Awesome wheels!

I wanted a set of wheels that I can train on and put in some work on the streets so I looked no further than mavic. Smooth, stiff, and durable wheel. Great for velo or street use!

Excellent Wheelset With the Right Tires

I purchased my Ellipse wheelset from State Bicycle online, and I was quite happy at the time with the quality of the wheels and the price. However, Western Bike Works has much better sales, and at 20% off the price is unbeatable.

As for the wheelset, they completed my first fixie that I ride around town. I've ridden these wheels for about 100 miles now, and they feel very solid and smooth. I don't notice the weight of the wheels much, and in fact they seems very fast to me allowing me to maintain speeds of 24 - 26 mph on the road without too much trouble. Adjusting the bearings is simple with the included tool.

The only problem I had was with installing and removing my Continental Gatorskins. I've used these tires for years, but perhaps these tires were not made for these wheels because they were next to impossible to install and remove. Man, you require strong thumbs and sturdy tire levers to get these tires on and off. It seems the wheels are not as deep as my road bike's wheels, so the tires went on tight and only got tighter. I thought everything was fine until a flat tire revealed the true difficulty of removing the tire. I've since started using Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick folding tires, and these are much easier to install.

Nonetheless, I liked the wheelset so much that I bought a second Ellipse wheelset directly from Western Bike Works for the great price. These will help me build my second fixie. These are awesome wheels, when you use tires that install and remove easily. Keep in mind the lockring provided has French threads, so only this Mavic lockring fits the rear wheel. It's great that this lockring is now sold as a separate item for when you want to install a gear on each side of the rear wheel. I bought a couple of these Mavic lockrings for good measure.

These are the 2011 Mavic Ellipse Wheelset.

Great, solid wheels. Although not the lightest wheels out there, for the price they are pretty great.

Come true straight out of the box, includes stickers and lockring. Decals are removable leaving a glossy black rim. Spokes are bladed for that extra aero-ness.

You will need to use the lockring provided through Mavic as they were specifically made for the ellipse wheelset, I hear without the mavic lockring anything else will start slipping with usage.

I would recommend these.

Bought them just in time for the summer, pretty tough wheels. It rides really smooth and they're very light. Reduced the weight of my bike, I felt the difference. Definitely worth every penny.

bought a set of these in 2012 to replace the oem wheels which were also an ellipse wheelset but mavic modified the design in the meanwhile, greatly improving the braking surface. on a fixed gear bike, unless you're insane, you use the brakes far more than on a freewheel equipped machine. the oem wheels couldn't take that abuse. the replacement wheels could and have. i've more than 20,000 km on these wheels and they're nowhere near as scary looking with that usage as the original set. they've basically been trouble-free.

only complaints are the hubs tend to collect rust, which is unsightly, and the decals have started peeling off, which is also unsightly.

These wheels are great! i had some deep v's before and i am very impressed at the strength, lightness and they are so aero! Love the double track rear hub, as long as you have a wrench, its easy enough to switch back and forth from your daily commute, or if you want to kill it at the track. I didnt think the aero spokes would make a big difference but you can really feel them cutting through the air. Maintenance is super easy with the provided wrench for the hubs. Plus, Mavic has some good logo designers working over there!

I've had these wheels for a couple months now and have ridden them everyday since. And they are pretty fantastic. They are light but don't sacrifice durability to achieve it. I read reviews of people saying that they had to continually adjust the rear axle because it kept tightening up on them when they skid, but I have yet to have that happen. The bearings are super smooth and will roll for days once you break em in. They best thing about them, they look super cool, and fast. I love the low spoke count and aero design. So if you want a fast, good looking wheel but don't want to pay $600 to get it, buy these wheels. You won't regret it.
