Mavic XA Pro Carbon Boost Wheelset - 29in

Not traditionally a major player in the rowdier recesses of the dirt world, Mavic's shaking up its aluminum-loving, Lycra-clad reputation with the introduction of the XA Pro Carbon 29in Boost Wheelset.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
