Show Description

In a boost or non-boost version, this is a light wheel designed to be strong and fun, and to get the most out of any trail. Using Maxtal and a Mavic-exclusive aluminum alloy, the wheel is lighter than conventional 6106 alloy options. The 25mm internal width offers up a playful, stable, ground-hugging ride. Tubeless ready rims, 24 double-butted, straight-pull spokes laced in a 2-cross pattern and hubs with sealed bearings makes it a wheel that shines, even when the trails are muddy. Paired with Quest Pro tires that have X-mix dual compound (softer on the shoulder, harder in the centre) and guard plus protection from flats, these are the charm for solid-feeling and efficient enduro riding.

  • Maxtal alloy rims are lightweight and UST tubeless compatible.
  • 25mm internal rim width fits tires from 1.4 to 2.7in.
  • Straight pull bladed spokes are made of light, durable double-butted steel.
  • 24 spokes front and rear are 2-cross laced for stiffness.
  • Aluminum hubs with aluminum axles keep the weight low.
  • Compatible with 6-bolt rotors.
  • 15mm thru-axle can easily be converted to QR with the included kit.
  • QRM cartridge bearings are sealed and easy to adjust.
  • Available in Boost or regular spacing to fit your bike.
  • 2.4in Mavic Quest Pro tires with single ply construction uses a dual compound for grip and rolling efficiency.
  • Includes tubeless rim tape, UST valve and accessories, front QR adaptor, and a BR101 quick release.
  • Front wheel weight (without tire): 780 grams.
