Mavic Exalith II Brake Pads $24.99
The right tool for the Exalith job.
Exalith, a treatment given to Mavic's upper-echelon of wheels, penetrates the rim's alloy in order to delay rim wear and to enhance braking power. It's also a key component in maintaining the rim's distinctive Anthracite Grey color. However, you need to use the Mavic Exalith II Brake Pads in order to enjoy these benefits.
These Mavic brake pads are specifically designed to work with Mavic's Cosmic Carbone SLR, Cosmic Carbone SLE, R-Sys SLR, and Ksyrium SLR rims. In order to prevent premature wear of the rim, Mavic recommends only using these Exalith II Exalith II Brake Pads.
Please note that these pads are sold as a pair, and that they're available for both post-2000 Campagnolo and SRAM/Shimano calipers.

Can you use these brake pads with other alloy clincher wheels?
These are actually only good for Exalith rims. The brake pad is a VERY hard compound, and it would not provide sufficient friction for a regular aluminum rim.
