This carbon clincher is for riders who value versatility above all else. The 40mm deep rim profile delivers an aerodynamic advantage while being one of the lightest and strongest in its category. It excels on flats, rolling hills or mountain roads. To achieve this balance, we engineered a new carbon rim that weighs just 460g – superlight for its 40mm depth. We did it by using a superlight alloy insert on the rim bed that also acts as a cooling system. Braking efficiency has always been the weak point of carbon rims, but our exclusive TgMax technology uses a special brake track surface that shortens braking distances in wet conditions by 50% compared to our closest competitor. The spokes are securely attached to the rim using our unique Fore drilled inserts to avoid drilling on the rim. This keeps the rim strong and stiff. The hubs roll on smooth QRM+ bearings with an adjustable preload so they stay smooth over time. And the FTS-L freewheel system transfers power to the ground in the most efficient way possible. The front wheel comes with our Yksion Pro Griplink tire that offers great grip, especially in wet conditions, thanks to a water evacuation channel on the tread pattern. On the rear wheel the Yksion Pro Powerlink tire provides maximum rolling efficiency with a supple 127 TPI casing, soft nylon anti-puncture belt, and a tread pattern optimized for efficiency and speed in all conditions.

GripLink

GripLink

Grip and control
A front tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to hold the ground and control the bike. Therefore, GripLink tyres are optimized for front use, by offering a superior grip and extra puncture protection.

QRM+

QRM+

Qualité de Roulements Mavic +
Our most demanding level. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system.

PowerLink

PowerLink

Low rolling resistance
A rear tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to transfer power and generate speed. Therefore, PowerLink tyres are optimized for rear wheel use, by minimizing the rolling resistance.

FTS-L

FTS-L

Force Transfer System Light
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% aluminum hub body.

TgMAX

TgMAX

Maximum Glass Transition Temperature
TgMAX technology consists in laying up several types of high technology resins, then fixing them using a proprietary heat treatment process and an aluminum colling insert to achieve the highest possible resistance to braking heat.

Fore

Fore

Stiffer and stronger
Instead of being drilled, the lower rim bridge is pushed up on the inside, then threaded to enable the spoke nipples to be directly screwed in it, leaving the upper rim bridge intact.
