Hi :D

A quick question....

Is it possible to use the CX01 Blades on a Mavic Cosmic Carbon SL clincher wheel set with other tyres than Mavic's (Schwalbe/Conti etc...)???

It's only to have the "right Mavic look" on my wheels I'm asking.... Will the Blades fit on a normal aluminium rim as well...???

Thanks in advance for answers :)

No. The CXR80's have an extra groove that the blades snap into, and are therefore the only wheels the blades can be used with. They don't just fit between the tyre and the rim.
