Mavic’s Carbone 40 Elite wheels represent a revolutionary step forward in carbon clincher wheel versatility and reliability. Mavic has once again applied experience, creativity, and ingenuity to realize a different kind of carbon-aluminum hybrid rim design that maximizes the properties of each material according to their usefulness in a superlight, rigid, and aerodynamic wheel-tire system. One of the keys to achieving this was the perfection of their process, called TgMAX. TgMAX technology consists of laying up several types of resins, then fixing them using a proprietary heat and pressure treatment process to achieve the highest possible resistance to braking heat, a threat to carbon wheels of the past. A lightweight aluminum rim insert is integrated into the carbon layup to provide impact resistance and heat dissipation, properties that complement the tensile strength and vibration damping properties of carbon. This aluminum component also increases safety and reliability by making up a robust tire bead seat. This enhanced reliability and safety means that you can enjoy the benefits of an aerodynamic carbon wheelset with the everyday practicality of clincher tires.
Cosmic Carbone 40 Elite wheelsets come with Yksion Pro GripLink (front) and PowerLink (rear) tires to make a complete and harmonious wheel-tire system.
