The reference Disc rim for all extreme MTB riding. Its double eyelet and SUP welded join provides it the necessary strength to withstand the most aggressive use. 36 mm wide, it allows the most demanding riders to ride the largest tire on the market.
Dimensions: • ETRTO compatible size: 559 x 29 • Recommended tyre widths: 2.30 to 3.00 • Valve hole diameter: 8.5 mm • Recommended nipple length: 12 mm • Recommended rim tape: 559 x 18 x 0.6 • Weight: 675g
Technologies: • Maxtal: Exclusive to Mavic. An aluminium alloy that is 30% more resistant than a 6106 alloy, for lighter and stronger rims. • SUP: Soudé Usiné Process. After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish. A welded and milled rim joint is extremely strong, eliminates shuddering when braking, and offers superior wheel balance.
Rated 3 out of 5 by MK11 not suitable for downhill
I'm not a heavy rider, I weight only 70 kg (155 lbs) and I'm riding with 30 psi (2 bar) in tires. However, I've been able to brake two of this rims on my rear wheel in two years. Also two of my friends have broken this rims in same conditions. I wouldn't recommend to ride rocky tracks on this rims.

I have used the 36h version of this for over 25 runs of fort william and have never had to true the wheel. It has also suffered zero dents or cracks.
I would definitely buy this rim again>

Have been riding with these for three years on all kinds of terrains and never needed to true them! The wide inner width sizes up your 2.4 & 2.5 tyres. They can hold up true and spotless even in the gnarliest of rockgardens at bikepark speeds. Bombproof rim with only the price of added weight.
