Hi, does anyone here know what Mavic rims are the successors to the 217? I had these on my old bike and I liked them a lot, but now I see they've moved on and I don't know what is the newest equivalent. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! :D

The 517 was the first successor...and now that has been superceded by the 717.

I had terrible luck with the 217's on my old hardtail. That rim was notoroious for breakage and pinch flatting (LOTS of people had trouble with that rim). The 517 was a little better. I have no idea how good the 717's are.

If you want a strong, light XC rim, there are also some potentially better choices from Velocity and DT-Swiss to consider...

Thx...Doug
