Welcome to the Mavic website

Designed at the foot of the French Alps and built in our workshops, this exceptional wheel has been developed, tested and approved by the Mavic DH team riders on the most demanding World Cup tracks. The Deemax DH 29 features a 30mm wide welded rim specifically designed to absorb heavy impacts, shocks and other vibrations, providing maximum confidence on rough terrain. The Deemax DH 29 makes aggressiveness fun—and vice versa.

Laced with 28 J-Bent spokes in swaged steel, the Deemax DH offers the ideal balance between robustness and compliance for maximum performance on the most demanding descents. The spokes are designed to be easy to repair, so you can get back on the track quickly and avoid a tedious pit stop or the workshop. Each wheel comes with two replacement spokes for even greater peace of mind.

To meet the demands of the DH track the double Blackshield treatment offers two levels of resistance to impacts from rocks and scratches.

The wide rim shape makes it easy to fit DH tires with cross-sections between 2.0" and 3.0", giving riders exceptional versatility to adapt their tire setup to the conditions.

The ultimate downhill wheel, the Deemax DH 29 embodies Mavic heritage and innovation and is the ideal choice for any rider looking for top performance on the roughest descents. Choose total confidence in any terrain, with ease of maintenance and versatility as bonuses.
