2012 Dirt 100: Mavic Deemax Ultimate

It might seem a bit perverse to spend this kind of money on a set of wheels that you’re going to pummel down a DH track, but if you’re serious about trying to win then a pair of these mean you can tick another excuse off the list.

At 1965g they’re the lightest DH wheelset that we’ve ever used, and you really can tell the difference when you replace a heavier set with these. Of course anyone can make a light set of wheels, but these also happen to be some of the strongest that we’ve ever used. That takes quite some doing to pull off both those feats at once, but Mavic have done it. Throw in great hub reliability and tubeless rims and you really do have the ultimate set of DH wheels.

Price: 135mm £805.00, 150mm £850.00

    Is that price per wheel ? Very big OMG if it is..

    thats a set, the option you get is if you want a 135mm rear end or a 150mm. The front only comes in 20mm

    I have a set of these and love them but the thought of bending 1 makes me sick

    So light and amazing tubeless

    i could never justify spending this much money on wheels. unless they came fitted to a bike that cost only 3 grand like the canyon. which i have just ordered.
