General Information

Three technical innovations to ensure perfect sealing of the MAVIC headset, a deflector, a sealing groove and a gasket.

Simple:- A Mavic innovation - the clamping system, this makes it possible to eliminate many of the parts required in the convention systems, as the gasket prevents loosening.

Ultra-Light:- In the Mavic set, the balls bear on the whole groove, so that cups made entirely of light alloy can be used.

Gentle:- The load distribution all round the 50 steel balls gives the Mavic headset incomparable gentleness and comfort.
