Mavic is a pretty traditional company. Instead of hopping on the carbon clincher bandwagon and wide rim trend train, the French company has taken its time developing technology that focuses on safety and the reality of ride experience rather than appeals to the latest fads.

The Cosmic High is made with odor resistant Meryl Skinlife material, and the reinforced toe and padded metatarsal panel add durable comfort. The socks are breathable which we expect from cycling socks and are also assembled with an anatomic, leftright specific fit a less common feature.
