The Crossmax 29er (29 inch) XL WTS for sale. Strong enough to support aggressive riding, it remains light where it really matters. Featuring Mavic's proven technologies (see below). This sale includes Mavic Crossmax 29er Mavic Crossmax Roam and Quest XL MTB 29er tyres in very good condition (see picture attached). Included in this sale is the SRAM XG 1195 11-speed cassette. It has some mileage on it but still plenty of life left. RRP for both would be £950 so bag a bargain here. Below is tech talk from Mavic: * FTS-L: Force Transfer System Light Reinforcement of key transmission components: the contact area between the pawl and the hub body is reinforced by 2 stainless steel inserts, which allows the use of a 100% aluminum hub body. * POWERLINK: Low rolling resistance A rear tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to transfer power and generate speed. Therefore, PowerLink tyres are optimized for rear wheel use, by minimizing the rolling resistance. * QRM+: Qualité de Roulements Mavic + Our most demanding level. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system. * GRIPLINK: Grip and control A front tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to hold the ground and control the bike. Therefore, GripLink tyres are optimized for front use, by offering a superior grip and extra puncture protection. * UB CONTROL: Usiné Brut Control The braking surfaces are precisely CNC machined. * MAXTAL: Light and strong Exclusive to Mavic, this specific aluminum alloy offers a higher strength to weight ratio than conventional 6106 alloy. * SUP: Stronger and smoother joint. * 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. * GUARD: Strong & Safe The tyre casing is reinforced with an extra layer that helps reduce flats. * UST: Traction and control Universal Standard for Tubeless. Ready to ride tubeless system. The UST concept improves traction, control and comfort whilst reducing inertia and flats. * UST TUBELESS READY: Traction, control and lightweight The UST concept improves traction, control and comfort while reducing inertia and flats. The 'tubeless ready' construction results in a lighter tyre for improved performance.

Hope Tech V2 brakes with red vented rotors for sale. If you after some of the most powerful and overheating resistant brakes - this is your choice. These were my spare brakes so I have never mounted them on any of my bikes. The rotors were mounted on a wheelset and probably braked in my garden once or twice to adjust the alignment. The entire set is in a mint condition, almost like brand new. £375 plus postage (buyer pays paypal fees).
