In light of the way things seem to be going, coming out with a "new," NARROWER 29er rim is... uh... interesting?
It doesn't actually look to be a new rim. It looks like nothing more than a mountain branded A317 (which they "dropped").

Mavic hasn't done anything new worth speaking about in regards to their rims is a decade. No expansion of their UST rims (like a 21mm wide AM model and a 29er model). No dedicated 29er rims, just touring rims that they relabel.

With so much of the market going to 29ers (even in Europe) they are in serious danger of loosing out and becoming irrelevant in the mountain bike market.
