    I bought a set of Mavic Crossmax SL wheels for a lefty, but they are expensive. I also bought the Maxxis Crossmark LUST tires that are considered a fast rolling light weight UST tire.
    You can find a set for about $700 new with UST tires. Check out Ebay, I have seen the crossmax wheels go on sale several times.
    Woodman makes a front lefty hub also, if you want to have a wheelset built.

    Ha! Funny. Avant is french for "front". xxcycle is based out of France (one of the only suppliers of Zefal spare parts). You were looking at only the front wheel price, hence why it seems so cheap.

    Cheers!

    How much abuse can the Crossmax SL wheels handle? I have a brand new set, still waiting to complete bike build, and I wanted to set up bike as like as possible. Can these wheels handle 2-3' air jumps and drops? Thanks,

    IMHO, they are a very sturdy wheelset. I've run these on my 2003 Blur since new (2003), and I've not had to even true the wheels yet! I'm between 140-150 pounds, but I ride hard, and do drops of that size. However, if you're looking for a lighter wheelset, there are plently of them for sale. The SL isn't the lightest wheelset on the market by FAR. However, they are relatively light, and very strong.
