The newly developed Mavic Aksium Disc wheelset for use with rim brakes including the FTS-L freewheel body and the 22 mm high and 22 mm wide Aero rims. Thanks to the 17 mm inner width, the rims are designed for a tyre width of up to 32 mm, which ensures versatility, comfort, riding safety and strong traction. The wheelset system impresses with the optimum mixture of S6000 aluminium and an unbeatable price/performance ratio.
In addition, the specially matched spokes together with the fitted rims, which are specially designed for disc brakes, achieve good values for rigidity and stability. This creates an optimal addition and makes the Aksium Disc the top wheelset for beginners or hobby athletes. The Aksium Disc wheelset also impresses with its round spokes. 24 pieces are installed at the front and rear wheel. Mavic also uses the newly designed hub with the FTS-L freewheel body, which has two stainless steel inserts in the freewheel body. Equipped with the Mavic QRM - durable, double-sealed industrial bearings, which make the hubs a low-maintenance and trouble-free component of the Aksium Disc wheelset.
The decisive freewheel components are specifically reinforced: at the contact surface between pawls and hub body with two stainless steel inserts - so the hub body can be made of 100% aluminium. This allows higher efficiency thanks to better power transmission and they enjoy a lightweight, robust hub design.
Industrial bearings of this quality are only available in Mavic hubs. For QRM impellers with double seal (type 2RS or LLU) and extremely small tolerances. This enables maximum efficiency thanks to minimum bearing clearance and extreme dimensional accuracy - resulting in an enormous longevity.
