++Update – the new 2017 Mavic Open Pro with Exalith coating will be available from early 2018. Keep checking for details as we will be building with this rim when it arrives too.++
The Mavic Open Pro is back with a wide profile road rim. The SUP rim has a stronger arc-welded joint which is then milled to form an invisible join, eliminating juddering when braking. Maxtal alloy is 30% stronger than 6061 without any extra weight. The Mavic Open Pro has an anodised finish to reduce wear and corrosion. UB Control gives the rims a higher coefficient braking surface and a smooth joint due to the digital milling process after anodisation. It is drilled for Presta valve tubes with a weight of 410 g. Available in 24, 28 and 32 hole black finish.
Strada says – Mavic Open Pros
If you are a 100kg + rider and have been told by your local bike shop that the Mavic Open Pro is the rim for you we disagree and suggest you opt for our Big Fella wheelset. For regular training wheels I suggest our 23mm wide training wheels.
