Aerodynamic, stiff and incredibly durable. The Ellipse Track Wheelsets benefits form an even lighter rim design for a more responsive feel and lower rotational weight without sacrificing its key assets. This versatile design can be used for training or racing and time can be saved changing cogs thanks to fixed gear threading on both sides of the hubs. Maxtal rim technology provides 30% more wear resistance than previous 6106 alloy design excellent longevity at a super light weight. The 30mm deep profile is aerodynamic but not so deep that it impedes acceleration. Bladed straight pull steel spokes gain strength by eliminating the weak-point J-bend of traditional spokes and further aerodynamics. Brass nipples. 20 spokes per wheel laced radially front and 2 cross rear. The hubs roll on high quality QRM+ bearings and a durable steel axle. Uses a 1.37 x 24 TPI thread fixed cog (not included). Includes axle nuts, cog lockring, rear wheel bearing adjustment tool, spoke holder for bladed spokes, and valve extenders. Clincher tire compatible only. Size 700c (13-622 ISO). 1895 grams/set.

excellent wheels

bought a set of these in 2012 to replace the oem wheels which were also an ellipse wheelset but mavic modified the design in the meanwhile, greatly improving the braking surface. on a fixed gear bike, unless you're insane, you use the brakes far more than on a freewheel equipped machine. the oem wheels couldn't take that abuse. the replacement wheels could and have. i've more than 20,000 km on these wheels and they're nowhere near as scary looking with that usage as the original set. they've basically been trouble-free.

only complaints are the hubs tend to collect rust, which is unsightly, and the decals have started peeling off, which is also unsightly.

affordable, high quality track wheel set, good for the road

These wheels are great! i had some deep v's before and i am very impressed at the strength, lightness and they are so aero! Love the double track rear hub, as long as you have a wrench, its easy enough to switch back and forth from your daily commute, or if you want to kill it at the track. I didnt think the aero spokes would make a big difference but you can really feel them cutting through the air. Maintenance is super easy with the provided wrench for the hubs. Plus, Mavic has some good logo designers working over there!

Great wheel, light wheel, use it everyday.

I've had these wheels for a couple months now and have ridden them everyday since. And they are pretty fantastic. They are light but don't sacrifice durability to achieve it. I read reviews of people saying that they had to continually adjust the rear axle because it kept tightening up on them when they skid, but I have yet to have that happen. The bearings are super smooth and will roll for days once you break em in. They best thing about them, they look super cool, and fast. I love the low spoke count and aero design. So if you want a fast, good looking wheel but don't want to pay $600 to get it, buy these wheels. You won't regret it.
