Multipatented ISM4D brings rim weight and inertia to a level that is out of reach of our competitor, for unsurpassed climbing and descending abilities.
Strong and stiff
Fore drilling makes for a solid rim/spoke connection while ensuring high rim stiffness and perfectly sealed rim bed for simple tubeless compatibility.
Isopulse lacing ensures high stability and lateral stiffness.
UST Tubeless Ready
Traction, control and lightweight.
The UST concept improves traction, control and comfort while reducing inertia and flats.
The "tubeless ready" construction results in a lighter tyre for improved performance.
Inter Spoke Milling 4 Dimensions.
An exclusive Mavic patented concept, ISM 4D significantly reduces weight and inertia without compromising durability. Quicker accelerations, better handling and more resistance ; the right mix to make the most of any ride. The smooth profile also helps reducing aerodynamic drag.
Stiffer and stronger.
Instead of being drilled, the lower rim bridge is pushed up on the inside, then threaded to enable the spoke nipples to be directly screwed in it, leaving the upper rim bridge intact.
Stronger and smoother joint.
Soudé Usiné Process. After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish.
Light and strong.
Exclusive to Mavic, this specific aluminum alloy offers a higher strength to weight ratio than conventional 6106 alloy.
Qualite de Roulements Mavic +
Our most demanding level. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system.
Optimum energy transfer.
The spokes are laced radially on the drive side and crossed 2 on the non drive side to maximise drive side dish, thus providing a better spoke tension balance between left and right flanges.
Force Transfer System Light.
Reinforcement of key transmission components: the contact area between the pawl and the hub body is reinforced by 2 stainless steel inserts, which allows the use of a 100% aluminum hub body.
Usiné Brut Control .
The braking surfaces are precisely CNC machined.
Yksion Pro UST
Low rolling resistance and extra speed.
No more friction between tyre and tube.
New exclusive 11 Storm compound reaches the best balance of grip and low rolling resistance.
