Mavic is rolling out their first carbon clincher, the Cosmic Carbone 40 C. To avoid any problems with heat build-up from braking, there is an aluminum spline to hold brake and air pressure. The wheels weigh 1545 grams for the pair, a very respectable weight for a 40mm rim. I look forward to seeing these on the road. Also, Mavic has released their new Spring/Summer range of clothing and helmets. There are some really good looking pieces to check out.
