700c, 27-Inch & 650c
A favorite for everyday road training and racing, this versatile wheel system produces a lightweight, dynamic ride quality that now has the added benefits of Mavic's UST Road Tubeless technology. This patented system provides seamless integration between the wheel and Mavic's new Yksion Pro UST tubeless tires that makes installation, removal and maintenance easier than ever. And you get all the benefits of tubeless, including less rolling resistance and a smoother, more controlled ride quality. Without tubes, you can run lower tire pressure without risking pinch flats, and the sealant helps prevent punctures. The rims are engineered using Mavic's ISM 4D technology and now feature a wider design (19mm internal/23mm external). ISM stands for Inter Spoke Milling, a unique process that trims the thickness of the rim wall between the spokes to create a rim that’s lighter but still very durable. To reinforce the front wheel for disc brakes, Mavic increased the spoke count to 24. The hub is compatible with a 12mm thru-axle, 15mm thru-axle or quick release. The rear wheel uses 24 straight-pull spokes laced to Mavic's lightweight, fast engagement Instant Drive 360 hub mechanism. Delivered in 12x142, it can be also converted to regular quick release. It’s compatible with Shimano or SRAM cassettes and can be converted to Campagnolo or SRAM XD-R.
The Cosmic Elite is a perfect entry point into high-level race performance. This all-new UST Road Tubeless system delivers a smoother ride with and improved puncture resistance while retaining a lightweight feel for climbing and accelerating. By removing the tube, we’ve also removed friction—so there’s less rolling resistance, which means it requires less energy to reach higher speeds. The UST system, including the sealant that makes them more resistant to punctures, is also 40g lighter than a traditional tube and tire system. It also delivers a proven aero advantage: Wind tunnel testing led us to create a 30mm deep rim that optimizes aero performance and improves stability in crosswinds. The alloy rim benefits from Mavic's unrivaled experience creating light yet strong rim extrusions. Mavic does this by carefully tuning the thickness of the rim wall to hit the sweet spot between stiffness, strength and weight. Pedaling torque is efficiently transferred with Mavic's FTS-L freewheel system, which is light, smooth, stiff and easy to service. The hub easily converts from Shimano/SRAM to Campagnolo cassette. The Cosmic Elite comes with Mavic's Yksion Pro UST tires, which deliver a very low rolling resistance to further enhance the efficiency of these wheels.
