FTS-L: Force Transfer System Light - The reinforcement of the key transmission components.
Better torque transmission
ISM: Lighter rim and equal rigidity is the magic equation to reduce inertia and to free extra power for climbing. A Mavic patented exclusive concept (US 6 402 256).
Maxtal: Exclusive to Mavic an aluminium alloy that is 30% more resistant than a 6106 alloy, for lighter and stronger rims.
QRM: Mavic only uses high quality sealed cartridge bearings. On QRM wheels, they provide high durability thanks to double sealing (2RS or LLU) as well as high efficiency thanks to C3 internal clearance (low play, tight tolerances).
SUP: Soudé Usiné Process: A welded and milled rim joint is extremely strong, eliminates shuddering when braking, and offers superior wheel balance.
UB: Usiné Brut Control: The braking surfaces are milled to improve braking friction and eliminate shuddering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous I'm lovin' it!
Just got the rear wheel and have done about 60 miles on it. Really enjoying - especially once the speed goes over 20mph. Admittedly it's my first pair with deep rims or with any carbon so I can't really compare it to other performance wheels, but compared to the Aksiums I've used for years I'm really noticing a difference, even with just the rear. Looking forward to completing the set.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Poor build
Don't get me wrong I am a lifelong Mavic fan and have owned more than 20 sets of their wheels but within 300 miles these went seriously out of true and the rear wheel lost its plastic sleeve which is inserted into the rim to guide the tube valve. Whilst good looking and fast in the right conditions they also feel very unstable in cross winds compared to others I have tried. For the money these are a dissapointment.
