Mavic was started in 1890, the first products being bicycle mud guards. In 1920, the firm was purchased by Henri Gourmand, who began making rims out of aluminum, still Mavic's iconic product. In 1978 Mavic was making 4,000 rims a day, estimated to be 65 percent of the world market.

In 1977 Mavic began making hubs and from there branched into other components, including brakes, bottom brackets, cranksets and pedals. Many of the parts demonstrated striking originality and brilliant design.
