For 2007, Mavic is giving the consumer more options with new wheelsets for every type of rider out there. As we speculated before, the new CrossMax SLR's are the top of the line XC specific wheelset in both V and disc brake versions. For the V-brakes, the SLR's have caRRRRRbon fiber hubs and aluminum and titanium parts to reduce this race wheelset down to a weight of 1410g claimed. The disc wheelset will retain the alloy hubs and more spokes with a weight of 1520g claimed. Look for the red spoke. Mavic keeps the CrossMax SL line as a slightly heavier and whiter XC wheelset (with a yellow spoke). The CrossMax ST version (pictured above) is rated as a long distance mountain wheel. The subtle laser-etched logos and black color give this 1660g disc wheelset a stealthy look. Rounding out the CrossMax line is the CrossMax SX, a freeride, heavyduty disc only wheelset. If those aren't enough choices for you, below the CrossMax are the Crosslands, Crossrides, and Crosstrails each with V or disc brake versions.

Can't wait to see the new carbon paired-spoke road racing wheels, Rouesartisanales.com eluded to previously.
