Mavic Aksion Tire

Mavic Aksion Tire

The Aksion is the perfect all around tire, great for road racing and training. The Aksion features a light yet flat-resistant 66TPI casing and a safe yet durable 65 shore A compound. Shaving 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. Throw them on your bike and feel the difference!
  • Intended Use: Road cycling
  • Folding Bead

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.

I use these as spare backups but recently had to swap them out as my old tires gave up the ghost. Much as the other reviews have stated, these tires are very time consuming to install. I hope they last a long time because I am not looking forward to trying to remove these tires. I have been happy with the traction and wear so far, although I will need more miles on them to provide an accurate reflection of their overall performance over a long period.

Even with the installation issues, I would still recommend these as a spare tire because of the cost benefit, just be patient when installing.

    I live in Colorado where goat heads are prevalent on the bike trail. My Cannondale has the original Mavic's on it with 2,400 miles and no flats!!! Awesome tires at a great price. Thanks Mavic.

        I've had these tires for a couple of months. So far far they have performed well. No flats, normal wear. I bought these at a great discount am I'm extremely happy with them. I will purchase more for my other bikes when
        needed. I did not find these tires particularly hard to install like other reviewers state.

            My new road bike came equipped with these tires, along with the Aksium rims. So far, almost 4K miles on them and zero flats. I have 23C width, and keep them pumped to 120 psi. Just rotated them last week and looks like I could easily get at least another 1K+ on them. Saw these on sale at a great price and picked up a pair for when the time comes-decided to try the wider 25C. They roll nicely, and were easy to remove & install when I rotated them. At 66 tpi, not the most supple or lightweight choice, but I prefer durability over a smoother ride. An excellent choice for a training tire...

                  For most cyclists, tires should get you from point A to point B and back again. A combination of light weight, durability, traction and low rolling resistance are nice if you can find it in a lower priced tire. This tire does a pretty good job, but it is prone to flats.

                    I am not riding the tire for long so all i can say it rolls super fast. No flats so far with enough pressure. Only time will show durability.

                    Anyway, people where commenting on how hard it is to get these tires on. I did not really have any issues with that. Yes if you have a flat on the road and no levers around it is pretty much impossible to get this tires on or off.
                    At home with a good lever (Pedros) it was absolutely no big deal as long as you d it right.

                    Start with puting the tire into the deepest spot on the rim opposite the valve and the popping it over the bead with a little help of the lever for the last 5 inches or so right by the valve.
                    Just to make sure because of all the negative reviews I took it back of right away again. Taking all air out, pushing the sidewall into the deepest spot of the rim, the recessed area in the center and than putting the lever in right by the valve. One time yanking on the lever and of it was again. Absolutely no drama for me.
                    BTW, I am running Mavic Ksyrium Aniversary wheels.

                    freaking awesome tire considering the current sales price.

                    I purchased these tires in March of 2014 I think. I have only ridden them for 700 miles and they are splitting and separating all over, splitting at the side walls and in the middle of the slick tread. This is a second chance for these tires as I purchased a set of these tires last year that were returned with less than 500 miles with the same problem. I will not purchase another set of these tires. I am only 180 lbs and not a masher.
