Aksium Elite is an evolution of Mavic's Aksium wheel system, designed to increase its sporting capabilities on any kind of ride, while adding the benefit of Mavic's new Wheel-Tyre System.

Mavic upgraded the joint technology of the rim from a pin joint to a sleeved one. A sleeve makes a solid connection between the two rim ends instead of the two pins. The result is an impressive 40g weight saving per rim: close to 10% less rim weight. Although more expensive, this process is key to improving the dynamics of the Aksium, making it easier to spin, to steer and to climb with.

Of course, as part of our Mavic signature, it uses straight pull bladed spokes for improved stiffness and strength. And the hubs are still running on QRM bearings and our axle system, which is the key to smoothness and reliability.

Includes: Mavic Yksion Elite Guard (front) & PowerLink (rear) tires which offer a great balance of grip, rolling resistance and a low weight of only 245g in 25mm thanks to the supple 127 TPI casing, Kevlar beads and our well-balanced rubber compound.
