Mavic's Cosmic Elite UST wheelset is based on 17mm wide and 30mm high rims that balance aerodynamics and crosswind stability with stiffness and weight. Thanks to tubeless compatibility, further advantages open up such as more puncture resistance, less rolling resistance, and a lighter wheel. Quick-release hubs with sealed cartridge bearings and 20 steel spokes front and rear are used.
UST Road Tubeless technology provides lower rolling resistance and more speed, allows lower tire pressure
Smoother ride and reduced risk of punctures
Aerodynamic hub design
Reinforced rim base for enormous robustness
UB-Control brake flank
Rim joint welded (SUP)
Replaceable sealed QRM cartridge bearings
Conventional rim drilling
ASTM category 2: for use on roads, maintained dirt roads and gravel roads (on Touring and Cross Country bikes) with jumps up to a height of 15 cm
SUP means Soudé Usiné Process and creates a much more stable and smoother rim joint. The rim joint is welded and then milled over to achieve an even braking surface. SUP prevents any brake judder and facilitates spoking and centering of the wheel.
UB Control stands for Usiné Brut Control. Brake tracks that are stripped afterward ensure better braking efficiency and prevent unpleasant brake jerking.
QRM stands for Qualité de Roulements Mavic. These are cartridge bearings of the highest quality, with double seals (of type 2RS or LLU) and extremely low tolerances. Thanks to minimal bearing play and extreme precision, extraordinary efficiency, and enormous durability are achieved.
FTS-L is the abbreviation of Force Transfer System Light. The crucial freehub components are specifically reinforced, namely at the contact surface between the pawls and the hub body with two stainless steel inserts. The hub is extremely light and robust. This results in higher efficiency thanks to better power transmission.
