Mavic Road Wheel Technologies:
TgMAX - Maximum Glass Transition Temperature: TgMAX technology consists in laying up several type of high technology resins, then fixing them using a proprietary heat treatment process to achieve the highest possible resistance to braking heat.
Consistent and efficient braking, whatever the climate conditions
The most reliable carbon rim, able to resist the highest abuse by the most brutal riders in the worst conditions
Rim Bead Insert: Enhances structural resistance to tyre air pressure + brake heat. High impact resistance thanks to isotropic properties of the alloy. Feather light alloy extrusion avoids the need for oversized/overweight carbon sidewalls and hooks. Ease of tyre mounting: use of tyre lever with no risk of harming the hooks
FORE: Stiffer and stronger Instead of being drilled, the lower rim bridge is pushed on the inside, then threaded to enable the spoke nipples to be directly screwed in it, leaving the upper rim bridge intact.
Rim is 4 times more resistant to fatigue stress
20% increase in the rim rigidity to maximize power transfer
