The Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon SL wheelset was originally designed to meet the demands of pro teams who wanted a tubular carbon rim for the toughest conditions including the infamous cobblestones of Paris-Roubaix.
Mavic went through intensive testing, putting an incredible number of prototypes through their paces until they achieved the standards their athletes demanded. Since then the Cosmic Pro Carbon SL T has won Paris-Roubaix and countless other demanding pro and amateur races. The carbon rims feature a unique depth-to-width ratio. At 40mm tall and 25mm wide, they deliver the perfect blend of aerodynamics, light weight, excellent tire support and strength. The 3K carbon external layer hides an incredibly complex inside lay-up using multiple types of carbon fiber that are hand-placed for complete precision. The carbon-fiber rims are engineered using Mavic's iTgMAX technology, which uses a laser treatment to remove the first layer of resin in the brake track. This innovative process improves braking performance and reliability in dry or wet conditions without compromising strength.
These unique rims attach to hubs that feature smooth, front adjustable cartridge bearings (QRM+ & QRM Auto) and Mavic's lightweight, fast-engaging Instant Drive 360 freewheel system.
Technologies of Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon SL
Inside the Cosmic Pro Carbon the freewheel-generation named Instant Drive 360
will be used - it makes a perfect hub: low weight, minimized friction, quick force-closure, high axle-stiffness and enormously long lifetime. And if maintenance should be necessary, or altering the axle-standard, it is tool-free and easier than ever before.
- The spokes are laced radially on the drive side and crossed 2 on the non drive side to maximize drive side dish, thus providing a better spoke tension balance between left and right flanges. Further advantages: higher stiffness under heavy loads for crystal clear energy transmission and better wheel stability for fewer maintenance.
(Qualité Roulements Mavic® Plus) - Mavic's most demanding level. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system. Tight tolerances for high rolling efficiency. Quick adjustment according to performance goals: precision "free" adjustment for maximum fluidity, or perfect high precision setting for all-weather rides.
(Qualité de Roulements Mavic Auto) - Mavic's latest innovation. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance. Their preload is automatically adjusted to guarantee a perfect spin with no play on the long run
provides strong brake-performance.
TgMAX technology consists in laying up several types of high technology resins, then fixing them using a proprietary heat treatment process to achieve the highest possible resistance to braking heat. The result is consistent and efficient braking, whatever the climate conditions.
