Technology and look of the Ultimate, into the most efficient clincher Wheel-Tyre System. The Cosmic Carbone SLR is the first aerodynamic clincher Wheel-Tyre System. Aerodynamics, light weight and rolling efficiency are its proven benefits. The exclusive Exalith technology enhances the braking efficiency and the overall look of this Wheel-Tyre System. Consistent SSC graphics.
Exalith 2 - High braking performance The Mavic exclusive Exalith 2 technology for aluminum rims has been refined to provide a very high level of durability and braking performance in all weather conditions.
Braking distance shortened by 18% in wet conditions, while keeping pads wear to normal level.
Exalith treatment penetrates the alloy to delay rim wear and maintain distinctive anthracite grey Colour for thousands of kilometers.
New special black Mavic Exalith 2 brake pads to ensure quiet and high braking performance and longevity (delivered with the wheels).
GripLink - Grip and Control A front tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to hold the ground and control the bike. Therefore, GripLink tyres are optimized for front use, by offering a superior grip.
The safest grip with great steering control: Dual compound “S ” with added Silica.
Hold the road in any situation: light and supple high density casing.
Reduced risk of flats: strong Nylon anti-puncture breaker.
FTS-L - Force Transfer System Light Reinforcement of key transmission components: the contact area between the pawl and the hub body is reinforced by 2 stainless steel inserts, which allows the use of a 100% aluminum hub body.
Greater efficiency due to better transmission of efforts on the entire wheel.
Lightweight and strong hub design.
QRM - Qualité de Roulements Mavic Our most demanding level. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealled with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system.
Tight tolerances for high rolling efficiency.
Quick adjustment according to performance goals: precision "free" adjustment for maximum fluidity, or perfect high precision setting for all-weather rides.
ISM - Low inertia Inter Spoke Milling. 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).
Lighter: easier and faster climbing
Less inertia: instant and effortless acceleration
