Mavic is poised to release a new Carbone for 2007. PRO teams rode these wheels discreetly as prototypes in the 2006 TDF and they have finally made it to prime time. The Saunier Duval team has been riding them in Mallorca and ROAD's very own Neil Brown had an opportunity to ride them. The wheels have a very "Lightweight" look to them, complete with tall hub flanges and kevlar spokes. If the wheels come with the optional Mavic Potection Program, Lightweight may have some issues at hand.
