Mavic Crossmax 29 or Easton XC One 29?
I am thinking about wheelsets and have come across these two choices at reasonable prices. Does anyone have experience with one or both? The Eastons seem to be lighter weight, but I'm not sure about the other specs. Any help would be great, thanks!
I just picked up a set of Crossmax 29's today along with an Air 9 frame, but have yet to build up the bike and ride them (still need a fork)... I was going to go with Easton Ones (found at good price), but these Mavics fell into my lap at an even better price, so I snatched them. I guess the only differences I saw were Mavic is 19mm inside width, Easton XC One is 18mm, and the Mavics are of course tubeless ready out of the box, no strips needed, whereas with the Easton, you'll need strips for tubeless.
I'll weigh them to see how close to 1750g they are for the advertised wheelset weight. Easton Ones are claimed at 1720g.
