In a perfect world we would be able to grace our 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.
The Cosmic Carbone gets its speed from the 40mm wind tunnel optimized profile, extra light carbon rims fitted with a Yksion Pro clincher tire up front and PowerLink tire at the rear. 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.
