Description: Highly appreciated in the world of high level racing. These high performance wheels are lightweight, lively and extremely rugged. | In addition, they are aerodynamic, and always comfortable. | It is lightweight, while maintaining the same level of stiffness : the lighter rim required a modification in the rear hub to maintain its stiffness. | A new appealing look that distinguishes them from the rest of the pack. | UCI Race Legal Wheelset.

The Review
Very nice wheelset... hasnt let me down... yet...
ill do another report after 1000km...

keep 'em adjusted and they will work fine... very easy to tighten the hubs as well... but dont lose that plastic wrench...

Strengths
Strong when spokes tuned and hubs tightened... Nice silver finish...

Weaknesses
The front hub loosened past 100km... also because where i stay the asphalt is really jialat... unlike Spore... but nothing a bit of hub tightening cant solve... spokes look abit scary light.. :)

The Review
Doing this review for a friend in the national team. The avg mileage for my friend is 100KM per week. If you are going to use it for looks then i think it will hold. Otherwise you should use this wheel only for racing and a strong wheel

Strengths
Great ride
Smooth
Does almost all the things it said it can do

Weaknesses
As this wheel is made for racing. The rim is too weak...it flex too much causing spokes to break easily.

They are the ultimate wheels for road racing. Great acceleration. However $1k is quite a bit to fork out for 2 wheels where you can get 4 wheels with tyres for a Honda Civic with the same amount of credit. =)

Strengths
-Stiff
-Looks Modern
-Aero spokes
-low rotating inertial
-climbs good
-Smooth hubs
-Light weight despite the presence of Aero/bladed spokes

Weaknesses
None ?

I dreamed of having the best Mavic wheelset and I have got it. Mavic is the leader in bicycle wheels. No doubt!

Strengths
- Elegant
- Looks fast without riding it
- Looks expensive
- The best hubs I ever known. Extremely smooth
- Extremely light
- Very well
- Great UB Control braking surface
- Aero spokes

Weaknesses
Perhaps side wind can cause problems to the rider. I have yet to ride on that condition as yet.
