Mavic’s Aksium Elite wheels are an advanced iteration of the Aksium wheel lineage, with smart features that uphold and even improve upon the time-tested formula. Mavic opted for a sleeved rim joint that replaces the pinned joint, an upgrade that increases strength and durability while shaving 40 grams off the weight of the rim. Aksium Elite wheels use straight-pull, bladed spokes for high strength and great lateral stiffness, and employ QRM bearings that spin on Mavic’s elegant axle system, resulting in a very lightweight, stiff, and reliable wheel system. While Aksium Elite wheels will work with a wide range of 700c tires, they are designed as part of a wheel-tire system that pairs specifically with Mavic's Yksion Elite Guard tires. The Yksion Elite Guard is a superb blend of serious grip with high cut and puncture protection. Its tread pattern improves water evacuation to perfectly complement its sticky rubber compound, and its casing is reinforced from bead to bead by a strong nylon protection layer, making it a perfect training tire. Wheelsets and rear wheels are available with either Campagnolo or Shimano/SRAM-compatible freehub bodies. All individual wheels and wheelsets are available with either 25 or 28mm tires.
Durability and liveliness: Rolf’s Elan Alpha wheelset has plenty of both. Tipping the scales at 1,315 grams, these resilient, 23mm-deep aluminum clinchers accelerate and climb with ease. The ultra smooth and stiff Rolf TdF5.5 ceramic bearing hubset is built with Paired Spokes, a titanium freehub, and Rolf’s patented Differential Flange Diameter to keep power transfer high. The spoke count at just 20 up front and 20 in the rear, which keeps wind drag at a minimum.
