Product Description

Enter into the world of carbon wheels with the Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon Road Wheels. Combining an alloy braking surface with carbon rims makes the best of both worlds, and brings these wheels into a more budget friendly price point.

To keep the hubs lightweight, Mavic uses a carbon shell in front combined with aluminium flanges. The freewheel is steel for long term durability, and can be converted to Campagnolo standard with a freewheel sold separately.

The internal Maxtal alloy rim is bonded to a 12k carbon outer flange. The 45mm deep NACA profile rim section balances aerodynamics with climbing prowess, maintaining stability even in crosswinds. The rims are stiff and light, thanks to the carbon, transferring power effectively to the road.

With 16 spokes in front and 20 in the rear, weight is kept to a minimum. The double butted, bladed steel spokes add further aerodynamic efficiency and are radially laced in the front and have the Isopulse pattern in the rear.

The Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon Road wheels comes with Yksion Pro tyres in 25c size. The front tyre gets Mavic’s GripLink compound that offers excellent grip, while the rear has the PowerLink compound for super low rolling resistance. This gives a perfect balance between fast riding and cornering control.

  • For a longer longevity of the wheel, Mavic recommends that the total weight supported by the wheels don't exceed 120kg, bike included

Nice wheels until...

As mentioned before the bearings in rear wheel gone in 12mths...unable to change due to needing specific tool (Tredz do not supply) tool costs £60-£80 to buy...will have to purchase to enjoy the wheels again...but disappointed LBS don’t have tool available.

Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon wheelset

Bought these wheels 11 months ago, great out of the box fast, responsive and climbed well...11months down the line and bearings have gone in rear wheel. Simple change them you’d think!...until you try to service the wheel and realise you need a specific tool from Mavic costing £60 to remove bearings. Tredz and even my local Mavic retailer did not have this tool (its not the plastic one that comes with wheels by the way) so am currently waiting for retailer who have ordered one in from France. Warranty I hear you say!!...yer good luck with that!...won’t buy mavic again after this experience and will sell them on once fixed to avoid future troubles.

Look fabulous

I finally got my all time dream wheels. I was so happy when they arrived, I had a permanent grin on my face like the joker. Now then, they sound fantastic and look fantastic, but I was disappointed by 2 things. 1, the tyres. I think mavic should just sell the wheels and scrap the tyres all together. My main disappointment is that I have just found out that these wheels let water in if you get caught out in the rain. Apparently you can get it out by taking the tyre and rim tape off when you get home. But what good is it being 50 miles away from home and your wheels are full of water ? What sort of cycling is that? Mavic should be ashamed of charging best part of a grand for these wheels but you can't go out in the rain because the rims will full up with water. Well done. If I would of known about this before I would not of chosen a different wheel set. Apart from that they are good in the dry and feel really nice but living in England I will not be using them much as it rains more than it doesn't. Disappointed

Excellent wheelset

Very fast delivery from tredz and kept informed all the way. The first thing you notice about the wheels is the build quality, they are a fantastic. First ride in less than ideal conditions was amazing, the aluminium brake track gives supeb braking in the dry and wet. They ride like a wheelset costing twice the price. Would highly recommend these. Five stars all the way.

Road Bike Wheel Guide

 
 

Road Bike Wheels

Whether you are upgrading or replacing, a new set of wheels is the best way to improve the performance of your road bike. Lighter wheels will enable you to accelerate quicker and climb faster, stiffer wheels will improve cornering stability while aero wheels reduce drag, so you can slice through the air faster.

With different types of road bike wheel available, not all road bike wheels will be compatible with your bike. In this road bike wheel guide, we will look at the different wheel options to help you choose the perfect new 700c wheelset for your bike.


Types of wheel

Traditional rim brake wheels

Wheels that are designed for rim brake are the traditional road bike wheels. These wheels are easily identified by the flat braking surface on the edge of the rim. This is usually a different colour and/or texture to the rest of the rim. Traditional rim brake wheels have a 100mm wide front hub and a 130mm wide rear hub. These wheels are all compatible with QR or quick release road bike axle skewers.

Disc brake wheels

Disc brake wheels don’t need a braking track, so the rim has a continuous profile. Instead disc brake wheels have special hubs that the discs are mounted on. There are two types of mounting for disc rotors: six bolt wheel hubs have, as the name suggests, six holes that the disc bolts into, centre lock hubs have a ridged spindle that the disc slots into. While the front hub is the same width on both disc and rim brake wheels, the rear hub is wider at 135mm or 142mm for thru axle wheels.

Thru axles

While some disc brake wheels use traditional quick release skewers, many disc brake wheels use wider bolt-through (thru) axles. Thru axles improve the stiffness of the bike which is especially important for disc brakes as the braking forces are applied much closer to the axle. Thru axles on road bikes are usually 12mm in diameter with a rear hub width of 142mm. Quick release and thru axles are not compatible with each other, so it is important that you choose the correct type for your bike.


Clincher, tubeless and tubular

Most road bike wheels are clinchers. This means that the tyre grips the inside edge of the rim for a secure attachment when inflated. Traditional clinchers require an inner tube to stay inflated. Tubeless wheels are very similar to traditional clinchers but have an airtight seal over the spoke holes with a valve attached to the rim for inflating the tyre. Tubeless sealant is then added to the tyre to improve the airtight seal as well as automatically repairing punctures. Tubeless wheels can be used with regular inner tubes by simply removing the valve and sealant then fitting an inner tube. Tubular wheels are different and use special tyres that have an inner tube built in. These are the tyres that most pro riders use, but as the tyre is glued to the rim they are not practical for general cycling.

Free hub compatibility

The free hub is the part of the rear wheel that holds the cassette. There are two basic types on road bikes: HG (Hyper Glide) free hubs are the most common and are compatible with both Shimano and SRAM drivetrains, Capagnolo free hubs are only compatible with Campagnolo drivetrains. There are a couple of exceptions to this rule however: some gravel bikes, with one-by drivetrains, use mountain bike style XD cassettes, and some top-of-the range groupsets may also be different.

The free hub is the part of the rear wheel that holds the cassette.

Lightweight vs durability

Lightweight wheels are the best for climbing, but are still built strong enough for fast descending. Aero wheels, with deep section rims are a little heavier but slice through the air more efficiently so are best for rides that don’t have too many climbs. If you ride on rough surfaces then a more durable, endurance or cyclocross wheelset will give you a more confident feel and will last longer.

Lightweight wheels are best for climbing

Axles, rim tape and tubeless sealant

When you choose your new wheels, don't forget the extras you might need to go with them. If everything's compatible, you can of course re-use your existing QR skewers or bolt-through axles, but you might want to upgrade at the same time. Not all wheels come with rim tape to line the wheels with, so you might need to buy this as well. If you are upgrading to tubeless wheels, then you will need to buy tubeless sealant along with tubeless compatible tyres. Most tubeless wheels are supplied with valves and are ready taped.
