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.

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.

      Comments about Mavic Aksion 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.

        Comments about Mavic Aksion Tire:

        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.

        Comments about Mavic Aksion Tire:

        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.

              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
