Mavic Aksium Wheelset Review

mavic aksiumThe Mavic Aksium wheelset is stronger and more durable than the similarly priced Shimano 600 and capitalizes on the trickle-down effect of Mavic’s far more expensive offering to create a truly outstanding wheel.

The Aksium may be considered most appropriate for training on a race bike, or as an excellent all-around wheel for a sport/touring model.  If you’re thinking of this wheelset as a full-race unit, then at 2000 grams it falls a bit on the heavy side of the spectrum.  However, as anyone who has owned a set will attest, there is a reason for these spinner’s added heft.

Though most companies try to hide their lead hoop’s bad engineering and cheap components behind a requirement for “more strength,” don’t believe the propaganda.  Most other 2000 gram wheels don’t come near the Aksium’s level of strength and durability, and are little more than an upgrade from department-store stock units. With their reputation on the line, rest assured that when Aksium makes a wheel heavy, it’s because it will withstand the warm side of a nuclear blast.

At their 21mm height, the Mavic Aksiums aren’t the tallest in the industry, owing most of their extra weight to stiffer and more reliable stainless steel spokes and quality QRM bearing.  The T-6061 alloy of the rim itself is a bit thicker than the average race wheels, which shows when the runouts get aggressive.  Flying down the road at 50mph over the cracked asphalt designed for a 4000 car is rough on wheels, especially if the rider isn’t quite as dainty as the average.

However, even after tens of thousands of miles of repeated abuse by the stockiest racers, the Aksium’s wheels remain straight and true.

So are the Aksiums nothing more than armor-grade training wheels? Hardly. Even in spite of their slight heft, the fact is that any Mavic Aksium wheel is going to accelerate smoother and more quickly than practically any other for the same price.
