When creating the R-Sys, Mavic's goal was to provide gran fondo racers and all cyclists who love the mountains with the best possible wheel choice to achieve their climbing goals. The R-Sys SLR pushes the limits of aluminum-rimmed wheel design with the technological advantages you expect from the legendary wheel-maker to result in the lightest clincher wheel in Mavic's lineup. The exceptionally strong Maxtal alloy is streamlined into lightweight, yet strong rims by the ISM 4D process, which machines away excess material from where it is not needed. Mavic's Tracomp spokes work both in traction and compression, delivering significant advantages over traditional wheel designs that rely entirely on spokes that are strictly in tension. Under heavy loads, instead of losing their tension, Tracomp spokes enter into compression and continue to support the wheel with a high degree of lateral stiffness, all while lowering overall wheel weight and rotating mass, which means stiffer, lighter, more efficient wheels. This ultralight wheel spins effortlessly on QRM SL hubs, housing smooth and durable bearings in a very weight-optimized hub body.
R-Sys SLR wheels come equipped with Mavic’s Yksion Pro tires, featuring front- and rear-specific designs constructed according to the differing demands you place on each. These wheels benefit from an Exalith 2 rim finish, which delivers enhanced braking performance in wet and dry conditions while extending the longevity of the braking surfaces, as well as the appearance of the rim. Experience the flyweight result of more than 100 years of expertise on Mavic’s R-Sys SLR wheels.
