Has anyone heard of Mavic's new MP3 program?(6 posts)

It's a no questions asked 2 year replacement policy on it's new wheels. I know it is for the mountain wheels, but haven't heard if it's for road wheels yet.

The protection policy cost 8% of the wheels cost and must be bought at the time of wheel purchase, but if you trash your wheel in a crash, they fix or replace, no questions asked.

Here's the URL of the info...

I am interested in knowing people's thoughts on this.

The funny thing is that if you read all the legal stuff there is a lot of exceptions, which I would not claim as "no questions asked" that their website says the program is. To me, "no questions asked" means no exceptions... but the legal says otherwise. Still, it sounds like a cool offer from Mavic.

Your thoughts?

Hey pay less than 50 bucks for a two year insurance on my Ksyrium Elites? i'm all for it!! given how i ride, and the areas in which i ride there is a high chance that i will trash my wheels in a crash at some point. I think this is SWEET.
about the legal... well some major BS, but most of it is just normal warranty claims. even with that i think its still an awesome deal.

Undoubtedly this is to appease Mavic dealers, who are sick of being undercut at every turn. I'm sure this plan is only available through authorized dealers, in your home country - not for gray market wheels. Just another creative way to get people to buy things from the legitmate dealer network.

Some will pay and never use the service. The profit margin on Boutique wheels is already sky high. So what if you have to eat a few sets of wheels? MAVIC still comes out ahead. Wonder if they offer dealer incentives for selling the "extended warranty"?
