Technologies: QRM (Qualité de Roulements Mavic) - Mavic only uses high quality sealed cartridge bearings. On QRM wheels, they feature double sealing (2RS or LLU) together with tight C3 internal clearance. UB Control (Usiné Brut Control) - The braking surfaces are precisely CNC machined. Improves braking friction and eliminates shuddering when braking. FTS-L (Force Transfer System Light) - Reinforcement of key transmission components: the contact area between the pawl and the hub body is reinforced by 2 stainless steel inserts, which allows the use of a 100% aluminum hub body. Advantages: greater efficiency due to better transmission of efforts on the entire wheel and lightweight and strong hub design. H2 (Hammer Hardening) - Local strengthening of the rim in the area where the spokes exert the greatest stress. Improves rim's life expectancy and resistance to micro cracking.
Maintenance/care: Clean with a dry cloth or soap and water. Do not use pressurized water.
