Riders everywhere are discovering the freedom and fun of riding e-MTB. As the technologies in these forward-thinking machines progress, so must their components. That’s where the new E-XA35 Elite wheel comes in. Engineered to give pedal-assist trail riders the performance and durability they need to ride rugged off-road terrain, the E-XA35 combines Mavic’s unrivaled wheel-building expertise with new e-bike specific innovations including PFP (Pinch Flat Protection). The added weight and torque that’s associated with E-bikes demands a super-strong and durable wheelset. The E-XA35 Elite is built on a wide, lightweight and durable rim with a 35mm internal width. The rim is produced using our patented ISM 4D technology to remove all but the most necessary material, which allows for quick acceleration and a dynamic ride quality. It also features a unique asymmetric shape with the PFP sidewall to reduce the chance of flat tires or rim damage from rocks and roots. The wheels are UST Tubeless Ready so it’s easy to experience the improved traction and control of the high-volume tubeless tires (up to 3.2”), and laced with 28 straight-pull bladed spokes front and rear. The ID 360 freehub delivers fast engagement to further enhance the dynamic feel. The E-XA35 Elite is Boost compatible, and works with either Shimano or SRAM cassettes with an optional driver body.
