Tour de France tech: New wheels from Mavic

Mavic's new aero wheels feature a smooth transition from rim to tire.

The new CX-01 version of Mavic's CC80 wheel takes an interesting step in the "wheel system" evolution. The rim and tire are designed to be used exclusively with one another and a foam insert along the tire's sidewall makes for a very slick cross section. Photo: Nick Legan
