Mavic Crossmax ST for AM Riding?
I'm in the market for a light weight, yet durable wheelset for my Mojo HD. I saw a brand-new pair of Crossmax ST wheels for $560 and I know that's a screaming deal. I know the Crossmax ST wheels are more of a cross-country set, but I was wondering if anybody is usage them on their AM rigs. I'm 155 lbs and I like to hit some moderately big drops. The allure of these wheels is weight and price. Do you guys think I could make them work for aggressive AM riding? The claimed weight according to Mavic is 1590 grams. My alternative would be lacing hope pro 2 hubs to Stans ZTR hoops at about 1849 grams for $650. As always, any insight is greatly appreciated.:)
Running 2.35's No Problem
I've been running the new ST's for the last year (15mm front/142 on the rear).
And have had no problem's (probably my 5th Mavic Wheelset and generally they don't need much maintenance).
I like the new upgraded hub's and the rim's make it super easy to run tubeless.
