New 29er Wheel.

I just got the offical word from Mavic that they will be producing the Crossmax ST in 29er in the near future.

In the 26" version it is lighter, cheaper and stronger than last years Crossmax SL.

The 26" is $750 so the 29er should be right around there. This wheel will most likely be UST too which will be a 1st for 29"..

I am happy about this wheel for sure.

How wide will the rim be? Could be an interesting choice for a burly cyclocross wheel perhaps? :hmmm:

Although it'll likely be disc-only, right? Nevermind...

probably only be around 21-22 mm. bugs me how narrow some rims are. don't think i could run less than 28mm in good conscience...

I too think that 28 is a good place to start.

I just spoke with My Mavic Rep.

He said that it will in fact be UST and that Hutchinson will have a UST tire by the end of the summer.

He also said that the wheel is basically a 29" Crossmax ST.

The ST's I have here in the shop measure 24mm.
