Mavic XA Pro Carbon 27.5in Wheelset

We like stiff wheels while hammering, but wheels that are too stiff present issues beyond just comfort. Cushion aside, the lay up's real benefit to aggressive trail riders is that it helps maintain contact with lumpy terrain by absorbing impact through engineered flex, which means it bounces less and keeps tires glued to the dirt. That focus on traction, stiffness, and comfort is obviously well suited to a tubeless setup, and Mavic's UST design returns with some impressive developments. The most notable of...
