More and more riders seeking fresh challenges and an escape from the traffic are leaving roads and heading out onto rugged gravel and packed earth tracks. This provides the ultimate test of comfort and reliability for their kit.
The new system for roads or tracks
To meet this need, we’ve created a dedicated Wheel-Tyre System that combines comfort and reliability with stiffness and responsiveness. It’s equally at home on smooth paved roads or rugged gravel mountain tracks, and it weighs in at just 1620g.
One of the keys to it is Mavic's new ISM4D technology (Inter Spoke Milling 4 Dimensions). This removes material from the rim where it’s not needed but keeps it around the spokes where the tension is applied. This keeps the rim weight at an impressive 430g, despite the generous 19mm internal width.
