When we're getting drowsy, we count the bladed spokes on the Mavic Ksyrium SL Wheelset. Something about these ultra-über-premium road wheels wakes us up. Maybe it's the sexy red anodized aluminum and carbon fiber hubs, the front- and rear-specific Maxtal rim profiles, or the unbelievable weight-to-stiffness ratio, but our hearts start pumping pretty hard. The Ksyrium SL Wheelset accelerates like it has hamsters running inside the rims, rails through corners like the TGV, and looks hotter than a furnace. Everybody wants them, few have them, even fewer are worthy of them. Are you?

Here's what others have to say...

Are these rims for tubular or clincher...

Are these rims for tubular or clincher tires and is there any difference between the Shimano and Campy models?

These are Clinchers and YES their is a difference between the Shimano and Campy variant. These include a freehub body specific to your cassette; Shimano will fit SRAM & Shimano and you need the Campy to run Campy.

Do the blades loosen on the rear wheel ?...

Do the blades loosen on the rear wheel ? I have a ping on a power stroke. The funny thing is it is not consistant. It is from the rear I think the left side. Thanks

Write your answer here...I have a ping for the second time. This is after a previous one which was identified as a stripped thread in the rim. Unfortunately just a single spoke replacement did not fix the problem because the thread is in the rim. The whole rim has to be replaced. If warranty doesn't cover it you are looking at some serious cash to replace it!


Great for cross' too

    I run these in clincher and tubular for cross' as well as trail riding on my cross bike. They hold up well and very durable even using as low as 26 lbs (on my cx tubies) and kissing the rim a couple times a lap.

    On my cx bike. No problems at all with the wheels. The engine on the other hand....

    Does anyone know if these are the new 2009's? Also, does Mavic's MP3 warranty apply to online purchases, or is it only applicable to purchases from an LBS?

    Jonathan - These are the 2009 model. The MP3 program is available for all wheels purchased through an authorized Mavic retailer. The MP3 card must be purchased at the same time as the wheel/wheelset. Lastly, you must register on line within seven days of purchasing your MP3 protection. See this link for details and product registration info -


    All around perfection

      These wheels rock. I use them as an everyday training wheel and have never had any problems. The roads I ride on are pretty torn up, but they have performed flawlessly!

      I'M 6'4" 240 WILL THE WHEELS HOLD UP TO...


      Definatley. I'm 6' and 215 and they have worked great on really bad roads. Rims are still true and have never had any problems

      how will the SL's work for a 6'5",200#...

      how will the SL's work for a 6'5",200# biker? Are they durable enough for a bigger rider?

      At 200 lbs, you should be just fine on these wheels. If you're seriously concerned with it, buy them from your local Mavic dealer with MP3, their no questions asked warranty replacement program., the spoke design of the Easton EA90 SLX wheels would bear more weight, they're 13g lighter, and $200 less. That, and Easton kicks Mavic's sorry over-glorified wagon wheel ass (see the R-SYS).
