Mavic Aksium Allroad Disc Wheelset - Clincher $299.90
Limitless adventures ahead.
Skinny rims are great for the disciplined roadie, but when your riding has a big sense of adventure it's best to not limit yourself to pavement. The Mavic Aksium Allroad Clincher Disc Wheelset is here for those of us who prefer keeping the options open to explore beyond the beaten path and dive down the side roads, regardless of what they are made of. With wide rims that are ready to take on lofty tires up to 62-millimeters, the Aksium Allroad Wheelset is eager for multi-surface rides, keeping you floating on the roughest terrain with low tire pressure that takes away the sting on chattery, barely-graded gravel.
Delving into the particulars of the wheel, the Aksium Allroad is crafted from Mavic's proprietary S6000 aluminum, which boasts more strength than other go-to alloys like 6065, helping you stay solid on the ride regardless of where it may take you. The rugged alloy hoops are laced up with straight-pull spokes that offer more strength for better tensioning than J-bend options to keep your wheel feeling stiff and supportive when the road ahead is anything but. Optimizing weight and stiffness, Mavic's engineers opt for 24 both front and rear, dialing in the brake torque distribution with a disc-friendly lacing pattern.
The rims all center around Mavic's new Instant Drive 360 QRM Auto hub, which represent a drastic departure from tradition, as the engagement mechanism replaces the usual pawl system with the dual-ratcheting rings formally found on designer hubs you see on custom hand-builts. The design involves two rings that press together laterally. One face of the ring's teeth are sloped, so they ramp off of each other while freewheeling. The other face isn't, so the rings engage with pedal input. The design cuts the engagement angle down to just nine-degrees, a number we might expect to see on a mountain bike hub, and are pleasantly surprised to find on this allroad ride.
