Details

Built for performance on adventurous terrain, this new wheel system features an extra-wide 40mm internal rim width that’s optimized for plus-sized tires. Lightweight and strong at just 1900 grams per pair, it offers amazing traction and control combined with snappy acceleration and a dynamic ride quality. The rim is engineered with Mavic's patented ISM 2D technology to remove all but the most necessary material. The wheelset features UST tubeless 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. Compatible with Boost standard, the wheelset comes with UST valves, rim tape and Mavic tire sealant for tubeless setup.

Tubeless Rim/Tire Cross-Section

Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.

Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.

UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire bead. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
