    • Mavic Deemax Ultimate MTB Front Wheel 2017

  • Mavic Deemax Ultimate MTB Front Wheel

    The Deemax Ultimate holds an iconic place in the history of downhill mountain biking. Developed with and used by some of the fastest racers on the world cup circuit, Deemax Ultimate is among the lightest of downhill wheels, taking Sam Hill to the top step of the podium twice during the 2014 season.

    Featuring Mavic's distinctive yellow paint, the alloy rim has been developed using their patented ISM weight reduction technology. This technology creates a central line of standard alloy thickness along the rim. This means the weight of the rest of the rim can be reduced to help acceleration and handling, while it stays just as strong – a key element in downhill.

    The spokes are steel made, double-butted and bladed, with 28 in the front, to cope with the huge hits that are part of racing the clock downhill. The ITS 4 freewheel system, with 4 poles and only 7.5° between engaged positions, reduces the time out of a corner to get back up to maximum speed.

    Deemax Ultimate is compatible with multiple axle standards and comes delivered with 20mm front (9mm and 15mm adaptors are optional but common to other wheels in the Mavic line up).

    Features:

    • Race proven, ultra light DH specific front wheel
    • Ultimate responsiveness and improved vertical compliance
    • Developed with and for DH World Cup racers
    • Weight: 910g (front, 26" without tyre), 930g (front, 650b/27.5", without tyre)

    Key Technologies:

    • ISM (Inter Spoke Milling): An exclusive Mavic patented concept, ISM involves the machining of the lower bridge of the rim between each spoke hole to create a light and rigid rim without reducing the durability of the rim.
    • ITS-4 (Instant energy transmission): Using 4 pawls working 2 by 2, Instant Transfer System 4 provides a more dynamic ride, thanks to a very fast engagement. Its versatility makes it compatible with all kinds of frame retention system.
    • FORE: Instead of being drilled, the lower rim bridge is pushed up on the inside, and then threaded to enable the spoke nipples to be directly screwed in it, leaving the upper rim bridge intact.
    • QRM+ (Qualité de Roulements Mavic +): Mavic's most demanding level. Cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance, and topped with a micro-adjustability system.
    • MAXTAL: Exclusive to Mavic, this specific aluminium alloy offers a higher strength to weight ratio than conventional 6106 alloy.
    • SUP (Soudé Usiné Process): After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish.
    • SRS (Spoke Retention System): The hub shell slots special machining makes sure that the spoke head is imprisoned and will not pop out of the hub. The spoke still can travel in the slot, in order to let the wheel absorb some of the terrain obstacles.
    • UST TUBELESS READY: The UST concept improves traction, control and comfort while reducing inertia and flats.
