The access to the Mavic aerodynamic Wheel-Tyre System, now gets the added benefits of UST Tubeless and wide rims and is ready for disc brakes
The Cosmic name is all about the perfect balance between aerodynamics, weight and ride quality – to improve speed on the flat but also to keep weight down for the climbs. This balance makes it the perfect entry point into the world of high-level race wheels for many riders. The brand new Cosmic Elite Disc also gets the added benefits of road tubeless and a wider rim for enhanced aerodynamic performance and ride quality.
Continuous wind tunnel research and testing has resulted in a 30mm deep and 23mm wide rim that now complies with the NACA requirement for maximum aerodynamic performance. And as with all Mavic aluminum alloy rims, it benefits from Mavic's long experience of designing light yet strong rim extrusions.
Mavic do this by carefully tuning the thickness of the rim wall to hit the sweet spot between stiffness, strength and weight, so it remains dynamic and easy to climb with. These SUP welded rims are then laced with 20 (front and rear) steel bladed straight pull spokes that are stronger than traditional J bent spokes.
The spokes connect to the strongest hub platform, which runs on super smooth and strong QRM bearings, coupled with bombproof axles and bearing supports (Mavic patent).
Pedaling torque is integrally transferred to the ground thanks to the super-efficient FTS-L freewheel system, which is light, smooth, stiff and easy to service. This hub easily converts from Shimano/Sram to Campagnolo cassette in 9,10 or 11 speed.
Cosmic Elite Disc is UST Tubeless compatible for improved rolling efficiency, comfort and puncture protection. It comes with Yksion Pro UST tyres that are light at only 260 grams (in 25) and offer a very low rolling resistance, which perfectly complements the aerodynamic qualities of the wheels.
Lower drag and improved crosswind stability
New 30mm deep, 24mm wide NACA compliant rim profile.
Superior ride quality
Road UST WTS lowers rolling resistance and enhances comfort and traction.
17mm inner rim width with 25mm tyres for increased air volume.
Modern disc brake bike compliant
Comes ready for 12mm thru axle front and rear, but is convertible to quick release with optional adapters.

UST - Universal Standard for Tubeless
Universal Standard for Tubeless. Ready to ride tubeless system. The UST concept improves traction, control and comfort whilst reducing inertia and flats.
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.
- High efficiency thanks to low play and tight tolerances.
- High durability.
FTS-L - 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.
- Greater efficiency due to better transmission of efforts on the entire wheel.
- Lightweight and strong hub design.
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.
- Extremely strong rim joint.
- Eliminates shuddering when braking.
- Superior wheel balance.
UST Tubeless Ready tyre
