom line is they made my bike better, and so far they haven't let me down in anyway. As for stickers peeling, I peeled my before I put them on the bike, stealth mode ya know.
