Mavic Aksion Tire

The Aksion is the perfect race/ training tire. The Aksion features a light yet resistant 66TPI casing and a safe yet durable 65 shore A compound. Removing as much rotational weight to your bike makes all the difference when climbing steep hills. Therefore, Mavic kept these tires feather- light, weighing only 250 grams each.
  • Intended Use: Road cycling

    The Mavic Aksium is a Mavic private label tire made by Vittoria. It is similar to the Vittoria Zaffiro Pro which is a very durable and decent road tire but slightly heavy at 250 grams for 700 x 23. I did find that the Aksium is much more difficult to mount to the rim than the Vittoria so I would only recommend the Aksium over the Vittoria if you buy it at a great price difference over the Zaffiro Pro.

    Try putting these on any mavic wheel.

    I would not recommend this tire as a spare carry on ride tire.
    Also place aside a good 2 hours to install a pair on your bike.

    Nice for the money. Tough for some rims.

      Comments about Mavic Aksion Tire:

      I really enjoy these tires, which came as stock equipment on my Cannondale CAAD10-3. Good mix of traction, durability, and reasonable weight for training and general riding. They seem durable and appear to have reasonable flat protection (though more mileage is needed to confirm this).

      However, it was nearly impossible to mount these on the stock Alex rims that came on a 2008 entry-level Trek road bike. If you have similar Alex AT450 rims -- stay away! I removed the tires because they would be too difficult to deal with if I got a flat while riding.

      That said, the quality-to-price ratio on these tires was so good that I am keeping them anyway as replacement tires for my Cannondale (they work fine on the Mavic Aksium rims that they were designed for). I'll have to pickup a different set of tires for the other bike. Note, I purchased these way below MSRP.

        - My only complaint was you need to be super careful when using as a tube tire for pinch flats during installation of the tube.
        - Looks great
        - low profile

                  Comments about Mavic Aksion Tire:

                  Used as a training tire on clean smooth bike trails. After 4 months of light use and ~500miles tire is rotten and cracked. Tire is also prone to flats.

                  I bought this based on the reviews and the price.

                  I will be changing to Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick tires which I have used for years and have been excellent. The Rubino Pro Slicks are long lasting, very comfortable and I have yet to get a flat with them.

                        I bought a set of Mavic wheels that came with these tires. I have put about 300 miles on them since then. I have really enjoyed their durability and ride. My only complaint would be that one of my last rides I ran over a peice of metal and ended up ruining my tire.

                        I would recommend this tire to anyone who wants a good tire for a cheaper cost. It isn't a race tire by any means, but it sure seems close.
