The ‘reference’ rim up until the past decade, the Mavic Open Pro rim finally gets an update. 19mm inner width, UST tubeless compatible, 430g weight. Open Pro is the latest version of Mavic "Open" (ie. clincher) rims, and as such is the most advanced evolution. Optimized up to the limit of material potential, Open Pro is probably the best road rim available. It is made Maxtal, an aluminum alloy that is 30% more resistant than a 6106 alloy, for lighter and stronger rims.
One of the most celebrated rims in the history of road cycling, Mavic’s Open Pro remains the example to which high-end aluminum road rims are compared. Its design is tried and true, and its Maxtal material delivers a perfectly balanced strong, rigid, and lightweight wheel build. It also features Mavic’s Soudé Usiné Process (SUP), a process by which the rim is arc welded and machined smooth, resulting in a stronger rim joint and better rim balance, as well as smooth, shudder-free braking. Ride a pair of Open Pros and you’ll understand why so many experienced riders swear by them. - Clincher
