Any product in the Mavic line that carries the Ultimate name represents the French company’s best in materials, design, and function. It’s the premium, pro-level equipment that Mavic’s nearly 130-year history in cycling allows them to create. And now, claims Mavic, Ultimate just got better. Here’s a rundown of the new goods.
Cosmic Ultimate UST
An all-new Cosmic Ultimate UST wheel is Mavic’s best in tubeless wheel design. First offered in 2006, the Cosmic Ultimate wheel became known for its carbon monobloc design. Now, the completely redesigned, 1310-gram Cosmic Ultimate UST creates an incredibly light, stiff, and aerodynamic wheel with the ride quality allowing it to be the go-to choice on race day or as an everyday option thanks to the ease and safety of UST. Included with the wheels are Yksion Pro UST tires. Price: $4250
Cosmic Ultimate SL Shoes
The Cosmic Ultimate Shoe features a single Boa closure system to provide 1mm of incremental adjustment along with low profile collar and integrated heel cup with anatomic foam for not only a lightweight shoe but also a comfortable one. A new full carbon energy SLR outsole helps reduce weight even more from the previous model, taking them below the 200-gram mark per shoe. Price: $380
Comete Ultimate MIPS Helmet
An all-new helmet for Mavic, the Comete Ultimate MIPS uses EPS-4D technology that provides a 30% improvement in shock absorption than standard EPS foam, in addition to MIPS integration. Aerodynamically, it’s 3 watts faster at 40 kilometers per hour than the Cosmic Pro helmet, while large frontal vents and channels ensure that ventilation isn’t compromised. Price: $270
Cosmic Ultimate GTX Jacket
Using Gore-Tex Active with ShakeDry not only makes the Cosmic Ultimate GTX Jacket waterproof and breathable, it also allows it to weigh just 95 grams. It packs down and fits into its own stuff sack for easy storage. Price: $350
Cosmic Insulated SL Vest
Superlight, water repellent, and well insulated, the Cosmic Insulated SL Vest can keep you warm over the summit of a climb and still be easily stuffed in a pocket when the temperatures rise. It can also pair well with the Cosmic Ultimate GTX Jacket for the maximum cold weather performance. Price: $170
Cosmic Ultimate SL Jersey and Bib
French-made and designed for performance with a “pro fit” and UV protection for those long days in the saddle. Featuring open mesh on the sleeves for additional ventilation, the jersey also utilizes silicone grippers to comfortably keep the breathable fabric in place. The bib is the lightest one Mavic has ever made and uses highly-supportive fabrics to give the most muscle support possible. An Ergo 3D Pro Chamois features an Ortholite multi-layer construction for comfort and moisture wicking. Price: $130 (jersey), $200 (bib)
