The Cosmic name represents that perfect balance between aerodynamics and weight. It’s about producing more speed on the flats while minimizing weight for the climbs. This all-new Cosmic Elite takes those qualities to the next level with Mavic's UST Tubeless Road Technology. Removing the tube reduces friction and allows you to run lower tire pressures with less worries about punctures. That makes it both faster and smoother, even on rough roads. It’s also engineered specifically for disc brakes, with steel-bladed straight-pull spokes that are stronger than traditional J-bend spokes, which are connected to Mavic's strongest hub platform running on smooth QRM bearings. Mavic's extensive wind tunnel testing led us to create a 30mm deep rim that optimizes aero performance and improves stability in crosswinds. The thickness of the rim wall is carefully tuned to hit the sweet spot between stiffness, strength and weight. Pedaling torque is efficiently transferred with Mavic's FTS-L freewheel system—light, smooth, stiff and easy to service. This hub easily converts from Shimano/SRAM to Campagnolo cassette. The Cosmic Elite Disc comes with Mavic's Yksion Pro UST tires, which deliver a very low rolling resistance to further enhance the efficiency of these wheels.
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire bead. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
