Spotted at the Mellow Johnny’s Classic this past weekend under Cannondale Factory Racing rider Jeremiah Bishop were perhaps some new 29er wheels from Mavic.
The French brand has clued us in that a new range of 29er mountain bike wheels will launch in April, but this might be the first glimpse of them…or some late stage prototypes. The obvious differences from their current C29ssmax wheelset is the red hub and its use on a Lefty fork. Currently, Mavic only offers two 26″ models with Lefty front hubs, and none of their 2012 MTB range uses their red anodized hubs. More as we get it.
Thanks to CJ for the tip and to Denise for the pic!
