rocky rocketwrote a review of Mavic Crossmax SLR 29in Wheelset - 2014 on September 30, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
500 miles of muck, East Coast rock gardens, high-speed flow trails, and 2 podium finishes. I still don't believe I've not trued these wheels, even after a rear spoke broke after a stick wedged between the the frame and wheel. Oh, and the tire does not come off to change a spoke. The tubeless tires barely leak down as their is no rim tape to worry about. I did put a small dent in the top section of the front wheel descending a nasty trail, that equestrians use too, with sharp edge very loose rocks. the size of footballs. Bike is a Santa Cruz Tallboy and I weigh 190. Thanks for the post below that states with the XD hub I can ride a SRAM 1x11. That's woth thinking about. To finish, I often ride well beyond "light XC".
