Maxtal: Exclusive to Mavic. An aluminium alloy that is 30% more resistant than a 6106 alloy, for lighter and stronger rims.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rider1 Great rim for some serious trails, could be slightly wider
I built these on to Hope Pro 2 evos with double butted spoke and DT swiss locking nipples and they have stayed perfectly tensioned and true for the past year. I use these for all day trail riding, but my local trails include fairly decent sized gap jumps, 4 - 5 ft drops etc and these have held up perfectly, even after 2 or 3 proper dodgy cases. I would perhaps like these to be a little wider to help tyre profile like the 521's, however in the trade off of width against weight I went with the lighter and so far so good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Dissapointing CRC
I just bought a pair of these from CRC. I have always used Mavic rims, they have always been strong and reliable. However, these were only what I could describe as seconds, or poor quality copies. They are going back to CRC.. as I feel ripped off!
Firstly the decals are the old style, not the revised type as in the picture. Also the side walls are poorly machined, leaving a razor sharp edge which had rubbed against the other rim in transit removing the black coating. They are definitely not worth the £42.99 each.
