After extensive wind-tunnel testing, Mavic delivers the Cosmic CXR 60, the choice of numerous WorldTour squads and fast riders everywhere. The 60mm-deep carbon rim uses bladed steel spokes and their own Yksion tire to achieve one of the most aero wheels in the peloton. The magic of Mavic's CXR 60 is it's nearly seamless transition between tire and brake track thanks to a special aerodynamic fairing. Those tires are 290-TPI polycotton tubulars for sublime ride quality with serious durability. They use a fast-rolling, long-wearing center tread with softer rubber on the sides for excellent cornering grip. The wheels are silky smooth and stiff, too, thanks to the near-frictionless QRM+ hubs, a solid hub/fork interface, and a quick-engaging FTS-L freebody. And of course, Mavic never sacrifices ride quality or weight for aerodynamics, so the CXR 60s accelerate like a shot and climb better than most standard wheels out there.
Mavic's CX01 rims utilize a variety of features to provide a smooth, aerodynamic profile that will make it hard for you to tell where the tire ends and the rim begins. Ultralight removable fins clip into the rim to create a seamless transition from the braking surface to the tire. Paired with the aero tread and shape of the Yksion tire, this system produces a perfect airfoil for ultimate speed.
|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 GripLink front tire is a dual-compound tire designed to offer superior cornering traction in all conditions. The rubber on the shoulders of the tire has added Silica for great steering precision.||Mavic's PowerLink rear tire is a dual-compound tire designed to reduce rolling resistance and maximize power transfer. The PowerLink also features a strong anti-puncture Nylon barrier.|
