In a perfect world you’d be able to grace your bike with a set of wheels that are lightweight, aerodynamic, stiff, easy to maintain, and can stop on a dime. Well, we may not live in a perfect world, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have the perfect wheel. Mavic has brought us the Cosmic Carbone 40 which utilizes TgMAX (Maximum Glass Transition Temperature) technology to provide consistent and efficient braking no matter the conditions. TgMAX consist of laying up several types of technological resins, then fixing them using a proprietary heat treatment process to achieve the highest possible resistance to braking heat. The TgMAX technology paired with the aluminum channel in the center which dissipates heat offer a wheel with the best stopping power ever produced by Mavic.
You might be wondering why we’ve talked up the stopping power before we’ve mentioned anything else. That’s because these wheels are fast, mea! The 40mm wind tunnel optimized profile, extra light carbon rims fitted with 190g Yksion Pro clincher tire, and carbon/alloy hubs with aero flanges slice through the wind for unrivaled aerodynamics. Now, it isn’t uncommon for deeper profiled carbon wheels which excel in aerodynamics, to compromise on weight. This is not the case with the Cosmic Carbon 40, as it weighs in at only 1545 grams for the set.
And what would a carbon wheel be if we didn’t talk about its stiff properties. Aside from the carbon profile and hubs, the Cosmic Carbon 40 includes fore drilling and integrated nipples, not only keeping everything else stiff, but making maintenance simple. Did we mention the Cosmic Carbon comes as a Wheel/ Tire system, meaning it comes with Yksion Pro Griplink tire up front and a Powerlink tire out back, which work in sync with the wheel build to provide optimum cornering confidence, speed and durability. Whether you’re all about grand prix racing, mountain climbing or long distance endurance adventures, the Mavic Cosmic Carbon is the most versatile aero wheel. Not to mention it is one good-looking wheel!
