Comments about Mavic Inc. Mavic Aksium S Road Wheelset:
I gave it 5 stars but that is in reference to the price and they deserve it. They are a little heavy (about 1,900 without the tires) bit not out of line in the price range at all. And it does come with tires which worked much better than expected. I did repalace the tires after about 1,000 miles. There were cuts or separations in the casing. Don't know if I ran over some sharp rocks or if it was the tires though. The wheels have been bullet proof! They stay true even though I have hit some bad potholes and I am a returning cyclist who is currently at 235 pounds and 6'2". The wheels even look great and a few people not familiar with them thought they were much more expensive wheels. If you are looking for a dependable wheel set at a good price, I highly recommend these.
