The name Cosmic stands for the perfect balance between aerodynamics, light weight and top handling characteristics - i.e. more speed on flat ground and light-footed climbing characteristics.
This mixture makes it the ideal entry into the world of high-performance wheels. And from now on, Cosmic Elite Disc riders will also benefit from the advantages of Road UST tubeless technology and a wider rim profile for even better aero performance and handling qualities.
Intensive wind tunnel tests have ultimately led to a 30 mm high and 23 mm wide NACA rim profile with maximum aero performance. And the wheel benefits from our many years of experience in the development and manufacture of lightweight, sturdy aluminium rims.
Mavic specifically designed the rim wall thickness so that they hit the "sweet spot" between stiffness, strength and low weight - for high riding dynamics and light-footed climbing characteristics. The SUP-welded rims are each spoked with 20 straight aero spokes of steel, which are stronger in tension than conventional curved spokes.These spokes are combined with Mavic's most stable hubs, with super smooth QRM bearing, extra robust axles and bearing support (Mavic patent).The pedal force is put on the road without loss of power thanks to our super-efficient FTS-L freewheel system, which is light, smooth, rigid and easy to maintain. And the HR hub can be easily converted from Shimano/Sram to Campagnolo cassettes with 9, 10 or 11 sprockets.The Cosmic Elite Disc is now Road UST tubeless compatible - for even higher roll-off efficiency, riding comfort and puncture protection. It comes with the Yksion Pro UST tyre. With their 127 TPI carcass, they weigh just 260 g (in 25 mm width) and roll off extra easily - the perfect complement to the aero qualities of the wheel.
Front and rear wheels are designed for 12 mm thru axles ex works. Of course, they can be converted with optional adapters for quick-release. And they are optionally available for 6-hole brake discs.
