Eurobike 2016: Mavic Wheels, Carbon Rims

by 0

It’s less than eight months since Mavic owner Amer Sports bought Enve. They were keeping the brands distinct at Eurobike, but Mavic wheels are starting to show up with Carbon rims, and new colour options beyond the default yellow too.

Edit, September 12th: Mavic have been in touch to emphasise that, while both owned by Amer Sports, Mavic and Enve are completely separate companies, and this includes both their R&D and production. Mavic have developed their carbon rims entirely in house.

You’ll pay a premium €1700 for that though. Insert your own monocle popping face and “You could buy a mountain bike/car/motorbike/caravan/etc. for that!” speech bubble if required.
Mavic Deemax Pro wheel - Eurobike 2016
The new, all mountain oriented Deemax Pro wheeset lacks the loud graphics of the Deemax DH, but gains a new front tyre: a 2.4 Claw Pro XL, designed to work with the 28mm internal width front rim. Rear wheel has an internal rim width of 25mm.

Full details of all these and more on Mavic’s website.

I think he’s thinking: “This new wheel range looks a bit retro”
