The Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon SL Clincher Wheelset isn’t just one of the most versatile, stiffest and lightweight wheels that Mavic produce, they also provide incredible levels of control and remain stiff through any sudden, explosive burst of power. This is thanks to heavily researched and tested technology, such as their GripLink and Isopulse features.
Made from 3K carbon fibre, this wheelset weighs in at an impressive 1450 grams, but doesn’t skip out on any stiffness. This is down to a number of features, from Mavic’s IsoPulse technology that provides optimum energy transfer through radially laced spokes on the drive side and crossed 2 on the non-drive side to the maximise side dish for aerodyanmic performance, to a 25mm external width (17mm internal) to enhance the tyre integration and improve handling.
Mavic has included their iTgMAX technology with this wheelset. This technology integrated a carbon fibre inner rim bed alongside a unique one-piece rim contour to enhance braking performance.
A 40mm rim profile has been adopted alongside a 25mm external width (17mm internal) that not just reduces drag, but integrates the tyre perfectly and gives superior handling in all conditions. Rolling resistance is also reduced through Mavic’s GripLink and PowerLink tyres. These offer an improved ride thanks to their light and supple high-density casing. Grip is optimised with Mavic’s a unique tread pattern.
Split-second engagement can be the difference between first and second place, so Mavic’s Instant Drive 360 freewheel system has been incorporated to engage at an angle of only 9 degrees. A large contactless rubber seal provides low enough friction for this to happen, whilst high-level end caps makes this super versatile.
The tyres are Mavic’s Yksion Pro GripLink (front) and PowerLink (rear) with a single compound and 127 TPI casing, making for a smooth, reliable and durable ride.
This wheelset is compatible with Shimano/SRAM or Campagnolo and is convertible to XD-R with an optional driver body.
