Details

There’s something incredibly pure about trail riding: the feeling of exploration and the satisfaction of cleaning a technical section are hard to beat. It’s just you versus the terrain so you need gear that won’t let you down. The XA Light provides versatile comfort and control thanks to a new UST welded rim that’s wide (25mm internal), light and strong. It’s also Tubeless Ready, so it’s easy to enjoy the benefits of tubeless tires, including better control and traction along with a reduced risk of punctures. Double-butted spokes save weight without sacrificing strength or durability. We’ve also fine-tuned the hubs and power transfer with Mavic's alloy TS-2 freehub, which is compatible with all axle sizes as well as XD drivetrains. The hubs are compatible with most modern standards (15x100/12x142) and can easily be converted to other options (9x100 front, 9/12x135 rear) with optional adapters. The XA Light is available in either 27.5" or 29" wheel sizes.

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.
