A demonstration of maximal effort for marginal gain. Mavic presents the tire from CAD image to final product. Featured in the video are Mavic’s Yksion Griplink and Powerlink tires on R-SYS SLR wheelsets. They claim research and development of the Yksion line took a whopping 3 years, 60 prototypes and 400 hours of lab and field testing. Also, throughout the video the camera pans to their never-ending herd of Cervelo C5 Aero-candies. We had one in the office for a while – a review of it here.
