The track version of Mavic's Comete has dominated for years. Now, time trialists on the road can reap the benefits of Mavic's Comete Road wheel/tire. It simply makes you faster with world-class aerodynamics at a weight that WorldTour riders demand. The lenticular shape of the wheel actually creates negative drag in some wind conditions, and the high-modulus carbon construction makes for quick acceleration. The tire is just as fast. Mavic's Yksion Pro Tubular PowerLink is a 210 TPI polycotton tubular for sublime ride quality with serious durability. It uses their PowerLink technology, which features a fast-rolling, long-wearing center tread with softer rubber on the sides for excellent cornering grip. Together they give you a system that sheds seconds off your best times.
Inter Spoke Milling:
An exclusive Mavic-patented concept, ISM involves the machining of the lower bridge of the rim between each spoke hole to create a light and rigid rim without reducing durability.
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.
Lightweight and strong:
Exclusive to Mavic, this specific aluminum alloy offers a higher strength-to-weight ratio than conventional 6106 alloy, allowing greater latitude in design while maintaining high strength and durability standards.
High braking performance:
The Mavic exclusive Exalith 2 technology for aluminum rims has been refined to provide a very high level of durability and braking performance in all weather conditions.
