Mavic Introduces It’s Fastest Wheel. Ever.

Take a look into the development process of Mavic’s new CXR 80 aero wheel set. The new wheel is the first to be designed in conjunction with a tire to specifically to function together as a unified airfoil in the wind. The shape and profile of each is specifically designed to pair with one another, and Mavic even designed a plastic blade that fits in a channel on the rim, serving to seal the remaining gap between wheel and tire. The result is a wheel that, according to Mavic, is faster than all of its competitors, at every yaw angle.
