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 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-specific Yksion Pro GripLink 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 infused with silica on the sides for excellent cornering grip.
Mavic's GripLink front tire is a dual-compound tire designed to offer superior cornering traction in all conditions. The rubber on the shoulders of the 195-gram tire has added Silica for great steering precision.
