Mavic's Yksion Pro Powerlink Tubular Tire was designed to be used with your Cosmic Carbone hoops, and if you've used them before, you know that the two play very well together. Working as part of an integrated wheel tire system, the Yksion Pro Powerlink is the rear specific tire of the GripLinkPowerLink team. The Yksion Pro PowerLink features a single compound rubber construction and a supple 210 TPI. It rolls on a firm, efficient center and softer shoulders to complement the GripLink front tire's cornering capabilities. Mavic focused on achieving low rolling resistance with this rear tire, arranging the tread pattern and nylon casing reinforcement with that goal in mind. A nylon breaker serves to guard against sharp road debris, helping make flats a rare occurrence when paired with the tire's tubular construction.
