Mavic's ISM (Inter Spoke Milling) rims have extraneous material machined away between the spokes, resulting in an extremely strong and lightweight rim. The final product climbs faster and accelerates more quickly because of it.
Mavic's Maxtal rim uses 6000 aluminum, which is 30% stronger than 6106 aluminum. This allows Mavic to build lighter rims for quick acceleration.
Mavic’s Exalith 2 rim treatment is a 10 micron thick layer that actually penetrates the rim for exceptional fatigue strength and resistance to wear from braking. It strengthens the rim and spoke holes, and allows for lighter rim weights. Using the included black Mavic Exalith 2 brake pads, braking power and modulation is improved, especially in the rain.
Mavic's SUP rims boast welded and milled joints for superior strength and wheel balancing.
Mavic's Fore spoke threading technology utilises a threaded rim to create a system that is more resistant to fatigue and more rigid for high stiffness.
