Thanks for the tip, Dan. Looks like those intrepid folks in the mtbr forums took a pic of a new Mavic 26" mountain bike rear disc wheel, labeled 'CrossMax SLR'. You know only good things come from SLR monikers. The CrossMax SL's were introduced in 2003 as a "Super-Light" successor to the CrossMax wheelset. Not the lightest wheelset available at the time, but they were pretty darn stiff and light enough for most. The SLR promises to be an even lighter version of the SL, making many wonder what the 'R' could possibly stand for. Any ideas? Hmmm, let's see... CaRRRRRbon hubs? KevlaRRRRRR spokes? Black and lighter are definitely the themes at Mavic for 2007. All owners of black bikes rejoice! Black is...um, back!

Read forum thread here.

Update: These new wheels were spotted being tested in Canada, eh!

    No problems... More info on the SLR and the rest of the line-up can be found at singletrackworld.com. Seems there is much more than just the new SLR for 2007, even the SL has lost some weight, many new wheelset at lower price points too and most importnatly, the freehubs are supposedly improved and longer lasting. Freehubs were the negative point of Mavic wheels, let's just hope the new one is indeed better.
