Light and reliable, now with a wide rim for improved ride quality and comfort the Aksium Wheelset is Mavic's entry level wheelset giving you access to the road performance akin to the Mavic brand.
Mavic ouzes quality at every level of their production. The Aksium Wheelset is no different sporting high quality QRM cartridge bearings, a pinned rim joint with H2 reinforced drilling and straight pull spokes. Using straight pull spokes has its benefits as they are typically stronger than J bend spokes giving you greater wheel stiffness for a quicker ride.
Developing from previous versions Mavic have increased the rim width to accomodate wider tyres to improve rider comfort. Combine this with a contained total weight and consistent and stable spoke lacing you have the ideal wheelset for training or commuting.
Force Transfer System Light uses the reinforcement of key transmission components: the contact area between the pawl and the hub body is reinforced by 2 stainless steel inserts, which allows the use of a 100% aluminium hub body.
Qualité de Roulements Mavic (QRM). Mavic only uses high quality sealed cartridge bearings. On QRM wheels, they feature double sealing (2RS or LLU) together with tight C3 internal clearance.
