The Mavic Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL C carbon clinchers deliver very impressive all-round performance. They’re light enough to give almost any bike a new lease of life, helped by the stiff construction, and deliver outstanding braking performance for a set of carbon wheels.
Back in March, we headed out to Annecy and Nice for the launch of Mavic’s latest carbon clincher wheelsets: both the Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL C hoops we have here and the deeper Cosmic Pro Carbon SL C wheels.
The two wheelsets share a similar design, with the key difference the rim height. The Ksyriums have a rim depth of 25mm and come with a claimed weight of 1,390g, while the Cosmics are deeper, with a 40mm rim and claimed weight of 1,450g. Do you place more importance on super-low weight or improved aerodynamics? Take your pick – both wheelsets come in at £1,600 with tyres included.
