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 1695g for the 27.5".
