Mavic is celebrating their 125 year anniversary, and to mark the occasion, a limited edition series of products will be released starting at the end of May. The wheel you see above is part of the Ksyrium 125 Wheel-Tyre System. In addition to the wheel set, there will be a limited edition bib short and jersey. Mavic has a long history in cycling, and I am thrilled to see this release. Following is an excerpt from the press release.
This is a special year for Mavic, as it marks the 125th anniversary of the company’s founding as a bicycle parts business in Lyon in 1889. To mark the occasion in style, officials from the company and special guests created a special event in France. Few organizations in cycling can claim such a long and storied history as Mavic, so in addition to hosting a 2-day event tracing the company’s history at various locations in France, Mavic has released a suite of limited edition products to commemorate the historic milestone. The 125 anniversary products include a Ksyrium 125 Wheel-Tyre System and a matching HC 125 jersey and bib short.
