These wheels are constructed to be very light with great rolling performance without compromising on strength or durability, Mavic achieved this by using only the highest-grade materials and precise machining to reduce unnecessary weight. Featuring an internal width rim width of 25mm that has a hookless tyre/rim interface, which provides the perfect tyre profile that optimises your tyres tread contact patch with the ground. This significantly reduces the chances a tubeless tyre setup from burping when running low pressures and losing pressure.
The addition of the Boost hub spacing increases this wheels strength and rigidity to the highest levels in the world of modern mountain bike technology. Boost spacing enables the hub flanges to be further apart, which in turn creates a wider foundation for the spokes to lace into; holding the rim true keeping the wheel running with a higher performance output over the roughest of trail conditions.
To ensure that the efficiency required by modern mountain biking enthusiasts is supplied, the Mavic XA Light is equipped with the TS-2 freewheel system. This effectively transfers the riders power output directly to the trail. This freehub design is podium proven and makes rides faster, smoother and more enjoyable.
These wheels feature intricate, high-performing technology. However, Mavic has purposely made it simple to service and maintain when the time comes to do so. The QRM cartridge bearings that Mavic wheels roll super smoothly and are perfectly sealed against the elements. The rims are ready to be set up tubeless thanks to the Mavic UST Tubeless Technology, which is the lightest and simplest way to get the most of the mountain bike wheels. The UST tubeless tyre/wheel setup provides many performance-enhancing benefits, such as providing better traction, more comfort, reducing the risk of flats and enabling the rider to run low tyre pressures that would normally cause a pinch flat to occur if using regular tubes.
The UST Tubeless concept improves traction, control and comfort while reducing rolling speed and the possibility of flats. The Tubeless Ready construction results in a lighter overall wheel setup for improved performance
This freewheel system features 2 pawls engaging simultaneously to provide the power transfer, this freewheel system is also fitted with an alloy axle that is light, stiff and offers multiple axles and dropout compatibilities.
This Mavic XA Light Boost XD wheelset offers exceptional performance and durability, which is due to the advanced technology used in their manufacture. For further information on the technologies listed above, you can see the Mavic Wheel Technology Chart and the Mavic Tyre Technology Chart where you will be able to read in more detail what is involved.
