After extensive wind-tunnel testing, Mavic delivers the Cosmic Carbone 40 C, the choice of numerous WorldTour squads and fast riders everywhere. The 40mm-deep carbon rim uses bladed steel spokes to achieve one of the more aero wheels in the peloton. The aero prowess is matched by the silky smooth, near-frictionless QRM+ hub and a quick-engaging FTS-L freebody. And of course, Mavic never sacrifices ride quality or weight for aerodynamics, so the CC40 accelerates like a shot and climbs better than most standard wheels out there. Adding to all that, Mavic's rear-specific Yksion Pro PowerLink tire is a supple 127-TPI clincher for sublime ride quality with serious durability. It uses a fast-rolling, long-wearing center tread with softer rubber on the sides for excellent cornering grip.
|Mavic's QRM+ hubs offer low rolling resistance for more speed. Their sealed bearings promise smooth, low-maintenance operation for years of worry-free riding.||Mavic's FTS-L (Force Transfer System Light) ensures the cassette drive mechanism is lightweight and ultra strong.|
Mavic's PowerLink rear tire is a dual-compound tire designed to reduce rolling resistance and maximize power transfer.
