Today we are featuring product Mavic Crossmax SLR 27.5 Disc Wheelset, a great example of one of our Bicycle Wheels from Mavic. We give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.
Lithe and lightning fast, the Mavic Crossmax SLR 27.5 Disc Mountain Bike Wheelset is built to meet the demands of cross-country racing. Proprietary lightweight aluminum rims have a drilling method that doesn’t penetrate the tube-facing wall, enhancing wheel strength and rigidity. This drilling method also allows UST tubeless compatibility, offering all the benefits of tubeless with the option of using a traditional tube/tire setup. Inter Spoke Milling 3D dramatically reduces material between spokes and along sides of rims, reducing weight and making them well-suited to climbing and fast acceleration. Rim joints are welded and milled to maximize strength, rigidity and wheel balance while also offering a smooth finish. Rear hub uses Instant Transfer System 4 freewheel design to supply fast engagement via 4 pawls, ensuring your energy is transferred to the wheel quickly and efficiently. Double-sealed cartridge bearings deliver excellent longevity and smooth spinning; microadjustability lets you fine-tune bearing loads to optimize your ride. Both wheels use 20 lightweight, straight-pull and bladed Zicral alloy spokes; front is laced 2-cross while rear uses radial lacing on drive-side and 2-cross on non-drive-side. Front hub is compatible with either 15mm thru-axle or traditional 9mm quick-release; rear hub is compatible with 9mm or 12mm axles, 135mm or 142mm axle widths. Mavic Crossmax SLR 27.5 Disc Wheelset is compatible with standard 6-bolt disc brake rotors. Comes with wheel bags, quick-release (QR) skewers, front and rear QR adapters, rear 12x142mm adapters, removable UST valves/accessories, magnet, adjustment tool and disc bolts. Mavic recommended maximum combined weight of the cyclist, bike and equipment is 220 lbs. (100kg); recommended tire width is 1.5 – 2.3 in.
