With an internal width of 40mm, you can’t fault Mavic for being too narrow here. Their new XA Elite+ wheels are built specifically for wider tires, though they say the acceptable range is from 2.35 to 3.2″. Using ISM4D machined aluminum rims, steel spokes, and straight pull hubs with their ITS-4 freehub design, the wheels have a claimed weight of 1900g and a price of just $649 in 27.5″ wheels only.
Initially launched last year at Eurobike, Mavic is happy to point out that Sam hill rode the new Deemax Pro wheelset to the overall Enduro World Series Championship in 2017. The wheels feature a staggered width of 28mm internal up front and 25mm internal out back, with Zicral spokes, an ISM4D rim with UST rim bed, and QRM+ straight pull hubs for $1099, and is sold without the Claw Pro XL tires.
Moving on to helmets, Mavic has an interesting new lid with the XA Pro. Built with a Clima Flow ventilation system, EPS 4D foam, and a unique brim/visor, the helmet is priced at $149.95.
The Crossmax SL Pro is a MIPS equipped helmet that is more race oriented with a dial retention system and price of $169.95.
Mavic follows a similar pattern with their new shoes with an XA Pro shoe that is more for the plus/adventure/trail crowd. Using an Energy Grip Trail+ outsole with a carbon composite inner plate that is SPD compatible, the shoe combines a dial retention system with a velcro strap for easy adjustability at $179.95.
The Crossmax Pro is again more race focused with a carry over design and new colors for 2018 and a price of $249.95.
Finally, new Deemax Shorts and undershorts add to their clothing collection for aggressive riding at $129.95/$69.95 (undershort sold separately).
Expect the wheels to show up in shops by November 17, while the apparel won’t be hitting stores until January and March of 2018 depending on the item.
