Made by Mavic for use on their M-type freehubs (Shimano compatible)but with 10 speed spacing for Campy.

Anyone know why they can't be used with any manufacturer's 9spd Shimano compatible freehub?

Any experience with these cassettes?

I've looked at the Bill Shook designs and Wheels Manufacturing sets, neither available in ratios I like (13-25/26).

Thanks in advance.

The Mavic freewheel body is a little bit longer then the shimano body, that's why the mavic M10 doesn't fit on a shimano HG body. And I haven't got any experience with the Mavic sprockets but I read they don't work as nice as Shimano or Campy.

As long as you use Mavic wheels and remove the washer (as pointed out below).

We have 3 Campy 10 road bikes and 1 Campy 10 'cross bike in our stable, with 4 sets of Mavic Cosmos and a pair of Zipps. We have a smorgasboard of Wheels and Mavic M-10 cassettes, and as long as we don't use the Mavic cassettes on the Zipps, we're fine. I don't notice any difference in the shifting between the Wheels and Mavic cassettes, and I'm a racer and former shop mech, so I'm fairly particular.

Someday when I'm feeling ambitious I'll swap out all the cassette bodies, sell all the cassettes on the RBR classifieds :) and go strictly Campy, which is lighter.
cassette body too short...C-40

The mavic 10 speed cogs will only fit on the CC9 hub which has a longer cassette body. The standard shimano cassette body is too short.

I just bought a set of Ksyrium. The wheel come with a washer that is used with Shimano cassette (compensate for the shorter Shimano cassette). To use the Mavic 10spd cassette, the washer must be removed.
