Details

After extensive wind-tunnel testing, Mavic delivers the Cosmic CXR 80, the choice of numerous WorldTour squads and fast riders everywhere. The 80mm-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 80 is it's nearly seamless transition between tire and brake track thanks to a special aerodynamic fairing. That tire is a 290-TPI polycotton tubular 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. The wheel is silky smooth and stiff, too, thanks to the near-frictionless QRM+ hub and a solid hub/fork interface. And of course, Mavic never sacrifices ride quality or weight for aerodynamics, so the CXR 80 accelerates like a shot and climbs 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.
