2015 Mavic Cosmic CXR 60 Tubular Wheelset

Product Description

General Information

When Mavic came out with their Cosmic CXR 80 T wheelset, there was a lot of excitement among cyclists who want to get the most out of their aero set-up. But some just had to admit that a super deep dish like the CXR 80 was going to be a bit of an overkill in most everything except racing situations. So now with the Mavic Cosmic CXR 60 T, folks who are determined to cheat the wind as much as possible can enjoy all the benefits of the CXR 80s but with a slightly more versatile rim depth.

As with the Cosmic CXR 80 T's, what Mavic did for this wheelset is take a look at the wheel not as just the rim, hubs and spokes, but more as a joint venture that included these parts as well as the tire. It was revolutionary, but seems so intuitive now that they have done it. After all, just think what actually hits the wind first: the tire. The Mavic Cosmic CXR 60 tubular wheels have been designed with the exact tires in mind that you should be using, and will be delivered with them. Mavic has taken the guess work out of which tries to use with your wheels by creating their Yksion Pro GripLink for the front wheel and the PowerLink tire for the rear. And yes, they are specific about which tire goes on which wheel. The front GripLink is designed especially to enhance grip and reduce the chances of having a flat. And for rainy weather, its tread is designed to evacuate water to prevent you from wiping out. The rear tire, while also having a high resistance to punctures due to the use of a nylon anti-puncture breaker, has been developed to offer excellent energy transfer, reduced rolling resistance and safe grip due to its tread pattern. The tread pattern has also been developed to integrate seamlessly with the rim by virtue of the real game-changer in the design, which Mavic calls their CX01 Blades. The CX01 Blade is essentially a relatively rigid rubber flap that fits securely into a side channel on the rim so that there is no gap around the rim-tire interface. Smoothing the airflow over the leading edge as well as the trailing edge of the front and rear wheel. The results have been staggering, to the point where all their wind tunnel numbers smash the aero claims of other brands. You’ll be saving time at all yaw angles.

Made from 100% 3K carbon fiber with a carbon fiber brake track, the CXR 60 T are incredibly light for having this deep a dish. The rims themselves are 27mm wide, and have the special groove to accommodate the CX01 Blades. The rim depth of 60mm means that these are the sort of wheels that will work in a variety of situations while still giving you the aero numbers that you ideally want. You’ll be happy to find that they handle crosswinds extremely well. Whether climbing your local côtes, or hammering the competition in a Saturday night crit series, the CXR 60 T will feel snappy and solid and not sound like a wagon wheel rolling.

The spokes are steel straight pull, bladed, double-butted and come with aluminum nipples to keep the weight down. There are 16 radially laced spokes in the front wheel while the rear has 20 spokes, with radially laced non-drive side and cross-two drive side. The hub bodies are made with a carbon shaft and aluminum flanges to get the lightest, strongest combination possible. Combined with aluminum axles, the CXR 60 hubs stay light and reliable. For the meat of the hubs Mavic uses their QRM+ bearing system. Super smooth rolling, the cartridge bearings are double sealed and sport a micro-adjustability system without having to remove the wheels from the bike. For the rear hub, Mavic employs what they call their FTS-L system, which is a lightweight method of securing the pawl to the hub body by using two stainless steel inserts. You may not be able to put your finger on it when you are riding, but the level of rolling efficiency this set-up provides will make these wheels glide so smoothly and effortlessly that you’ll feel like you hardly have to pedal.

Mavic wheels come with a two-year warranty against defects. Mavic also has their MP3 Program. Short for Mavic Purchase Protection Plan, this is an extended coverage option. It is not required, but it is a cheap and cheerful way to buy some peace of mind—think crash insurance. You’ll need to buy MP3 through Mavic’s website within ten days of purchasing your wheels, so be certain to get onto the Mavic site soon after you place your wheel order to get the details.  More information will be packaged with your wheels.

Even if you buy them only for race day, you’ll quickly find that the Mavic Cosmic CXR 60 T will become your favorite everyday wheels and you won’t want to change them out for your training pair. But that’s okay because they are built with the same durability you can expect from the entire Mavic line-up. They are shipped with BR601 skewers, wheel bags, CXR-specific carbon brake pads, valve extenders, and a multifunction adjustment wrench.
