Mavic R-SYS SLR Tubular WTS Front Wheel Technologies:
SUP: Soudé Usiné Process. After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish. A welded and milled rim joint is extremely strong, eliminates shuddering when braking, and offers superior wheel balance.
Maxtal: Exclusive to Mavic. An aluminium alloy that is 30% more resistant than a 6106 alloy, for lighter and stronger rims.
Fore: Only one of the 2 rim wall is "drilled" : - the rim is 4 times more resistant to fatigue stress - 20% increase in the rim rigidity to transfer all of your energy to the ground
QRM: Qualité de Roulements Mavic . Our most demanding level. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system, allowing you to quickly adjust your wheels according to performance goals: precision "free" adjustment for maximum fluidity, or perfect high precision setting for all-weather rides.
Zicral: A highly resistant and lightweight aluminium alloy for spokes.
ISM: 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).
Tracomp: Traction Compression. Tracomp carbon fiber spokes works in traction and compression: - under normal loads, wheel deflection is limited by the very high traction resistance of carbon fibers. - under greater loads, where a normal wheel would flex more because of one of its spoke loosening, Tracomp spokes enter into compression and keep supporting the rim, preventing any further wheel deflection.
Exalith: Mavic exclusive treatment for aluminium alloy that reinforces the rim while allowing us to make it thinner. The result is a more durable and lighter rim with a distinctive full black look. To be used with special Mavic Exalith brake pads Specific hard coating formulation penetrates the alloy to reinforce it Slow braking wear enables a thinner and lighter braking surface Exclusive full black look. A good tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s potential and even enhance its performance. Therefore, the expected benefits of the front tyre are different from the rear one. Ride the Right Link! 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 break
