The Mavic Crossmax SLR 26in Wheelset is the beacon on the hill when it comes to lightweight, stiff, and nearly indestructible aluminum wheelsets for your cross-country machine. The French manufacturer didn't take any shortcuts when they designed the Crossmax line.

The SLR receives the same durable Maxtal rim as the ST, except the SLR rims are slimmed down thanks to Mavic's ISM-3D technology. ISM-3D takes the ISM (Inter Spoke Milling) a step further by not only machining out the lower bridge of the rim between each spoke hole, but also its sidewalls. The result is a lighter rim, which translates to better acceleration and improved climbing for the rider.

The rim is 23mm wide for a better tire/ rim interface and the rim joint is sealed using Mavic's super-smooth SUP process. The wider rim maximizes the tire's footprint to improve trail grip, add stability to the sidewall for improved cornering, and minimizes the chance of pinch flatting if you're using standard tubes.

The lightweight, aluminum-alloy Zicral spokes connect to the SLR's Maxtal rims via Mavic's Fore drilling process. The Fore process only drills one of the two rim walls for spoke nipples. This makes the rim 20% more rigid and four times more resistant to fatigue. Fore drilling also means that you avoid the tubeless conversion kit because there are no holes in the rim, so jumping to tubeless has never been easier. The SLR's front and rear wheel both have 20-spokes, are laced 2-cross in the front, and use Isopulse lacing in the rear (2-cross on the left and radial on the right) for balanced spoke tension and better durability.

The oversized front hub and the axle inside are machined from aluminum, while the rear axle is made from both titanium and aluminum to shed a few extra grams. They spin on Mavic's high-grade QRM+ cartridge bearings to ensure smooth operation, and both the front and rear hubs are micro-adjustable with the included hub tool/tire lever. The ITS-4 alloy freehub body is compatible with 8-, 9-, and 10-speed mountain cassettes.

This wheelset is part of Mavic's MP3 extended warranty program. The acronym stands for Mavic Product Protection Plan, and it provides you with two years of almost unlimited no-fault protection from Mavic. More details can be found on the MP3 website. Please note that MP3 coverage must be purchased within 5 days of the date that you receive your wheels. Contact one of our customer service representatives for the retailer and product codes that you'll need to register your wheels on the Mavic MP3 site. You'll also need the serial numbers that you'll find on your wheels. The cost for this coverage is approximately 8% of the retail cost of the wheels.

The Mavic Crossmax SLR 26in Wheelset comes with wheelbags, BX601 quick releases, UST valve stems, a bearing adjustment tool, front and rear QR adapters, rear 12x142mm adapters, spoke magnet, and a spoke wrench. The wheelset comes set up for 15mm QR up front and standard quick-release out back. Mavic recommends tire widths from 1.5-2.3". The front wheel weighs 660g, the rear 780g, for a total wheelset weight of 1440g.

  • ISM-3D rim milling removes excess material from between spokes and on sidewalls for the lightest possible rim without strength compromise
  • UST tubeless compatible for lighter weight, better traction, and fewer pich-flats
  • IST-4 freewheel 4 pawls working 2 by 2 for quick engagement
  • 17mm monobloc axle for added stiffness
  • QRM+ double-sealed bearing system with micro-adjustments, 'free' position for friction-free speed, and high-precision setting for all-weather rides
  • FORE technology for greater durability and 20% greater rim stiffness
  • ISOPULSE lacing for quicker energy transfer and an ideal wheel balance
  • Welded and milled SUP rims eliminate shudder when braking and offer superior balance to traditional seams
