    New question here. Mavic Crossmax advise needed

    Hi Guys,

    I am thinking of getting a Crossmax Enduro Disk for my 5-spot and am looking for some further info before I throw in the $$$.
    * What's the different between the Endoru and the XL beside the 200$ and the 20mm through axle option?
    * Which of them is stronger and more durable?
    * I heard that they have hubs problems; Is it still the case?
    * Which wheelset is more durable for hard and rocky trail riding?

    Your experienced and knowledgeable advise would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Amit

    if you ride anywere thats muddy i would'nt bother, ok they look the dogs, theyre light n the rims seem pretty strong but i was sick of putting bearings in them.

    The only common parts on the two wheelset are the rims which are good and solid for trail riding.
    The Enduro's are light and pretty strong and bearing in mind where you live,the bearings should do fine.
    The XL's are stronger but not necessarily more durable (just replaced a spoke for a mate yesterday) but he is a big lad
    Not had a hub problem with mine thought others have, so can't say tbh.

    “Which wheel set is more durable for hard and rocky trail riding?"

    XL just, the spoke do break though,ask Bikezilla, need values though tbh.
    How fast, how big, how rocky, how big are your tyres 1.95 or 2.5?

    Or get a custom wheelset rather than off the shelf, it will be better tuned to you, you have the Bike so bite the bullet for a hand built wheelset.

    Hope you get something nice

    Check out the Spinergy Xyclones. I found a brand new set (in the box) on eBay for $395.00. They're 50 grams heavier (per set) than the SL's at an XL price. They seem to be built very well and have the 20mm front axle option.

    Currently I am using 2.35 tires.
    Is this a problem with Crossmax as their limit is defined at 2.3?

    I am mostly doing up to 2 foot drops and ride a lot of rocky terain.
    I want to make sure these wheels can handle that kind of riding.

    Tnx again.

    I would look to save some bucks and get a custom set with some Hope or DT hubs with something like Velocity, DT 4.1d, or M819 rims. You'd save a nice chunk of change, have better hubs, and be able to repair the wheel without it going back to Mavic for a month.

    Just hope you don't ever have to call Spinergy for parts or help with anything. I do wonder who makes their hubs now.

    The enduro is a fine wheelset.

    Buy them and ride them.
