The XA Elite was born to meet the needs of trail riders who love to push the limits on challenging terrain. Lightweight, strong, and engineered to deliver confidence and control, it boasts purpose-built features for off-road performance. The first thing that sets the XA apart from the competition is the Maxtal rim. Our patented ISM 4D technology removes all but the most necessary material, so you get snappier acceleration and a more dynamic ride quality. A 25mm wide (internal) rim features UST technology with tubeless tape installed so it’s easier to experience the improved traction and control of tubeless tires. The rims are laced to our proven QRM hubs for smooth, dependable performance no matter how rough the conditions. The new ID 360 freehub delivers fast engagement to further enhance the dynamic feel. Innovative technologies boost control and confidence on the trail - ISM 4D machining makes the wheel lighter without compromising strength. - 25mm wide (internal) rim - New ID 360 freehub system for quick pedal engagement Proven strength and durability for off-road adventures - 24 bladed straight-pull and double-butted spokes on front and rear - Tubeless tape provides the lightest and simplest way to get tubeless benefits including better traction, comfort, and reduced risk of punctures. Easy-to-use tubeless performance - Using UST technology, the wheel comes prepared for easy tubeless setup.
The advantages of carbon rims are well-known by now: They are light, they are stiff, and they can be built to be nearly indestructible. But with this new trail-riding wheel, we also focused on ride quality. There is such a thing as too stiff, and the XA Elite was developed over time to find the perfect balance that also includes just enough vertical compliance to smooth out the ride quality and optimize tire performance. It all starts with the layup of the carbon fiber itself. We went through several iterations to arrive at the perfect formula, as deemed by our experienced test riders. The rims have an asymmetric shape and are 30mm wide, perfect for getting the most out of just about any trail riding tire. We use 24 straight-pull spokes to further dial in the spot between lateral stiffness and vertical compliance. The hubs feature our new ID 360 freewheel for durability and fast engagement. They are set up for 6-Bolt discs and compatible with all current axle standards, including Standard and Boost spacing. Lightweight feel (1650g) for fast climbing and agility on the trail - Full-carbon rim delivers quick acceleration and a responsive feel. Better traction and control, plus a reduced risk of punctures - 30mm internal width rims are optimized for larger trail tires. - Hookless rim profile reduces tire burbs and creates stronger rim. More control, more confidence on the trail - Laterally stiff with just enough vertical compliance - Two-cross spoke pattern on the front and rear creates a smooth, comfortable ride quality.
Engineered with the same spirit of innovation that made Mavic the first to create the mountain bike wheel system, and also the first to introduce the tubeless mountain bike wheel system, this versatile off-road wheelset elevates the trail riding experience. Made with a lightweight aluminum rim that has zero compromises in strength and lateral stiffness, it delivers dependable all-around performance on a variety of trail conditions and terrain. The rim features our ISM 4D technology to remove unnecessary material and also Fore drilling for the spoke attachment. This minimizes rotational weight, giving them a snappy, dynamic ride quality. The rims are 25mm wide with UST technology, making it easy to experience all the benefits of tubeless tires, including better traction, increased control, and a reduced risk of flats. The wheels are built up with 24 bladed Zicral spokes for lateral stiffness and just enough vertical compliance. Dynamic and lightweight feel for efficient climbing and added agility - ISM 4D machining makes the wheel lighter without compromising durability. - 25mm internal rim width Proven technologies for performance and durability - 24 straight-pull bladed Zicral spokes, front and rear - UST tubeless technology for improved traction and control and reduced risk of punctures - Fore drilling on the rims UST Tubeless Ready design gives you total control on challenging terrain - User-friendly tubeless technology for better traction and control with reduced risk of punctures - Wheels ship with tubeless rim tape installed.
