Proud of its heritage, Mavic looks to the future with a commitment to manufacturing its products as close as possible to our HQ in Chavanod, at the foot of the French Alps. To support these ambitions, Mavic can count on two historic French competence centers.
Saint-Trivier sur Moignans (Ain), Aluminum Competence Centre
Chavanod (Haute Savoie), Carbon Competence Centre
At our headquarters in Chavanod, at the foot of the French Alps, we have unique resources dedicated to technological research and the creation of our carbon and composite products. It is in this French facility that our Cosmic Ultimate wheels are entirely designed and manufactured.
The adventure of these "Made in France" carbon wheels began in 1973 with the development of the first fiberglass lenticular wheel. In 1984, following extensive aerodynamic and materials studies, the first paracular carbon fiber wheels were ridden on track by the French team at the Los Angeles Olympics. Many Olympic medals were won in Barcelona in 1992 thanks to the new 3G wheel with three profiled spokes. In 1996, its descendant, the iO, became the most successful wheel in the world.
Today, the Cosmic Ultimate is manufactured in the same building that houses our design and development teams.
