Mavic Deemax Pro 27.5 wheelset review


BikeRadar verdict

"Strong, quality riding enduro wheelset that's unique in looks, build and rear rim width"

Highs: Smooth, unique ride quality; tough and durable; UST for easy tubeless; interesting looking and sounding

Lows: Narrow width; special tools needed for truing; proprietary spokes; loud freehub

Buy if: Riding with gravity is your focus, yet you still have to pedal; you want something unique, and don't mind a narrow rear rim

Anyone who was a fan of downhill racing in the early 2000s can likely conjure up images of bright yellow wheels smashing tracks under the fastest riders. Back then, Mavic's signature yellow was used for the bar-setting Deemax wheelset. Today, Mavic has expanded the Deemax line to include the Deemax Pro hoops aimed at enduro and all-mountain riding.
