Aerodynamic and high performance thanks to its 23 mm aero shaped profile, CXP 33 slice through the air, while its Maxtal alloy keeps its weight low. SUP welded and eyeleted, CXP 33 is also very strong and durable.
Features: • Maxtal • SUP • Traditional drilling • UB Control • Profiled eyelets • Aerodynamic profile • Clincher
Dimensions: • ETRTO compatible size: 622 x 15 • Recommended tire widths: 19 to 28 mm • Valve hole diameter: 6.5 mm • Recommended nipple length: 14 mm • Recommended rim tape: 622 x 18 x 0.6 • Weight: 470 grams
Technologies: • Maxtal: Exclusive to Mavic. An aluminium alloy that is 30% more resistant than a 6106 alloy, for lighter and stronger rims. • Sup: Soudé Usiné Process. After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish. A welded and milled rim joint is extremely strong, eliminates shuddering when braking, and offers superior wheel balance. • UB Control: Usiné Brut Control. The braking surfaces are milled to improve braking friction and eliminate shuddering.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lbalc LIght and strong
These rims were recommended to me for being solid (for heavy riders) and reasonably light, which is perfect for fast commuting. I have them in 32H on a Dura-Ace front hub, with Sapim DB Race spokes. The whole set up is one for strength over lightness. I have some CXP-22's and these in comparison are lighter and more aerodynamic. Better braking surface than the CXP-22's. Mavic recommend fairly low tension on setup on there rims (700-900NM), but after doing some blog research, I went for 1200NM; they have stayed true in 3 months of riding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Ive been riding CKP 33's for the last 8 years very strong and light, with just th right amount of flex for all sorts of roads,, the only down fall is getting replacement rims, I ride a 700cc rear and 650 front and the 650 is hard to get hold of

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Tough, reliable rim
I've always been impressed with CXP33 as other rims tend to crack around the eyelets in my experience. These however have lasted for years. The ONLY big disappointement is one of finish. As mavic have stopped making the silver colour which I both prefer and are in much more keeping with my bikes style and colour. It's a shame Mavic don't even make them for special order as I would be willing to pay extra for my much more suitable silver option.
