It's a full carbon model that Mavic has been working on for about 2 years now. Last I heard, no production date available yet. They debuted during last years TdF.
Quit whining and go ride your bike!!

Wow, cool. Hopefully that'll drive the price of the regular old carbones downwards. Either that or these new wheels will be like 3000 dollars.

Yep it's confirmed. I'm going to start saving up my pennies for when people start ebaying off their old carbones by the dozens.

I beleive that Mavic don't intend to release these wheels to the public, as they beleive that their will be too much troubles caused with brake pads, and safety - I have heard through internal communication that America is to blame for this.

His position blows my mind everytime I see it.

That's about the most aggressive bike positioning ever. It's really, really humbing that Cipo is the same height/weight as me... obviously with about 10,000 times the skills and power :(

And what about these ones? These were on the Bikemotion show in Holland. The ones on the back are the complete carbon ones, but those on the front...
