Mavic’s Aksium wheels are a class-leading entry-level road wheelset ready to go many miles between maintainance. They use straight-pull, bladed spokes for high strength and great lateral stiffness, and employ QRM bearings that spin on Mavic’s elegant axle system, resulting in a very lightweight, stiff, and reliable wheel system.

Wheelsets and rear wheels are available with either Campagnolo or Shimano/SRAM-compatible 11-speed freehub bodies.

Mavic FTS-L Freehub Body

FTS-L

Force Transfer System Light:

Reinforcement of a key transmission component: the contact area between the pawl and the hub body is reinforced by two stainless steel inserts, which allows the use of a 100% aluminum hub body.

Mavic QRM

QRM

Qualité de Roulements Mavic:

Mavic uses only high-quality sealed cartridge bearings. On QRM wheels, these bearings feature double seals (2RS or LLU) along with tight, C3 internal clearances.

Mavic UB Control

UB Control

Usiné Brut Control:

The rim’s braking surfaces are precisely CNC machined for smooth, predictable braking and less brake chatter.

Mavic H2 Hammer Hardening

H2

Hammer Hardening:

H2 involves the local strengthening of the rim in the area where the spokes exert the greatest stress. This helps ensure rim longevity and resistance to stress fractures at the spoke holes, a common failure point in aluminum rims.
