About Mavic

1889: Two brothers, Léon and Laurent Vielle, created a 'nickel-plating' business in 1889. A little later Charles Idoux and Lucien Chanel ventured into the 'manufacture and the sale of spare parts for bicycles'.

While the Vielle brothers founded Etablissements Métallurgiques du Rhône (EMR) with the brand name AVA, the latter created MAVIC, Manufacture d’Articles Vélocipédiques Idoux et Chanel (Idoux & Chanel’s Manufactory of Articlesfor Velocipedes). The common factor between these two businesses was their President, Henry Gormand.

1973: Mavic starts an assistance service for racing cyclists. At races, Mavic makes available to all competitors a ‘neutral and free’ assistance. Mavic’s two key ideas are: a well-equipped car in front of the main body of riders to give immediate breakdown assistance to the leaders, and a complete radio liaison service between the vehicles (organizers, doctors, sports managers, journalists, etc.). The first Mavic assistance race was Paris-Nice. It was when he lent his car at the last minute to a Sports Manager whose vehicle had broken down during the Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré in 1972 that Bruno Gorm and had the idea of making available a completely innovative ’neutral’ assistance, better suited to both racers and organizers.

2010: For the first time, wheel sets are now designed with the integration of their specific tire.

By developing wheel and tire technologies together Mavic can improve the wheel's responsiveness and reach a new era in wheel system design.
