General Information
 Mavic is best known for its lightweight aluminum rims and complete wheels, which they continue to produce today.  They also produced a full range of drive train components in the past.  Mavic made a failed attempt to popularize an electronic shifting system in the early 90's.

 Mavic is a French bicycle parts manufacturer whose name is an acronym for Manufacture d'Articles Vélocipédiques Idoux et Chanel founded by Charles Idoux and Lucien Chanel. The company is most noted as a manufacturer of bicycle wheels. Many competitive cyclists such as those in the Tour de France ride on Mavic wheels. Mavic is based near St. Etienne, France.

Throughout the company's history it has manufactured many different components for bicycles including wheelsets, hubs, brakes, mudguards, cassettes, chainrings, headsets, cycling computers, chains, stems, bars, cranks, bottom brackets, and even children's pedal cars; but is best known for its production of lightweight alloy rims.

Since 1973 the company has provided its famous "Service des Courses" - Free and Neutral Service - to thousands of bicycle races throughout the world.
