Modernizing a classic.

While the rim brake version of Mavic's new Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL Disc Clincher Wheelset basks in the limelight garnered by its iTgMAX braking surface, this wheelset sits quietly by its side with full-carbon rim construction and disc-brake compatibility. With a few extra spokes to manage the additional forces of disc brakes, the Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL brings renowned Mavic reliability in a featherweight package that pairs effortlessly with your shiny new disc-equipped road frame.

Mavic uses 3K carbon fibers to shape the rims in a bullet-nose profile, and while the wheelset isn't specifically called out as "aero", Mavic constructed it specifically with climbing in mind, so the 25mm-deep wheels are dependably stable while riding in crosswinds and tackling winding, long ascents. Mavic also paid close attention to the wheels' impact resistance, which earned high ratings, ensuring the wheels will be able to withstand long days on chip-sealed roads and weather-beaten shoulders while you're dreaming of buttery soft tarmac.

Though it tends to privilege tradition, Mavic shows it's not afraid of well-executed change by becoming the first manufacturer to introduce a mass-produced wheel with a ratchet ring engagement system. The design, referred to as Instant Drive 360, is centered on a 40-tooth, dual ratchet construction that boasts nine degrees of engagement. This marks a significant step forward for factory-built wheels because it features the kind of responsiveness and longevity normally reserved for third party hubs on hand-built wheels.

The Instant Drive 360 hubs also feature more reliable, no-contact seals as a barrier against damaging road grit, and they save a claimed 40g compared to the FTS-L hubs. The new hubs are laced to the rims with 24 straight-pull steel spokes arranged in Mavic's Isopulse pattern, with radial drive-side and two-cross non-drive side. This pattern provides the right balance of stiffness, preparing the wheels to manage the added torque from disc brakes and reducing wobbles while braking on steep descents.

The Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL Disc Clincher Wheelset includes Mavic's signature Yksion Pro tires, with GripLink up front for increased cornering confidence and PowerLink in back for a smooth, fast rolling ride. Regardless of position, though, both tires receive a nylon breaker for flat protection. Each wheelset is also packaged with front 12mm adapters, rear 12 x 142mm adapters for Instant Drive 360, disc bolts, rim tape, a user guide, and a multifunction adjustment wrench.
