We all hate that feeling of having over cooked a corner just a little too much, that panicked feeling as the front tire starts to lose traction. Mavic knows that feeling too, so they created the Mavic Yksion Griplink road tire specifically for the front of your bike. It uses a special dual tread compound to keep your tire in tight contact with the ground during high speed cornering maneuvers. This is a perfect race tire for all you crit warriors, crazy descenders and manic sprinters out there.
Dual tread compound uses a 60a durometer rubber on the high mileage center and a grippier 60a S+ high silica rubber on the shoulders for better cornering and increased road contact
Rubber thins toward the bead to optimize weight and rolling energy
