Mavic CXR60 Clincher
$2,750, Mavic.com
The draw: Synergy between wheel and tire

Designing the CXR60 clincher as a wheel-and-tire system creates two unique attributes. First, the combined alloy/carbon rim with Mavic’s own Exalith braking track offers great stopping power and all-weather predictability. Second, Mavic’s creative CX01 Blade system fills the space between the rim and the tire, thus creating an uninterrupted tire-and-rim profile that has proven to be very fast in aero testing. Adding Mavic’s typical quality and attention to detail make the CXR60 Clincher a great training or race wheel for a wide variety of riders.
