Mavic Cosmic Elite Road Wheelset - Clincher
Price: $595.99buy now
If you're into the aerodynamic benefits of deep rims but aren't keen on carbon braking surfaces, tubular tire drama, severe cross-wind buffeting, or the high price of plastic wheels, then Mavic's Cosmic Elite Clincher Road Wheelset is your ticket to drag reduction. The rims are a stable 30mm deep, which nets aero gains without throwing you around when the wind picks up. Though they do weight more than similarly sized carbon models, the rims are also alloy, so the brakes don't pulse or fade like many of the more expensive carbon models, and they don't labor under the threat of failing on long, fast descents.
