Cosmic Elite UST Wheel

Road tubeless has impressed us beyond belief and we truly feel like the wheel and tire technology has improved to the point that we really don't care to use an inner tube going forward. Ditching the tube lowers the rolling resistance so you can go faster with less effort. It also allows for lower tire pressure to be utilized for a more comfortable ride and better traction. Then there's the reduced risk of punctures which we have really come to enjoy on goathead riddled bike lanes and paths. We think it's time for everyone to experience road tubeless and with wheels like Mavic's Cosmic Elite UST Wheel, there's no reason not to.

We're amazed at the performance that the Cosmic Elite packs in and had to do a double take to make sure the price was right for these wheels, especially when you consider that price includes tires. Besides the smoother ride and improved puncture resistance that comes from running sealant, tubeless affords a lighter weight setup, by about 40 grams per wheel, for snappier climbing and accelerating.

Cosmic wheels have always had a touch of aero and Mavic, through wind tunnel testing, creates a 30mm deep rim profile that boosts aero performance without compromising stability in crosswinds. Bladed straight pull spokes and aero profile hubs further help you cheat the wind. The aluminum rims are a pleasant departure from carbon rims in that the braking is powerful and predictable. Mavic tunes the thickness of the rim wall to optimize stiffness, strength, and weight. A reinforced lower rim wall gives it incredible resistance and durability. The S6000 alloy creates a very light yet strong rim extrusion that is arc welded using Mavic's SUP process. The seam is then milled for a smooth finish that cannot be detected while braking. Mavic then CNC machines the braking surface with a process known as UB Control to further improve friction with the pads to get you slowed down faster. The 17mm inner width pairs perfect with the included 25mm wide tires and anything up to around 32mm if your bike and brakes have room to spare.

Pedaling effort is transferred into forward motion with the FTS-L freehub, a tried and true system that is light, smooth, and easy to service. Finally, the Cosmic Elites come ready to go tubeless with Yksion Pro UST tires, sealant, a syringe, tubeless tape, and valves to help you get the most from the tubeless setup.

Great deal Great deal, great wheels.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

What a bargain! I got these for winter wheels to spare my carbon rims. They are beautiful on my Stealth Aeroad. Same tires I use in the summer. I live in goathead hell, and haven't flatted in a year running tubeless.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Wow what a difference going tubeless!!!!! They are amazing! The wheels have just enough aero, and the tires are exceptional.

Things to know: Shimano/Sram option works with 8 and 9 speed cassettes (from experience - mine and wife's respectively)

Tires come mounted on, just inflate them, and use the syringe to inject some sealant into each wheel through the valve -- you remove the valve core with a small included plastic tool (any online vid will show you how) -- super easy to install.

Don't get confused by the "front" and "rear" markings on BOTH tires. Just orient them based on tread pattern when you stand over the bike as you would be riding it and look down at each wheel you should see the tread go like this: / \ and NOT like this: \ /

Yeah otherwise super fast, super aero, super nice rolling resistance, and most importantly, seem bomb proof on the potholed roads of Boston.

Why, Now That You Ask

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

In all frankness (nudge nudge, wink wink), I don't know a damn thing about these rims, but I can tell you this fact, which I hold to be true, unequivocally:

I'm on a pair of Mavic rims, on my way-back machine from the 90s, I had a technical question, so I wrote the Mavic customer service reps. Those folks at Mavic got back to me, in a few number of hours, and with the necessary information.
As far as I'm concerned Mavic is fly - godsends from the cycling gods and goddesses!

never going back to tubes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

never going back to tubes. no flats in 350 miles of city riding so far. seems a bit heavy up hill but fast on flats and in wind. feels great over ruff road with lower tire pressures that are suggested by mavic. rims seem very strong and stay true. oh and look great too! not for racing but everyday bombproof wheels and tires!
