New, never-laced PAIR of 700c clincher rims by MAVIC.  Special edition of M 231. 36 spoke-holes in each.

This is the ROAD/Cyclocross size, 700c, ertro 622mm. Sidewalls are angled inwards by about 3°, narrower at the tire-bead edges, where the rim outside width is 22mm, and wider on the spoke-supporting wall, where it is 23mm wide. This is to improve the braking reliability of cantilever (or 'V') type calipers, which
often have the characteristic, sometimes to a dangerous degree, of arcing downwards toward the spokes as they pivot toward the rim. This condition is worsened by 2 factors: whenever the cantilever posts are too far apart from each other, relative to the width of the rim, and/or, whenever the brake shoe is near the bottom of the adjustment slot (closer to the brake pivot) making a smaller radius on the cantilever brake shoe's arc as it moves inward.  So, this rim, both by being wider than the more usual 20mm, and by having the sidewalls angled to be more perpendicular to the brake shoe movement, can provide much better stopping, and dramatically reduce the tendency for slightly worn brake shoes to 'dive' under the rim edge and toward the spokes.

Double-wall for high strength with relatively low weight(488g) with a durable, triple-channel, hollow design. Reinforcing eyelets and strong, well-made, pinned and bonded seams. Anti-corrosive, silver anodized. 

Drilled for Presta valves.  Hooked beads securely retain tires, including high-pressure folding type.  Fit 700c (ertro 622mm) tires only.

Possibly some very light shopwear.  Some dust and dirt present.  One rim still has its original factory wrapper mostly intact.  Both rim stickers are coming un-stuck just a little, on their edges.

Made in France, c. 1992.
