When Mavic calls a wheelset entry-level, you can take that to mean high value AND high quality. The Crossride Disc 29er Wheelset was designed in conjunction with pro riders from Orbea, Cannondale, and Luna, so these wheels aren’t any kind of bargain-basement junk—they were developed by the pros.

Mavic’s Crossride 29-inch wheels were designed with several important design innovations to ensure performance. The first is Mavic’s Self Lock spoke system. Specially shaped spoke ends ensure that the nipple can’t loosen itself, so the wheels stay in true longer. To ensure durability, Mavic also used its H2 hammer-hardened rims that are strengthened where the spokes experience the most stress.

Mavic included innovations away from the rim, as well. The hub uses Mavic’s top-shelf QRM cartridge bearing that feature a protective double-seal and C3 internal clearance to nearly eliminate bearing play. The freehub is Mavic’s FTS-X with strengthened pawls, self-locking axle screws, and friction torque reducing seals.

The Crossride wheelset is also part of Mavic’s MP3 extended warranty program. This warranty provides you with two years of almost unlimited no-fault protection from Mavic. Please note that MP3 coverage must be purchased within 5 days of the date you receive your wheels.

Can I mate these with my 2.5" Maxis Minions, or are these rims too narrow? Thanks!


Great UpGrade Wheels for Cheap

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

The best way to make a bike from Good to Great is to upgrade the wheels, I put the Cross Ride on my Townie and it really makes for a great ride. The Light weight and stiffness of these wheels makes the bike roll with ease. Most people don't realize how much better a nice set of wheels improves their ride quality.

For the set I just received, the front hub is a 15mm thru axle (no adapter for 9mm QR). Also, backcountry does not carry the necessary adapters.

The rear hub is a 12mm thru axle but does include adapters for quick release and the appropriate skewer.

So "out of the box" these wheels can be run with 15mm front axle only, rear can be 9mm QR or 12mm TA.

The comments below indicate these wheels...

The comments below indicate these wheels have a front axle of both 9mm QR (Kyle Smith 12/15) and 15mm TA (Adam D 10/08). Can you confirm which it is?

Can these wheels also be used with cantilever...

Can these wheels also be used with cantilever brakes? What is the maximum rider weight rating?

I have a 2014 Giant Trance X 29er 1. From Giant, it has:

Hubs: Giant Performance Tracker Off Road, sealed, [F] 15mm axle, [R] 135x5mm QR

Will these wheels (at the $179.40 price point) work?


The option at that price point comes stock with a 9mm quick release front hub configuration and for your bike you would need a 15mm that would require the Mavic 15mm Front Hub Adapter (MAV0440).

I need to know what size you're getting...

I need to know what size you're getting for the 'one color, one size' option that is $179.40.

[front] 9 x 100, [rear] 10 x 135


15mm front, 9mm QR Rear

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

If you want to convert the rear to a 12x142 you need item MAV000A

Hi. what�s the difference between the one for $ 179.40 and the one at $ 324.95. I need 15 mm front and 142 rear, can I purchase the ones at $ 179.4 and use some adapters for the rear wheel?

Thank you

Hi Alejandro,

Here's a link for the 12 x142 rear adapter. NOt in stock at the moment, but give us a call to order and we can backorder a set for you.


Great Value

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought these wheels mainly for the price, I have Easton EA90XC on my 26" bike but didn't want to spend that kind of money on my first 29er. Damn!, these wheels seem lighter than the Eastons and they roll forever. Would have been a steal at the regular price. I highly recommend these for anyone doing light to medium trail riding, they'd probably handle more though. GREAT DEAL BackCountry... Thank you!

Ride On,



Great bargain

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

This wheelset is a great value for the money. I've used it out a couple times now. Climbs quick. Light in the rims. Cushy all around.

Can I set this up with tubeless tires?

Can I set this up with tubeless tires?

Its not UST so not officially. It is possible to use a Stan's tubeless kit but the clincher hook isn't designed for tubeless.

This is a set. the front is 15mm and the rear is 9mm QR. We don't have the adapters at the moment for a 9mm qr front.
