Mavic 2017 Aksium Disc Wheels 6 Bolt 9mm Quick Release Shimano Freehub Body - Wheels Only No Tyres
When it comes down to obtaining a good, reliable wheelset that’s not only high quality but also at a great value, the Mavic Aksium Disc Wheelset does more than enough to prove itself worthy. Whether you plan to use it for training or racing, it gets the job done thanks to its prodigious versatility that’ll suit just about any kind of riding you throw at it.
This year (2016), Mavic Aksium family of wheels see a wider rim to accommodate tires up to 32mm wide and also for increased air volume, while the straight-pull spokes provide the overall build with strength and stiffness. This provides for a more comfortable ride all the while keeping the rolling resistance low.
Also new to the Aksium family is the disc model you see before you. For the most part it shares the same DNA as its rim brake equivalent, with the exception of an increased number of spokes from 20 to 24 to handle the higher brake torque from the hub to the rim.
This wheelset is a disc brake specific wheelset with disc optimized rim profile and disc friendly spoke geometry and lacing pattern. The rim has also been made wider to allow for a wider choice of tyre dimensions. As well as this you get the usual high quality Mavic throughout, from the QRM cartridge bearings, to the straight pull round spokes and pin joint rim. Available in Black only, for Shimano or Campagnolo cassettes.
