So light and fast you might be wondering where your old legs went, Mavic's Cosmic Carbone SLRs are ready to sweep you to the podium. They combine the speed and aerodynamics of deep-dish carbon fairings with the convenience and unparalleled braking power of aluminum clincher rims for wheels that are as fast as they are functional. Plus, the SLRs also feature Mavic's wind-cheating carbon aero spokes and precision high-flange hubs to give you that extra boost when it's time to drop the hammer. The included tire is just as nice. Mavic's Yksion is a 127 TPI tire for sublime ride quality with serious durability. It uses their GripLink technology, which features a fast-rolling, long-wearing center tread with softer rubber infused with silica on the sides for excellent cornering grip.
|Mavic’s Exalith 2 rim treatment is a 10 micron thick layer that actually penetrates the rim for exceptional fatigue strength and resistance to wear from braking. It strengthens the rim and spoke holes, and allows for lighter rim weights. Using the included black Mavic Exalith 2 brake pads, braking power and modulation is improved, especially in the rain.||Mavic's Maxtal rim uses 6000 aluminum, which is 30% stronger than 6106 aluminum. This allows Mavic to build lighter rims for quick acceleration.|
|Mavic's SUP rims boast welded and milled joints for superior strength and wheel balancing.||Mavic's ISM (Inter Spoke Milling) rims have extraneous material machined away between the spokes, resulting in an extremely strong and lightweight rim. The final product climbs faster and accelerates more quickly because of it.|
Mavic's R2R (Rim to Rim) carbon spokes run from one side of the wheel, through the hub, to the other side of the wheel with continuous fibers; utilizing the best property of carbon; its unrivaled tensile strength. This allows wheels to be built stronger and lighter than with conventional steel spokes.
Mavic's GripLink front tire is a dual-compound tire designed to offer superior cornering traction in all conditions. The rubber on the shoulders of the tire has added Silica for great steering precision.
