Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions.
Dive into Mavic technologies and enter a whole new world of cycling (and understand all our acronyms). From the first aluminum rim to the invention of the tubeless system, we've never stopped improving. Thanks to its penchant for innovation, Mavic has left its mark on the history—and future—of cycling. Here are some of the flagship Mavic technologies influencing cycling today.
With our Fore technology, the connection between the spokes and the rim is secured by metal inserts embedded during the molding of the carbon profile. This patented system means that the lower bridge of the profile is not pierced. It also eliminates the need for rim tape to ensure a perfect seal (no loss of pressure) when tubeless, and makes tire changing a touch easier.
This one-piece carbon spoke runs from one side of the rim to the other, bypassing the hub axle to maintain continuity, and is three times stiffer than an aluminum or stainless steel spoke. Elliptical in shape and bonded to the hub using methods inspired by aeronautics, it is incredibly aerodynamic, strong and light.
Two layers of protection are added to the rim: first, a black anodised layer, which is then covered by a second layer to create a perfect matte finish. As a result, it is twice as resistant to impacts and scratches as a conventional wheel, and the rim remains black longer.
Available in a variety of sizes, designs and user interfaces, BOA® discs allow you to fine-tune the fit, for quick adjustments and optimum performance on the fly.
The workhorse of the BOA® Fit System, BOA® laces are extensively tested in the field and in the most demanding environments, and are expertly configured for precision and performance.
Lace guides replace traditional eyelets with a more efficient design. The function of BOA® Lace Guides is to minimize friction and distribute the tension evenly.
