The Mavic EX721 is about as good as good gets, in general terms of awesomeness. In fact, on the completely subjective scale of awesomeness rating one to ten, these probably come in at around a 9, maybe even a 9.2 if you stretched. (One point deduction for the difficult to read decals emphasizing subject model name design subtraction.) But on a more relevant scale of objectivity, the Mavic EX721 probably comes in closer to a ten. Riders contacting us commonly are concerned about weight, rim width, tire compatibility, live-ability (easy of tire installation). I can tell you that the Mavic EX721 is concerned with none of these things, it’s totally awesome!
We’re building these EX721’s with Shimano XT 6-bolt disc hubs. Now I know, I know you’re about to say, “what about if I have a 15mm TA QR fork?” Well let me tell you, we’ve got it covered! Now there’s an option to select either a front QR or 15mm TA QR hub, both are 6-bolt disc compatible. The rear hub is still only available as a 135mm QR option, contact us if you’re looking for something, ahem, shall we say “more in the now”?
There’s no spoke option to select from. That’s because we’re already building these with DT Swiss Competition spokes. Competition spokes are great, about as good as spokes can get until you spend a whole boatload of money. As far as nipples go, there’s brass for livability, alloy for some flare.
