Ultimate is not just a name, it’s the word we reserve for perfection and how we define this Wheel-Tire System. It was first introduced 10 years ago and quickly became the wheel choice for pro racers seeking a competitive advantage. With a NACA inspired 40mm deep, 25mm wide full-carbon tubular rim profile, 20 super-bladed spokes and high, thin carbon hub flanges, it offers a clear and proven aero advantage. It’s also ultra-stiff thanks to the unidirectional carbon fiber spokes that simply don’t stretch. These spokes run continuously from one edge of the rim to the other through the hubs (R2R technology) creating one single spoke instead of two, eliminating the need to mechanically attach the spokes to the hub. The rear rim is asymmetrical to improve the drive-side bracing angle, so spoke tension is balanced and the wheel stays stiff under the heaviest lateral loads such as sprints or attacks. The rim is made of 12k carbon fibers wrapped over a super rigid foam core. Full-carbon construction means the whole wheel is incredibly light at just 1250g. Our unique iTgMax technology delivers reliable and consistent braking performance in both wet and dry conditions. The system is delivered with Yksion Pro tubular tires, optimized for front and rear performance. The front uses GripLink with a tread pattern that improves water evacuation when leaning through corners and the rear offers minimum rolling resistance with grooves that release pressure on the ground but deliver plenty of traction in the rain thanks to the water evacuation channel. It’s no surprise the Cosmic Ultimate is pro’s go-to choice for the most challenging World Tour races.

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.

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.

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.

R2R

R2R

Lighter, stiffer, stronger
Rim to Rim. R2R spokes travelling from one side of the rim to the other through the hub.

iTgMAX

iTgMAX

Integral Glass Transition Temperature
iTgMAX consists in an inner rim bed finished with multiple layers of seamless carbon fiber to achieve a unique one-piece rim contour without cutting any fibers. The brake track is then finished with a laser machining to ensure the best braking efficiency
