Mavic is offering a set of Aksium S wheels, worth £220, for just £1 when you buy a set of its top-end race wheels.
Applying to its Cosmic CXR 80, CXR 60, Carbone 40 and R-SYS SLR wheels from October 1st to November 30th, the offer gets you a pair of winter training wheels for just £1. The idea, reckons Mavic, is to buy your summer race wheels now and get a set of nearly free wheels to ride on over the winter.
The deal means you can get a set of the brand new £1,800 Cosmic Carbone 40 wheels, and for just one more of your English pounds, a set of Aksium S wheels for when the weather is too nasty for your carbon wheels. The Cosmic Carbone 40 wheels are the company’s first carbon clincher with a lightweight alloy extrusion with a carbon shell bonded around it. David is currently reviewing them, and has been very impressed so far, here’s his just in article on them with all the details.
