Cosmic Carbone SLS Wheelset

Cosmic Carbone SLS features time-proven Mavic carbon capabilities, blending aerodynamics and high stiffness, with one of the lightest aero clincher rims. Feather light Yksion Pro tyres and new hubs reinforce its responsiveness. Affordable for any riders, road racers and triathletes!

  • Weight (pair of wheels): 1695 grams
  • Weight Front: 765 grams
  • Weight Rear: 930 grams

Technologies:

  • 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.
  • PowerLink: Low rolling resistance A rear tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to transfer power and generate speed. Therefore, PowerLink tyres are optimized for rear use, by minimizing the rolling resistance.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • SUP: Stronger and smoother joint Soudé Usiné Process. After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish.
  • Maxtal: Light and strong Exclusive to Mavic, this specific aluminum alloy offers a higher weight to strength ratio than conventional 6106 alloy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent wheel! Fantastic wheels look great on my planet x RT57, sound great ,climb great and take your average up by 5mph on the flat. Easy to fit and adjust with the mavic supplied key. Tyres seem ok too. 15 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great entry level carbon wheel set Wow! this was my first reaction to these wheels when I went out on my first ride. They look good but more importantly they perform well. I did one of my usual rides and despite having a strong headwind for the first half, road very wet (took it very cautiously on corners) and having not been cycling for a couple of months (concentrated on running) I found myself setting one of my best times. On one downhill section I went 5 mph faster than I have ever done before and felt in total control, much more so than on my previous CXP 22 wheels. The wheels were responsive and also absorbed bumps in the road much better than my old wheels. I have always been sceptical about getting new wheels even though people say it makes the biggest difference, they're right, I couldn't believe how much more responsive and faster they are. When I pushed it the bike went so much quicker. I would thoroughly recommend these wheels to anyone considering wanting to get carbon wheels. As for Chain Reaction Cycles I ordered the wheels on Tuesday and they arrived on Thursday using the free standard delivery - excellent service. They were already assembled, all I had to do was fit them on the bike, it was that simple. 02 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Marvellous Mavics It’s no secret that one of the best up-grades you can do to your bike is replacing the standard wheelset. This purchase was not just for the anticipated performance increase but also the aesthetic appeal of these carbon beauties. I opted to stay with clincher style rims after advice from club members. The Mavic brand is synonymous with quality and performance and this wheelset does not disappoint! On arrival I was blown away by just how gorgeous these wheels are. To give you an idea just how light they are I weighed them and my standard Shimano RS510 rims. These two wheels, tyres and cassette are the same weight as the standard ‘rear’ Shimano only!!! Reduced spinning centrifugal mass translates on the bike to increased acceleration, quicker steering and reduced braking effort. All these are instantly noticeable and my first ride with these wheels was a 35 mile run on familiar roads and I cannot believe the difference. I was always sceptical about claims that a wheelset can make a difference but believe me they do! Ok, £750 is a lot of money, most than some people can afford for a whole bike, but if you can run to it then I would recommend these wheels in a heartbeat! Remember they come with tyres fitted and they are nearly £40 each! Now performance does not come without side effects, the increased rigidity and stiffness of these rims does translate the roughness of anything other than billiard table smooth roads through the frame, forks and bars. It’s not un-bearable but it is there and worth mentioning I think. Fast down hill bursts were fine; I hit 40mph and these babies stayed rock solid, ran true and were never nervous as some reviews I’d read on lighter carbon wheels had pointed out. Not sure wet, cold November roads are best suited to these Mavic tyres but I wouldn’t go leaning over too far in the corners on thin semi-slicks by any other manufacturer to be fair? Finally the noise these wheels make is just mesmerising! When you are motoring along or out of the saddle putting the power down they talk to you with an intoxicating mellifluous thrum!! These wheels may not make us Chris Froome, but boy they can make us look as good and feel as good as our Heroes! Of course, usual un-believable service from the Chain Reaction team! 17 November 2013

Answer: 
Mavic use their own freehub size, which is wider than a normal 8-10 speed one. This means all 8-10 speed cassettes need the Mavic spacer which is provided with the wheels, while the 11 speed Shimano cassettes don't need it.
