This is our best 700c, rim brake touring wheelset. Mavic's A719 is the benchmark rim for trekking and touring. The joint is welded using Mavic's SUP Welding technology. The exclusive Maxtal alloy has a higher strength to weight ratio than conventional 6106 alloys. Machined sidewalls for positive, smooth braking and double eyelets for strength.
White Industries MI5 hubs are made to manage the demanding nature of off road riding and touring. The large 15mm oversized steel axle allows for additional rigidity at the hub which ultimately yields less flex and a higher load capacity often needed on the trails or when touring. The rear hub contains 5 sealed cartridge bearings, 3 tool steel pawls and uses a titanium freehub body.
