- Is the Mavic 717 the same as the ZTR flow
Not even close.
The XC717 is Mavic’s ‘lightweight’ XC rim, 17mm internal width. The Flow has been raced at DH world cups!
The Flow is marginally heavier, but a far far far tougher rim. The 717 is rather antiquated now, Stan’s rims are about 20% lighter for equivalent strength/use – the Crest and the Alpine are closer comparators to the 717.Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Mavic rims are made out of aluminium.
Stans are made out of the compressed bits of fluff from the bellybuttons of baby rabbits.
Which is why they ding and dent so easily.
Stan was also the first and yet only adopter of the 26.1 wheel standard.
Which makes the trail come alive, but makes some tyres a very tight fit.
In fact, it has been prophesied that the when the son of God walks among us again, he will be identifiable because he will be able to fit a Schwalbe Marathon with just his bare hands.Posted 4 years ago
