Mavic cycling products reap awards

In today’s fast-paced business and technology environment, continuous investment in research, product design and development is crucial to stay ahead of the game. What matters is an understanding of user needs and emerging technologies as well as the ability to validate their relevance. The results manifest themselves in commercial success and industry recognition. 

"Investing in innovation has run through the yellow blood of all Mavic employees since our birth in 1889. The original creators of the company were driven by improving the ride experience for all riders and this is still true today", highlights William Fraser, Global Marketing Director at Mavic.

"Throughout the last 125 years Mavic has consistently developed game changing consumer ideas, including the first alloy rims, electronic shifting and more recently the integrated wheel tyre system. Ceaseless searching, developing, testing and winning enables Mavic to offer the most intense consumer experience possible. We look forward to introducing new concepts and ideas in 2015."
