High-performance disc wheel with a pricetag to match

It’s not cheap, but Mavic’s super-stiff, enhanced-braking disc is a rock-solid boost for aggressive riders. The rims of the Comete are aluminium to allow use of the latest anchorage and life-boosting Exalith rim treatment that’s potentially a real control bonus in changeable conditions.

The full-carbon wheel construction keeps overall weight reasonable though (1,160g), and the power delivery is outstandingly direct, with no trace of flex in corners either. The asymmetric design is claimed to actually create negative drag at certain wind angles, and the wheels certainly feel fast.

Mavic’s steel freehubs are well proven, the French company’s own tub tyre, wheelbags and brake blocks are included, and there’s a damage-insurance programme for an extra £147.
