The reference rim for high performance wheel building. Open Pro is the latest version of Mavic "Open" rims, and as such is the most advanced evolution. Optimized up to the limit of material potential, Open Pro is probably the best road rim available.
Mavic Open Pro Road Racing Rim Technologies:
Maxtal: Exclusive to Mavic. An aluminum 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.
CD: Couche Dure. This process creates a micro surface hardness of the rim. It slows down braking wear and improves its durability.
Mavic Open Pro Road Racing Rim Specifications:
Recommended tyre widths: 19 to 28mm
Valve hole diameter: 6.5mm
Recommended nipple length: 12mm
ETRTO compatible size: 622 x 15

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Fantastic quality rim
Build quality is superb, the grey/green anodising is perfect. There was no left over machined metal rattling around inside the rim, like other brands I have used. Rims were true from out of the box and made for an easy straightforward build. The built up wheels remind me so much of the GP4/MA40 rims I used way back when....

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous A single drop of oil inside and out on the eyelet will sort out the creaking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Nice but noisy
Easy to build and stayed pretty true. I loved them for the first 2000 miles. If I could get rid of the creaking of the eyelets when I put more than 100psi in the tyres I could love them again.
