Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon SL C Wheels
An ultralite carbon clincher wheelset offering superior aerodynamic performance and best in class braking and reliability.Newly launched this year the new Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon SL C feature a wider ‘U’ shaped profile and improved brake track over the previous Mavic Cosmic 40C wheels. The new Pro Carbon SL C is also lighter than its predecessor too, with a claimed weight of 1450g vs the 1550g for the Cosmic 40C.
The aero profiled Cosmic Pro Clincher offers best in test braking, The secret behind the excellent braking, is said to lie in the manufacturing process. Mavic has a patented process which uses a laser to prepare the braking surface. This burns away the surface resin leaving the carbon fibres intact and exposed. It has also developed a heat curing process to ensure that its rims can tolerate braking temperatures of up to 200ºC, which is at the extreme of potential real world conditions.
