    broken Mavic axle Crossmax SX

    have a pair of 2012 mavic crossmax sx wheels. the axle broke again for the 2nd time. has anyone else been having this issue? were you able to use a different more reliable axle in it's place? thanks.

    The 10/12mm stepdown axle? If so, Sun-Ringle makes a nice Al one. Or go with an Azonic one if you want steel.

    i'm currently using a 12x135 axle with 9m adaptors. if the sunringle or azonic fit (mavic proprietary stuff) i'd give them a shot. the mavic axle will just brake again

    Hey Ocguy200,
    I read you'd post and thought I'd give you my take. I've been a Mavic athlete for over 7 years and I've recently started helping them out by doing some community management which makes me an official Mavic answer guy. I use bolt on axle kits on all my bikes except XC and I've also never had an axle failure. I'm a pretty big guy; 6'4" 215 so I'm guessing this stiffens up the entire unit. Mavic makes a solid through axle that's available from your local retailer, but there are several different types on the market. Let me know if you decide to try it out!

    thanks for the reply. been using a steel stepdown bolt the last year or so. just discovered the alloy axle on the rear mavic crossmax sx is broken AGAIN! this makes the 3rd time. for me that equals design flaw. the rims work great but the axle is sh*t.

    Dude, that sucks. I've used the Mavic bolt on through axle that is a consistent thickness the whole length and I haven't had any problems. Hopefully your local Mavic dealer is taking care of you, but I would imagine you're beyond frustrated.

    Damn man you must have force powers in your legs. I have folded on over on a bad landing but just blew up the wheel never broken the axle.

    If you decide to say F t and want to sell the wheel set off for cheap PM me.
