Mavic Cosmic Carbone 40 C

Mavic’s new Cosmic Carbone 40 C wheelset is interesting. Having 40mm deep rims they are aero enough that you’ll notice a speed gain and they can be used every day without too much side wind wobble. Pretty much the perfect fast set of wheels for all around use and with external spoke nipples you can hopefully fix them by the roadside. This kind of wheel isn’t cheap though and these Mavic’s cost over £2000. There’s a lot of choice out there for that much money, factory built or handbuilt, some lighter, some faster but either way it’s interesting to see how they are made and why they’ve been created. Here’s Mavic’s film explaining just that:

  • Proper path riding
  • Waiting to go. Hoping the postman brings new bolts for the front mudguard tomorrow.
  • Do I? A few duff parts though for the money compared to competitors.  @iamspecialized #tarmac2015 #tarmac #specialized
  • Some @thewonderfulsocks came in the post today. #sockgame is getting stronger at Headset Press
  • The day started off great, a mechanical means I'm getting the bus home.
  • There's a tunnel up ahead, can't believe a train used to run through here. Been past it loads and not noticed this huge tunnel
  • Adam at @cycleexif with his Swinnerton shortly after finishing the ride @eroica.cc @eroicabritannia #eroica #eroicabritannia
  • Off for a long slow ride tomorrow. Will be going through some tunnels and need a light, decisions! Can't beat the little volt 300 on the right. The 1200 is brighter than a light house.
  • Climbing at Eroica. What a ride @eroica.cc @eroicabritannia #eroica #eroicabritannia
