Product Description

The adventurers' choice, the ultimate versatility Wheel-Tyre System designed to withstand the rigours of enduro and make the most of all-day rides.

Crossmax XL Pro WTS offers the perfect blend of performance and reliability for adventurous riders heading off to explore the mountains.

Light rim for technical trails
The 23mm rim (27mm external) brings great comfort and support when the trails get technical. The rim is also paired back, leaving just the right amount of material in high constraint areas. And even more weight is saved thanks to machining between the spokes (Inter Spoke Milling). This lighter weight rim helps climbing, accelerating and handling.

Stronger sidewalls for impact
The rim has also been designed to add strength to the sidewalls, giving more resistance to impacts, which can't always be avoided when riding technical sections at speed. Both the front and rear wheels are built with 24 Mavic bladed Zicral spokes, which give plenty of strength and stiffness. The front wheel has crossed spokes to offer superior comfort and shock absorption (vertical compliance), while the rear wheel is laced using our Isopulse principle to help transfer power to the ground. Radial spokes on the drive side give more responsiveness and enable us to widen the spoke flanges for increased lateral stiffness.

ITS 4 – for perfect power transfer
Our ITS 4 freewheel system with only 7.5° engagement ensures all your power is transferred to the ground quickly when exiting a corner. It’s also compatible with multiple axle standards.

Matching Crossmax Quest tyres
The rim is fully air tight and easy to use as a tubeless wheel (UST) without the hassle of rim tapes. It also perfectly matches the UST Tubeless Ready Crossmax Quest tyre that comes with it (in either 2.4” or 2.25” width to suit you whatever your local terrain has in store).

Versatility is key for the Quest tread design, offering a great mix of rolling efficiency, traction and cornering grip. The new dual compound 55/50 shoreA (X-mix) brings fast rolling and durability to the centre tread and confidence when cornering with softer side knobs. With an additional protection layer, the single-ply casing remains light while being strong enough to ride the most aggressive terrain.

Fully compatible
Hubs are compatible with multiple axle standards, 9/15/20 (delivered 15, others are optional) or Lefty Supermax (2.0) for the front wheel. The rear wheel comes with all adapters for 9/12x135/142 and is available with HG10 or XD driver body.

Weight : 1660 grams (Pair 26" without tyre)

Key technologies


Inter Spoke Milling
An exclusive Mavic patented concept, ISM involves the machining of the lower bridge of the rim between each spoke hole to create a light and rigid rim without reducing the durability of the rim.

Guard +

Protection & performance
The tyre casing is reinforced with a high density extra layer that protects from flats and gives a more supple feel for better comfort and rolling efficiency


Traction and control
Universal Standard for Tubeless. Ready to ride tubeless system. The UST concept improves traction, control and comfort whilst reducing inertia and flats.

UST Tubeless Ready

Traction, control and lightweight
The UST concept improves traction, control and comfort while reducing inertia and flats.
The 'tubeless ready' construction results in a lighter tyre for improved performance.


Instant energy transmission
Instant Transfer System 4: Using 4 pawls working 2 by 2, the system provides a more dynamic ride, thanks to a very fast engagement. Its versatility makes it compatible with all kinds of frame retention system.


Stiffer and stronger
Instead of being drilled, the lower rim bridge is pushed up on the inside, then threaded to enable the spoke nipples to be directly screwed in it, leaving the upper rim bridge intact.


Optimum energy transfer
The spokes are laced radially on the drive side and crossed 2 on the non drive side to maximise drive side dish, thus providing a better spoke tension balance between left and right flanges.


Qualité de Roulements Mavic +
Our most demanding level. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system.


Light, stiff and strong
A specific aluminum alloy that provides spokes with higher stiffness-to-weight ratio while being stronger.


Light and strong
Exclusive to Mavic, this specific aluminum alloy offers a higher strength to weight ratio than conventional 6106 alloy.


Stronger and smoother joint
Soudé Usiné Process. After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish.
