Mavic Tires

26 Jul 2017 14:37

According to this article, T. Phinney used Mavic clincher tires on his TDF TT bike

In a previous article on this site it was stated the tires were tubeless.

I could not find such a tire on the Mavic site.

Is the more information available?

Also what is your experience with Mavic tires?

It's an Yksion Pro Powerlink C I think:

No idea if they are tubeless though I'm afraid.

Some Mavic's came with my second hand fixed wheelset. They seemed pretty good but I went back to Conti GPs (standard ones, not the 4000s) which are pretty much my go to tyre for year round riding.

Thanks KB. Your post led me to this site that has a tubeless tire. Seems sealant is required but still lighter than a tube. I will investigate tubeless at a later date, but will pass this on to a triathlete friend,

I'm posting this here because I have a dual problem.. I have been using two wheel sets ,one w the Mavic hospitality tires 23's that came with the bike.. they were ok , light and lasted for decent milage..my other wheels had Continental Gatorskin Hardshell 23's.. both sets of tires are toast.. I have two questions.. is there anything else besides the Gatorskins that is decent against punctures and doesn't feel dead?
Second is there benefit going to a 25? I have read about rolling resistance, but I am most interested in having as few flats as possible..
A pair looks to be@90-100 dollars.. that is about the most I like to spend on non- racing tires.. thanks for any feedback.. I ride mostly on dry roads ..
