Mavic Open SUP CD Rims

Hello

What year range are these Mavic Open SUP CD rims?

I'm thinking of putting them on my 198? Bianchi, hoping they're of a similar period. I only know of Mavic Open Pros (showing my lack of age!)

TIA

Very early 90's, perhaps very late 80's. I built a set of wheels up with those rims in 1989 for my De Rosa.

I have used these on two bicycles.

My De Rosa SLX which is from the late 80s, early 90s.

I also have a wheelset remaining from my Zullo Speciale that was sold to a forum member last year.

I have had excellent luck with these, and wouldn't hesitate using them again.

As with any older wheelset though, check for cracking/heavier rust around the nipples/eyelets.

True them and you should be good to go for a nice, long while.

1988, give a couple of years each way. Black anodized rims were very popular back then.

You may already know this, but SUP is Mavic's proprietary name for their rim welding process (where the rim joint is welded). They still use this process, and the SUP designation, on their higher end rims and wheelsets.

Wrong...

The nearest rim to that from late 80's, very early 90's was the iconic Open 4 CD anodised rim, which was around at the same time as the Mach2 CD and GP4 sprint rims amongst others, and just after the MA40 from the very late 80's.

The Open SUP CD, came in just after the silver Open 4 Ceramic (1991/2), which was later replaced by the Open SUP CD and Open Pro Ceramic at roughly the same time - circa 1994/95.

So now Open 4 CD is iconic?

Thanks for that explanation. It's good to know that the SUP designation means higher end.

Not to hijack the OP's thread, but I'm using these Mavic SUP Reflex rims laced to Campy hubs on my early 90's Barecci build. Are they period correct? -

Without any doubt - the best all purpose, training through to racing clincher rim that Mavic ever made. They're still around today in large numbers despite the usage which is a real testament to the build quality.

Better than these "last a couple of seasons before they fail" crap from the present day.

They're a bit late for "early nineties" - as is the rear Campy mech!

Early 90's Campy was C Record / Croce D'Daune / Chorus / Athena etc....

Must be nice rims, but I did not like the way Mavic started putting so much more decals on them. Campy was doing the same with even bigger company and rim model logos on their new rims at that time. It was a tend that led to what we see now on modern rims, where they became even bigger advertising billboards then most bike frames for the rim companies.
My favorite classic rims from Mavic would be the 330GL. A sew up rim that might have been considered a Mavic benchmark for reliable and light sewup rims of the mid 80's and later.

I know what you mean - but they did bring a slightly cool "pro" look to the wheels - especially when you added white " M A V I C " letters to the opposite side of the rim for maximum pose value!

Personal tub favourite was the CX-18 - the lightest rim I've ever ridden on, and what I used to spin my fastest ever 10 on...

These came in 1994 / 95 - after the Open 4 CD, and after the Open 4 Ceramic. They're too late for a period correct 80's Bianchi.

Go for something like the MA40 / Open 4 CD if you want clincher rim (red label if possible for mid 80's), or GP4 / Mach 2 CD or something like that if you want tubs....
