This proven hybrid alloy/carbon Wheel-Tire System is super-efficient on flat and rolling terrain and now has a lower weight along with the awesome braking power provided by Mavic's Exalith braking technology. Exalith is produced with a chemical treatment that reinforces the rim profile, making it less prone to wear on the brake track. It reduces braking distance by 18% compared to a traditional alloy rim in both wet and dry conditions. The rim is engineered with a smart blend of alloy and carbon and has an aerodynamic NACA profile (45mm deep, 25mm wide) for low drag and reliable crosswind stability. The carbon adds lateral stiffness for instant acceleration, and the aluminum brake track produces reliable braking performance with a stable platform for clincher tires. Mavic's exclusive Maxtal alloy and ISM (Inter Spoke Milling) technology saves weight without sacrificing durability. A new patented aerodynamic spoke shape saves additional watts, and the rear hub features Mavic's Instant Drive 360 freewheel system for snappy engagement, super smooth bearings, and high durability. The system includes a 25mm Yksion Pro Griplink tire up front, optimized for grip, and a Yksion Pro Powerlink rear tire for efficiency and acceleration. Both have specific tread patterns to optimize performance grip in all conditions.
