Mavic XA Light 29in Wheelset $449.90
Trail-hungry wagon wheels.
You've been dedicated, driven, and determined to progress on the trail, and it shows. You're cleaning rocky lines that used to send your brakes screeching, and blasting berms left and right. The only problem is, your old stock wheelset just doesn't seem to be keeping up with you these days. You're getting pinch-flats left and right, and your homemade tubeless setup seeps constantly. Its about time you reach for a trusty set of hoops that are eager to push you further, like the Mavic XA Light 29in Wheelset. These tubeless-ready wagon wheels are eager to get on the dirt, offering you all of the pluses you've been hearing about, like low tire pressures that soak up trail chatter, reduced rolling resistance for soaring through the miles, and naturally, fewer flats.
The XA Light 29 wagon wheels offer a great balance of light weight, dependability on the trail, and pocket-friendly cost — admittedly without being the top dog in any of these individual categories, but when you want to take on so much with a wheelset you've got to meet in the middle a bit. Weighing 1840 grams with its S6000 alloy construction, it's a nice compromise between low rolling weight and overall dependability on the trail, all without emptying your wallet on pricier wheels. They make for an ideal trail wheel for those with a slightly less aggressive riding style heading to the trailhead to get into the woods and local mountains, instead of the thrashers who are hungry for blasting berms and skyrocketing off of big drops.
Mavic's UST rim profile sets up nicely with your favorite tubeless tires, thanks to its hookless rim design that won't turn your tire into a bulbous shape or squared-off profile. Not only does it set up nicely with tubeless tires, but the 25-millimeter internal width supports modern trail tires of 2.2 to 2.3 inches in width (give or take a few tenths of an inch). By providing optimal support for tubeless trail tires, you'll be able to run lower pressures, in turn gaining better traction, bump compliance, and rolling speed on the trail.
