The Ksyrium SL S Clincher Wheelset is one of Mavic's signature wheelsets. These wheels are made to take the beatings of rough city streets and maintain their their performance for years to come. The Ksyrium SL wheels are lightweight, strong, and responsive. Always forward thinking in its design process, Mavic improved the rim construction on the latest iteration and included its wheel-tire system to complete your ride experience. The consistent ride quality make the Ksyrium SL S are a natural choice for a do-it-all training and racing wheelset. The Ksryium SL S rims are made with Mavic's Maxtal aluminum. They're joined with an SUP arc weld on the seam, so the rims have a higher strength to weight ratio than conventional alloy rims. The SUP weld also makes for zero brake chatter where the seam is welded. To add to the stiffness of the rim, Fore drilling is used on the lower rim bridge, leaving the upper bridge intact so the spoke nipples are threaded in from the bottom only, which increases the stiffness of the rim by 20 percent. To further strengthen the rim and shed unnecessary weight, Mavic uses a technology called Inter Spoke Milling 3D. This means that the rim is finished with a milled braking surface, which improves braking friction and eliminates brake shudder. The Ksyrium SL S wheelset rolls on Mavic carbon and alloy hubs. The oversized, black, carbon bodied front hub uses aluminum flanges to add stiffness to the wheel. Both hubs use double-sealed, C3 cartridge bearings, which are micro-adjustable. For more stability in the rear hub, Mavic uses FTS-L reinforcement between the pawl and hub body; the two stainless steel inserts add strength without much weight.Black, bladed, straight pull, Zicral aluminum spokes lace to the rim in a radial pattern on the front. The rear hub uses Mavic's Isopulse lacing design -- radial on the drive-side and a two-cross pattern on the non drive-side.
