Turn your road steed into a climbing thoroughbred with Mavic's R-SYS wheels. These amazing hoops combine Mavic's tried-and-true technologies, such as their uber-light Maxtal rims and stiff, reliable QRM+ hubs with their revolutionary tubular carbon spokes. It all drastically reduces weight while also significantly increasing stiffness for an incredible ride. For even more speed, these slick wheels come shod in Mavic's Yksion tires that feature a harder center compound and soft shoulders to reduce rolling resistance and boost cornering traction.
|Mavic's ISM (Inter Spoke Milling) 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 Maxtal rim uses 6000 aluminum, which is 30% stronger than 6106 aluminum. This allows Mavic to build lighter rims for quick acceleration.||Mavic's UB Control technology features milled braking surfaces to improve braking friction and eliminate shuddering.|
|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 and more comfortable ride.|
|Mavic's QRM+ hubs offer low rolling resistance for more speed. Their sealed bearings promise smooth, low-maintenance operation for years of worry-free riding.||Mavic's FTS-L (Force Transfer System Light) ensures the cassette drive mechanism is lightweight and ultra strong.|
|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.||Mavic's PowerLink rear tire is a dual-compound tire designed to reduce rolling resistance and maximize power transfer. The PowerLink also features a strong anti-puncture Nylon barrier.|
