Mavic Cosmic Carbone SLE Wheel/Tire Set

When the pace inches up, the road gets twistier and the peloton stretches into a long, thin line, you'll be glad Mavic's Cosmic Carbone SLEs are underneath you. They combine the quickness and aerodynamics of deep-dish carbon fairings with the convenience and unparalleled braking power of Mavic's Exalith-enhanced aluminum clincher rims for world-class speed and precision handling. If that wasn't enough, you also get the MPH-boosting benefits of aero bladed spokes and Mavic's impressively slippery QRM+ hubs. And, wrapped around these mighty wheels are Mavic's Yksion tires that combine a quick-rolling center tread with grippy shoulders to reduce rolling resistance and boost cornering traction.

Features and Information

  • Learn more about cassette compatibility.
  • Mavic's Maxtal rim uses 6000 aluminum, which is 30% stronger than 6106 aluminum.
  • Mavic’s Exalith 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 SUP rims boast welded and milled joints for superior strength and wheel balancing.
  • Mavic's QRM+ hubs offer low-rolling resistance for more speed and feature sealed bearings for easy maintenance.
  • Mavic's FTS-L (Force Transfer System Light) ensures the cassette drive mechanism is ultra strong and light.

I upgraded my wheels

      I just bought these wheels last week and a major improvement happened immediately. Last week on a 25 mile ride with moderate Illinois hills and no wind on a solo ride my average speed for the ride was 20.5 mph. This week with the new tires on the same ride with a 10-15 mph wind I rode at a 21.6 mph pace and I put in a brick patio for 8 hours before I rode. What a great improvement these tires made. In addition, the smoother ride is easier on my arms.
