Product Description

An mountain bike wheel with purpose. The Mavic XA Elite WTS 27.5" MTB Wheels are lightweight and strong, adding performance to any trail bike.

Using Mavic’s ISM 4D weight savings technology, the XA rims have been machined between the spokes to remove any excess material, while keeping strength high. They are made from Maxtal alloy, a high strength-to-weight aluminium and feature Mavic’s SUP join, for even great strength.  The hookless, 25mm internal diameter rims hit that balance between tyre support and reduced rolling resistance. These rims have been designed to work perfectly with tubeless systems, and come with a tubeless kit.

The hubs have both alloy bodies as well as axles, for lightweight rolling, and an ITS-4 alloy freehubs to efficiently transfers power. Sealed cartridge bearings make maintenance easy and the bodies are alloy for weight savings as are the axles. The rear wheels come supplied with 12x142mm adaptors, while the front can be converted to quick release with adaptors available separately. These wheels are also available with a SRAM XD driver freehub or standard Shimano and in Boost spacing (front: 15x110mm/rear: 12x148mm).

Matching up to the hubs are straight pull steel spokes. These add rigidity and strength. The weak point of normal J-bend spokes is removed with the use of straight-pull spokes, allowing for less spokes to be used and keeping the wheels lightweight. There are 24 spokes front and rear with a 2 cross pattern for both wheels. The spokes are bladed for even more rigidity and double butted, giving an even lighter weight.

The X-mix, dual compound Quest Pro tyres offer great grip in the corners with softer side knobs, yet fast rolling with the highly spaced centre knobs. The casing protects from those sneaky rocks on the trail, keeping you rolling even through really rough terrain. These tyres are UST tubeless ready.
