Consistent and stable spoke lacing

Designed with features and technologies that are typically reserved for premium race wheels, Aksium delivers quality performance for everyday road riding. Features include straight-pull spokes for added strength and stiffness, and lightweight rims for a lively ride quality. The rims are now wider, which allows for increased air volume and a better fit for larger diameter tires (up to 32mm). The hubs are incredibly tough, delivering high mileage with no servicing needed. And the QRM bearings are the smoothest in the category. This all adds up to a wheelset that delivers the high-quality ride that Mavic is known for.
