An hors categorie wheel for hors categorie races.
The Mavic R-Sys SLR Tubular is for nimble and aggressive climbers who demand a superlight wheel, and the supple, responsive ride quality that a tubular tire offers. For the same reason, it's the wheel used by elite teams like Garmin-Barracuda and Liquigas-Cannondale on mountainous pro tour stages that stretch high into the clouds. You just get to enjoy it at the local competitive level, where you'll decimate anyone that tries to hold your wheel on climbs that push past a 12% average grade. Despite coming in under a feathery 1300 grams for a pair, the R-Sys SLR is also loved by pros on hilly spring classics courses like the brutal Ronde van Vlaanderan, where its light weight enables quick acceleration up steep climbs, but legendary durability inspires confidence across the roughest roads Belgium could muster.
- Tracomp carbon fiber spokes keep the wheel stiff and responsive without compromising weight or durability
- Rim sections between each spoke are milled out with Mavic's signature ISM process to further reduce weight
- Exalith-treated braking surface ensures powerful braking throughout the life of the wheel (brake pads included)
- Optimized for use with Mavic's tubular Griplink/Powerlink wheel-tire system
