After extensive wind-tunnel testing, Mavic delivers the Cosmic Carbone 40 T, the choice of numerous WorldTour squads and fast riders everywhere. The 40mm-deep carbon rim uses bladed steel spokes to achieve one of the most aero wheels in the peloton. The aero prowess is matched by the silky smooth, near-frictionless QRM+ hub and a solid hub/fork interface. 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 front- and rear-specific Yksion Pro tires mate perfectly with the CC40s for natural symbiosis. The front-specific Yksion Pro GripLink tire is a supple polycotton tubular for sublime ride quality with serious handling. It uses a fast-rolling, long-wearing center tread with softer rubber on the sides for excellent cornering grip. The rear-specific Yksion Pro PowerLink is designed for speed and efficiency. Its rubber compound is fast and long-lasting, its nylon casing is strong and supple, and a Kevlar strip helps keep punctures at bay.
Grip and control:
A front tire, whether a clincher or a tubular, must enhance the front wheel’s ability to grip the road and control the bike. Therefore, GripLink tires are optimized for front use, by offering superior cornering grip and extra puncture protection.
Low rolling resistance:
A rear tire, whether a clincher or a tubular, must enhance the wheel’s ability to transfer power and generate speed. Therefore, PowerLink tires are optimized for rear wheel use, by minimizing rolling resistance.
Force Transfer System Light:
Reinforcement of a key transmission component: the contact area between the pawl and the hub body is reinforced by two stainless steel inserts, which allows the use of a 100% aluminum hub body.
Qualité de Roulements Mavic + :
QRM+ is Mavic’s most demanding level of hub and bearing precision. It uses only double-sealed cartridge bearings with C3 internal clearances and features a system for making micro-adjustments to bearing preload.
