This proven hybrid alloy/carbon Wheel-Tire System is super-efficient on flat and rolling terrain and now has a lower weight along with the awesome braking power provided by our Exalith braking technology. Exalith is produced with a chemical treatment that reinforces the rim profile, making it less prone to wear on the brake track. It reduces braking distance by 18% compared to a traditional alloy rim in both wet and dry conditions.
The rim is engineered with a smart blend of alloy and carbon and has an aerodynamic NACA profile (45mm deep, 25mm wide) for low drag and reliable crosswind stability. The carbon adds lateral stiffness for instant acceleration, and the aluminum brake track produces reliable braking performance with a stable platform for clincher tires. Our exclusive Maxtal alloy and ISM (Inter Spoke Milling) technology saves weight without sacrificing durability. A new patented aerodynamic spoke shape saves additional watts, and the rear hub features our Instant Drive 360 freewheel system for snappy engagement, super smooth bearings and high durability.
The system includes a 25mm Yksion Pro Griplink tire up front, optimized for grip, and a Yksion Pro Powerlink rear tire for efficiency and acceleration. Both have specific tread patterns to optimize performance grip in all conditions.

- User guide
- GripLink: Grip and control. A front tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to hold the ground and control the bike. Therefore, GripLink tyres are optimized for front use, by offering a superior grip and extra puncture protection.
- SUP 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.
- PowerLink: Low rolling resistance. A rear tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to transfer power and generate speed. Therefore, PowerLink tyres are optimized for rear wheel use, by minimizing the rolling resistance.
- QRM+: Qualité de Roulements Mavic. Mavic only uses high quality sealed cartridge bearings. On QRM wheels, they feature double sealing (2RS or LLU) together with tight C3 internal clearance.
- ISM Inter Spoke Milling. An exclusive Mavic patented concept, ISM involves the machining of the lower bridge of the rim between each spoke hole to create a light and rigid rim without reducing the durability of the rim.
