MAvic release a new rim, finally
ScottChegg – Member
I’d rather have Mavic than Stans, special nips or not.
All other things being equal I would too but with the 819s it adds about 60g so it’s a pretty big difference (819s end up being heavier than a Flow Ex IIRC despite the claimed weight being much less)
But yeah, depending on final weight, might be what I put on the big bike nextPosted 4 years ago
EN821 – wider than an 819, UST, looks strong, looks good.Posted 4 years ago

Is it actually 21mm internal? I’ve always thought Mavic were bestists and most dent resistant but I still cant fault my old Flows.
Yeah, Mavic have internal width as last 2 digits, with 1, 3, 5 or 7 as the position in the range, then 8 being top of the line and UST.Posted 4 years ago

Is the difference that big, when you take into account the weight of the standard nipples?
You need to use nipples with the Mavics as well. Basically you’ve got the rim, then the insert/ferrule thing, then the standard nipple. Not sure if this new one is the same, they might have figured out something more like the wheelsets.Posted 4 years ago
