The 2014 Mavic Cosmic Carbone SLE M10 wheelset offers the professional balance of aerodynamics and light weight that you would expect from much more expensive carbon wheelset with the ease of serviceability and lower price of an aluminum clincher. The 52mm carbon fairing lets the wheels knife through the air, ISM (Inter Spoke Milling) reduces weight and inertia and finally Extralight hubs with aero flanges all contribute to a wheelset that is both light and extremely aerodynamic.
Mavic has improved their extremely effective alloy hardening treatment with Exalith 2. The Exalith 2 treatment hardens the rim 10 times more than the Maxtal alloy would be on its own. This allows Mavic to make the material thinner because of it's increased strength which in turn reduces weight. Because of Exalith 2, the brake track is also much harder and will last much longer, along with improving stopping distance and braking power thanks to the supplied brake pads and special brake track machining. The stealth anthracite grey look produced by the Exalith treatment is an awesome added bonus.
Standard features include QRM+ bearings, 52mm carbon air foils, Time-tested and easily serviceable bladed steel spokes, and the FTS-L freehub system which stands for Force Transfer System - Light. It's Mavic's lightest and best freehub assembly, guaranteeing excellent power transfer. The SLE wheels include individually selected tires to match the performance characteristics of the wheels. The Cosmic Carbone SLE wheels come with Mavic's Grip Link front tire and Power Link rear tire. The tires have different durometers catered to the performance needs of a front and rear tire.
The Mavic Cosmic Carbone SLE with Exalith 2 is a truly versatile race wheelset. With braking performance that other wheelsets can only dream of (wet and dry), and aerodynamics, stiffness, and bearings on par with the best wheels in the business, the Cosmic Carbone SLEs are hard to pass up.
