CROSSMAX XL R 29
Leg-burning climbs, thrilling descents, jaw-dropping scenery and cold beers at the end of the day. These are the days we dream of, and this is the wheelset to help make it happen.

The new Crossmax Carbon XL R has what it takes to be your trusted partner for all your trail explorations. When it comes to carbon MTB wheels, there is such a thing as too stiff. That’s why the Crossmax Carbon XL R rim was developed around a low-profile shape that produces just enough vertical compliance to smooth out the ride quality without compromising the ability to climb and corner with efficiency and precision. The rims have an asymmetric shape and are 30mm wide, designed to perfectly fit and optimize the performance of any modern trail riding tire. The external carbon layer features our new UD² construction for a distinctive look and added durability.

We use 24 straight-pull spokes to further dial in the sweet spot between lateral stiffness and vertical compliance. The Infinity hubs feature a stiffer and lighter construction and are enhanced by the ultra-reliable ID360 double ratchet system for fast engagement. Weighing only 1595g, it’s a wheelset that lets you forget the trail and find your flow. It’s available with 6-bolt or center lock disc mounts and is compatible with Shimano HG9, SRAM XD, and Micro Spline freewheel bodies. The Crossmax XL R comes in 29” and ships with UST tubeless valves, spare spokes and accessories.
