New Crossmax SLR: 1100 gr/pair

While the current Mavic Crossmax SLR wheels are no boat anchors, there are a few options for lighter XC wheels nowadays. The venerable french king of wheels is aware of that and intends to close the gap. According to a french blurb on their website, Mavic will have special SLR's with a low weight of 1100 grams per pair for their sponsored olympians next August.

So are the tubular prototypes we have seen in this year's World Cups the new light wheels or will they remain clinchers? Maxtal rims? Carbon rims? TraComp carbon spokes like the road R-Sys? Let's hope we mortals can benefit from the new technology, whatever it is.
