  • FTS-L: Force Transfer System Light. Reinforcement of key transmission components: the contact area between the pawl and the hub body is reinforced by 2 stainless steel inserts, which allows the use of a 100% aluminum hub body: The entire hub is extremely lightweight and strong Greater efficiency due to better transmission of efforts on the entire wheel.
  • QRM: Qualité de Roulements Mavic. Mavic only uses high quality sealed cartridge bearings. On QRM wheels, they provide high durability thanks to double sealing (2RS or LLU) as well as high efficiency thanks to C3 internal clearance (low play, tight tolerances).
  • Self Lock: The special shape of the spoke end, on the thread, makes it impossible to loosen.The spokes stays tightly screwed into the nipple, no tension loss is occuring. As a benefit, the wheel keeps its original roundness for a long time and does not get out of true.
  • H2: Hammer Hardening. Local strenghtening of the rim in the area where the spokes exert the greatest stress. This improves rim's life expectancy and resistance to micro cracking.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tyre ++ The wheels have no problems after 10K km. Ok, that's "normal". Just to say that compared to wheels of 20-30 years ago, these are cheaper, better in aerodynamics and stability, no need to adjust. The tyres : I can't believe that : back tyre was cut (glass on the road) but front one has now 12'600 km !! and still looks ok. To compare : Michelin Pro 3 5000km back wheel - then appaers the protection on one place; Continental 4000 : 5500 km and still looks well. My conclusion : compared to 20 years ago, wheels and tyres last much more + more stable. I was used to reach around 3000 back and 5000 front. 15 June 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Wheels Just changed to these as rims on old wheels were worn and bearings on blink... Improved response on acceleration and great improvement on rolling today on club ride. Great budget buy... 10 March 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by mediocri Ruote robuste ,per uso commuter,adatte per mtb evolute con ruote da 28 ,buone per l'inverno,il coefficente d'inerzia non è particolarmente favorevole,come per shimano rs20 o rs30 nella stessa fascia di prezzo, quindi se cerchi ruote per allenamento serio vai oltre.Unica nota positiva il peso,per ruote entry level. 01 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I have used these wheels for about a 1000 miles now and they are running great, they have made a huge difference to my bike with an increase in speed and reduction in weight 06 October 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth and quick Took these on a 3 day charity ride as my first upgrade for my 8 yr old Giant TCR. Coped brilliantly with some dodgy surfaces and heavy rain and ran really fast. Tyres as supplied seemed to grip just as well as my Continental 4 seasons even in the wet. Overall a fantastic buy! 26 June 2012
