The XA Elite was born to meet the needs of adventurous trail riders to push the limits on challenging terrain. Lightweight, strong and engineered to deliver confidence and control, it boasts purpose-built features for off-road performance. The first thing that sets this Wheel System apart from the competition is its rim. It uses Mavic's patented ISM 4D technology to remove all but the most necessary material. This means snappier acceleration and a more dynamic ride quality. A new wider (25mm internal width) rim features UST technology so it’s easier to experience the improved traction and control of tubeless tires. The rims are laced to Mavic's proven QRM hubs for smooth, dependable performance no matter how rough the conditions. The ITS-4 freehub delivers fast engagement to further enhance the dynamic feel. The entire wheel system weighs an impressive 1770g for 29".
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminates the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire bead. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
