Details

Dance up the climbs, crush the flats, swoop down the descents—do it all with speed and confidence on Mavic's R-SYS SLR wheels. These amazing hoops combine Mavic's tried-and-true technologies, such as their uber-light Maxtal rims with Exalith brake track and stiff, reliable QRM SL hubs with their revolutionary tubular carbon spokes. It all drastically reduces wheel weight while also significantly increasing stiffness for an incredible ride. The included Yksion Pro tires use a fast-rolling, long-wearing center tread with softer rubber on the sides for reduced rolling resistance and excellent cornering grip. These slick wheels and tires team up to bring you to the head of the pack and keep you there.

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 also helps prevent micro cracking at the spoke holes and allows lighter rim weights. 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 ISM (Inter Spoke Milling) 3D 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 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 Zicral spokes are made of aluminum and are 10% stronger than stainless-steel spokes— they're lighter, too. Mavic's Tracomp tubular carbon spokes act in traction (tension) and compression. This allows a stiff wheel to be built with relatively low spoke tension, giving a smoother, more comfortable ride.

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.
