No matter the route or the conditions, Mavic's Ksyrium SLRs are built to excel. Mavic's feathery Maxtal aluminum rims are laced to their sublimely smooth QRM+ hubs with aero Zircal spokes to create wheels that dominate on the climbs and lay down serious speed on the flats. As an added bonus, Mavic supplies their Exalith brake track treatment that boosts durability and improves all-weather braking for serious control that you can feel whenever the road tilts down. And, the SLRs come complete with Mavic's Yksion Pro clinchers that boast a firmer center tread and softer shoulders for reduced rolling resistance and increased cornering traction. Whether it's training day or race day, the Ksyrium SLRs are the perfect synthesis of low weight, stiffness and reliability.
|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 Maxtal rim uses 6000 aluminum, which is 30% stronger than 6106 aluminum. This allows Mavic to build lighter rims for quick acceleration.||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 SUP rims boast welded and milled joints for superior strength and wheel balancing.||Mavic's Fore spoke threading technology utilises a threaded rim to create a system that is more resistant to fatigue and more rigid for high stiffness.|
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.
