I've had them for 10 years and ridden Fort Mountain, Pinhote, Bear Creek, Tatum Gap all in GA and trails in SE TN and they have been pretty reliable. No cracks, dents etc...I'm looking for an upgrade but not sure I shuld spend the money on a new wheel set if these are still going strong.

Weakness:

Not sure. Maybe weight but the trails I ride need to be durable.

Product Quality. Warranty. Mavic Customer Service - Just plain sucks

Got these wheels last May 2011 ... put less than 400 miles on them when I notices what I thought was a broke spoke. Turns out it was a broken spoke receiver connection on the hub that had split where the straight pull spoke goes thru. No damage to the spoke, no evidence of stress ... just a cracked hub. Whoa?!? when did this happen? Man this sucks?

Ok no problem they are less than a year old ... and even though they were factory close outs and 2010s Mavic will honor the warranty - right?. Well ... Try to find any help from their web site. That does not exist. Try to communicate with Mavic direct and all you hear is crickets. So take the 1 hr ride to the nearest dealer. A few days later, I find Mavic will not honor my Paypal receipt from eDiscount Bike ... they questioned them as a seller too. NO WARRANTY HELP !!

Cost to have Mavic replace the hub ... $160 plus $30 shipping and down time of God knows how long. So I do a quick internet search and fine a New Ft Wheel same model year from Performance for $159 and free shipping. Duh ... yeah I'll take the new wheel thanks. At least I have replacement spokes / bearings / rim ... but like that will do any good if the hub splits again.

This will be My last Mavic Purchase Road or Dirt. Over all rating 3 Chilis for looks and a pretty decent weight. Value Rating 1 Chilis for just pure sucky quality control, workmanship, customer service and warranty - Come on ... Wheels are suppose to last more than 10 months under normal use. Next time I will go with something that has way fewer proprietary parts. You know ... normal spoke nipples, spokes, hub type, etc.

These wheels are fantastic! After tacoing my set of DT Swiss XR400/XTR race wheels, i figured it was a good idea to get some sturdy wheels to practice on. That was a great decision. These wheels feel really stiff compared to my superlight ones. They roll pretty well as well. I thought going from 1550 gram wheels to 1690 would be a huge difference, but really i dont notice it a whole lot. I have Wolverine 2.1 set up tubeless with them and they work excellent. The UST system is really nice. No hassling with tape or any of that nonsense. Once they lock into place, they are good to go. Also the 15 mm thru axle compatibility is a useful feature for if i ever want to get a fork like that. I was very impressed by how Mavic sends everything you could possibly ever need with the wheels. The wheels come with 6 bolt brake adapters, ust instruction manuals, 15mm adapters, spoke wrench, UST stems and wheel installation manual. The mavic service is truly amazing. Also with the blowout sale at HuckNroll for half off, they were one of the best deals i have ever gotten from a nonsponser company. I would definitely recommend these wheels for someone who rides hard and doesn't want to worry about truing wheels or breaking wheels. They are also fairly good for a low budget XC race wheel.

Overrated. Over priced. Lousy service from Mavic

This was supposed to be the last mt bike rim I would ever have to worry about. I ride a full suspension bike but was constantly breaking spokes and warping rims in the rear. This wheel was going to solve all that. Not so! It did last for about a year and took some good use but not abuse. After breaking a couple of spokes it was going to have to be rebuilt. Here's where the fun begins. The one year warranty ran out weeks earlier. No, I did not purchase the Mavic Protection plan.(That's only good for two years and you still pay for shipping). It looks like these wheels need repair once a year so the protection plan is sounding better. LBS #1 had the rim for a month and couldn't get Mavic to send them the spokes. They are the blade style. They sent the wrong spokes then refused to send anymore because "we sent you the right spokes". LBS #2 (a better bike store with serious Mt bikers). They have had the rim for a month as well and cannot make any headway with Mavic. No spokes. Come on! The kicker is they have this rim(2011) in their shop for sale. Mavic has lost me as a customer. Be warned fellow mt bikers.

Strength:

Lightweight, stiff, strong, very affordable.

Weakness:

Might be difficult to find a wheel guy comfortable with working on the wheels due to the spokes and spoke to hub interface.

I had a set of 2010 models and loved them, they were light, strong and UST. I got the 2011's on a deal with HnR and had a coupon so I bought the newer models as they had some improvements for the 2011 model. The 2010 only ran 9mm QR but for 2011 the front can be converted to 15mm and with some design tweaks they are 150g lighter than the outgoing model.
Honestly, is there a better wheel in this price range and weight?
I am a 230# trail rider and have had no issues, after spending about 9 months on the 2010 set I simply had them trued at my LBS and they are perfect, I will be able to resell them to cover much of the cost of the new 2011's.

Strength:

Light, 9mm and 15mm axle compatible, centerlock -> 6-bolt adapters included, inexpensive for UST wheels. Pretty nice looking for the most part. PRICE!!!

Weakness:

Not crazy about the logo, but those are stickers which can be pulled off. Freewheel is not loud, if that's your thing?

I only have 5 rides in on these new wheels, but so far they have proven to be stiff, lightweight, and smooth rolling. Even after some hard hits and riding around on the local rocky trails they are still true and the spoke tension is good. Only time will tell if this remains the case, although I expect to true a wheelset once a year the way I ride. Coming from a 2009 XTR wheelset, these feel every bit as smooth and stiff, but I'm sure the cartridge bearings will not last as long as the XTR cup and cone.

This is the only lightweight UST wheelset I've found for $300 that is compatible with both 9mm and 15mm axles. The 9mm adapters are just inserts that can be tapped out if you want to run a 15mm fork. It also comes with centerlock to 6-bolt disc rotor adapters. This is a HUGE plus for me, since I plan on selling these wheels in a year or two. Having those adapters means it will fit almost any potential buyers requirements. For the money, the only thing that comes close is the closeout XT's, but those only work for a certain axle type or a certain disc type.

I really like the way these wheels look, aside from the crosstrail logos which I don't care for. I do, however, like the aero straight pull spokes and silver machined areas between the spoke nipples. It really is a good looking wheelset.

They seated up tubeless perfectly with a floor pump on Specialized Purgatory 2.4 and 2.2 tires. I'm about 175 and running 22-24psi in the front and have had no issues with burping or a squirmy feel. Pretty impressive for a ~1600g wheelset.

Strength:

For the weight, this thing is bombproof.

Weakness:

A bit pricey.

This wheelset has lasted me for over three years without much trouble (I *finally* destroyed them earlier this year). There are more bombproof wheelsets out there, but I find that this wheelset strikes a nice balance between strength and weight. I would definitely recommend the Crosstrail for those who don't want to build a wheelset from scratch.
