Durable and reliable traction

Mavic Crossmax mavic

The Energy Grip Terra outsole makes up the bottom of the Crossmax. This rubber compound is durable and dulls the impact of each step. Enhancing the traction is governed by the Contragrip innovation. It is the outermost layer that makes contact with the ground, preventing slippage even on wet conditions.

Mavic Crossmax clips

The Crossmax uses a 2-hole cleat system. It is compatible with clipless mountain bike pedals like the Nukeproof Horizon CL, the Crankbrothers Mallet E LS, the Look X-Track En-Rage, the Shimano PD-M820, to name a few.

Mavic Crossmax: Impressive power transfer

The outsole of this pair of cycling shoes has an Index Energy Transfer of 40 out of 100. It doesn’t bend when pedaling, but not too stiff that it will make walking uncomfortable.

Can withstand abrasion

A leather-like material forms the outer layer of the Mavic Crossmax. It keeps the form of the upper for reliable support and protection against the elements.

Comfortably breezy

Heat dissipation is made possible with the presence of mesh panels and perforations on various parts of the top. The interior is also lined with mesh fabric, amplifying temperature and moisture control.

Easy closure

Locking the foot in is the Quick Lace system. Push the button on the toggle to adjust its position then release it to secure the laces. The top of the tongue has a fold. It serves as a garage where you can tuck in the excess lace and toggle.

If the Quick Lace mechanism doesn’t give you the lockdown you need but otherwise love the Crossmax, check out the Mavic Crossmax Elite. It uses the same materials and technology but employs the Ergo Dial QR and the Ergo Straps. They allow for a more customized fit.
