Mavic Cosmic Carbone Ultimate Road Technology:
R2R - Lighter, stiffer, stronger Rim to Rim. R2R spokes consists in a unique spoke that travel from one side of the rim to the other through the hub, which cuts spoke count by 2, resulting in only 1 spoke instead of 2.
Better aerodynamics: smooth integration of the spoke to the hub flanges
Lighter: carbon spokes are lighter than alloy ones
Stiffer: unidirectional carbon fiber spokes have a greater resistance to traction
Stronger: since R2R reduces the number of spoke in half, it cuts the chances of spoke breakage by 2
GripLink - Grip and Control A front tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to hold the ground and control the bike. Therefore, GripLink tyres are optimized for front use, by offering a superior grip.
The safest grip with great steering control: Dual compound “S ” with added Silica.
Hold the road in any situation: light and supple high density casing.
Reduced risk of flats: strong Nylon anti-puncture breaker.
Powerlink - Low rolling resistance A rear tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to transfer power and generate speed. Therefore, PowerLink tyres are optimized for rear use, by minimizing the rolling resistance.
Superior energy transfer, reduced rolling resistance and safe grip: Dual compound.
Improved drive: light and supple high density casing.
Higher durability and reduced risk of flats: Dual compound and strong Nylon anti-puncture breaker.
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.
Greater efficiency due to better transmission of efforts on the entire wheel.
Lightweight and strong hub design.
QRM - Qualité de Roulements Mavic Our most demanding level. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealled with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system.
Tight tolerances for high rolling efficiency.
Quick adjustment according to performance goals: precision "free" adjustment for maximum fluidity, or perfect high precision setting for all-weather rides.
