Someone uses these wheels? ...the question above is only one of the several dilemmas that I have for my lightweight bike project (click below):

My weight is 58 Kg. (127.8 lb.)
Comments and suggestions welcome

Greetings from Spain :D

Palmix,

I have not actually ridden either of de 2 wheelsets, but I have heard some excellent reviews about the crossmax SL's. Everyone who rides them seems to be very enthousiastic about them.

Apart from the stunning looks (Too bad they had to switch to their original 2002 hub, because of problems with the composite new one) and light weight, the biggest advantage is that you are able to run tubeless. Well... as a weight weenie, I would recommend running the Eclipse tubeless system with non-UST tires. You can still lose a lot of weight by swapping your Maxxis tires to Conti Twister Supersonics.The ceramic brake surfaces are another advantage. Mavic is widely available, so their replacement parts are easy to get. Servicing the hubs is very easy too, I hear.

Check out TUNE wheels too! If money is not your biggest limiter, these are probably the lightest you can safely go. How about 1405 grams for the "light" version and 1310 grams for the "superlight"!

Thanks for your reply JK. I know TUNE wheels and I've considered that option, but it seems that every TUNE hubs uses normal flanges for bent spokes:

For me the straight spokes system is the best, I've used a Pulstar rear hub with that system for many years and now I'm riding Mavic's Crossride wheels, and these are really great wheels -excepting the rear hub-

:D
