Crossmax Pro and Elite get wider rims and Boost compatibility

Mavic have long made some of the nicest wheels around, and have just updated their classic Crossmax wheels with a new XC wheel and tyre system ( WTS ).

The new Crossmax Pro and Elite wheels are available in both 27.5″ and 29″ variations, with two options of tyre size and also the new Boost spacing.

As always, Mavic are sensible with pricings, and offer a high end model – the Crossmax Pro, and a cheaper model – the Crossmax Elite. The Elite looks very similar, but has a few features to keep costing down, without affecting overall price.

Here’s what you need to know about the Crossmax Pro and Elite WTS:

  1. 27.5 and 29in models
  2. 100 and 110mm Boost front hub spacing available

  11. Carbon front hub with Alloy flanges – Pro model

  14. Dedicated Pulse Pro tyres available in 2.1 and 2.25
  15. Dual compound for speed and grip, and a single ply design for light weight
  16. 27.5 ” Pulse Pro tyre weights – 2.1 = 580g | 2.25 = 640g
  17. 29″ Pulse Pro tyre weights – 2.1 = 620g | 2.25 = 680g
  18. Crossmax Pro WTS retail price – £765 | €1000 | $1099.90

Crossmax Pro

The new Mavic Crossmax Pro has stunning battleship grey hubs – the front has a Carbon shell, and Alloy flanges.

The Mavic Crossmax Pro wheels are the high-end race wheels with stunning battleship grey hubs and full UST tubeless technology.

The slightly cheaper Crossmax Elite wheels might not be quite as flashy as the Pro model, but they still come in a variety of colours and are an amazing way of upgrading your bike.
