MAVIC 2018 Wheelset XA Pro Carbon 27.5
Trail riding is all about saving energy on the climbs so you can enjoy the descents even more. And, when well designed, carbon wheels can perform brilliantly at both. However, we’ve heard plenty of feedback from riders that carbon wheels can often perform badly in vertical compliance, which translates into difficult steering and loss of traction and control. So, when we engineered the XA Pro Carbon, our goal was to make it significantly lighter than any aluminum wheel, but also laterally stiffer, still as impact resistant and with a decent vertical compliance, so you can step on the power downhill with total confidence. To achieve this, we pushed our exclusive Finite Element Simulation software to the limit to find a carbon lay up that would best balance light weight, impact resistance, lateral stiffness and vertical compliance in the rim. Hookless rims for compatibility We wanted the wheel to work with the most commonly used trail tire width (2.3 to 2.4), so we established that a 26mm hookless rim profile would deliver the best performance. It’s fully UST Tubeless compliant, for improved traction, flat resistance and ease of use. And we’ve sealed the rim with a specifically designed rim tape. Asymmetric rims Our unique Mavic wheelsystem allowed us to fine-tune the lacing to better complement the rim characteristics. Firstly, we made the rim asymmetric to better balance spoke tension and we also decided to use 24 double butted steel spokes, crossed three on both sides, front and rear, to once again find the sweet spot between lateral stiffness and vertical compliance. At only 1490g in 27.5'' and 1535g in 29'', the XA Pro Ca leads the category in terms of weight so is ideal for even the most demanding riders. Set up to suit you Hubs are six Bolts disc, but compatible with standard width dimensions (15x100 and 12x142) and Boost dimensions (15x110 and 12x148).
