From the land of misfit Mavic toys...

As far as I know this doesn't really exist.

4 pawl 571 cassette rear hub. It's labeled as a 571, not 571/2. Someone's aftermarket modification? The machining quality is very high, so that seems unlikely. An experiment by Mavic at increasing the number of pawls? Beats me. Anyone seen one before?

More oddball Mavic stuff that doesn't exist coming shortly...

Where did you find this? Maybe it was a prototype or custom for a sponsored team. Amazing.

It came from France. I think you're probably on the right track with it being a prototype.

Thanks for the comment!

I remember seeing this at the Interbike show. IIRC the one they had there had only 2 pawls. Seemed very clever at the time- always wondered what happened to that design.
