The Exalith carbon wheel-tyre system reinvented to be lighter, more dynamic and with improved aerodynamics.


GripLink - 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.

SUP - Stronger and smoother joint. Soude Usine Process. After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish.

PowerLink - 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.

QRM+ - These cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system.

Exalith 2 - High braking performance. The Mavic exclusive Exalith 2 technology for aluminum rims has been refined to provide a very high level of durability and braking performance in all weather conditions.

Instant Drive 360 - The new Instant Drive 360 freewheel system is super light and fast to engage with only 9 degrees. A large contactless rubber seal provides low friction, while a wide array of end caps makes it super versatile.


The best balance of low frontal drag and crosswind stability

45mm deep NACA profile brings low drag in any conditions.

25mm external rim width perfectly integrates the 25mm tyre giving you low drag and easy crosswind steering.

Patented elliptical spokes enhance aerodynamics.

Perfect efficiency and low weight

17mm internal rim width offers low rolling resistance with 25mm tyres, giving you low friction and fast engagement .

The Instant Drive 360 freewheel gives you a fast and smooth ride.

Whole wheelset weighs just 1650g, keeping your climbs fast.

Features Exalith treatment for optimal braking efficiency and a distinctive look

Braking distances that are 18% shorter than average in wet or dry conditions.

Reduced rim wear gives them extra longevity and a full black look that lasts for thousands of kilometers.
