It's hard not to get excited about Mavic's Tubeless Comete Pro Carbon SL UST Wheelset. It has a lot of modern tech going on to help you perform at your best on race day. As some of the lightest wheelsets in its category, the ride is addictive encouraging you to accelerate and sprint any chance you get on these responsive wheels. It'd be a shame to only reserve them just for days when you pin on a number so it's good to know that they're durable enough to ride every day. This is Mavic's most aerodynamic carbon rim paired with the incredible rolling efficiency of road tubeless and impressive braking when you have to rein in all that speed.
As one of Mavic's latest road wheelsets, it incorporates the latest rim technologies giving you a definite aerodynamic advantage on your ride. The rim profile is built using 3k carbon fiber to a new NACA profile rim that’s 64mm deep and 26mm wide, perfect for today's modern wider tires. Mavic spent countless hours testing in the wind-tunnel to hone this airfoil into a shape that produces the lowest drag possible and still offered stability in windy conditions. The resulting wide, rounded shape helps when racing against the clock, driving the breakaway, or the final dash to the line without feeling sketchy in a crosswind so you can stay in an aero tuck or on your aerobar extensions longer.
When it's time to scrub speed, you'll quickly come to love the iTgMax carbon rim technology. A laser is utilized to remove the first layer of resin on the brake track allowing the pads to get a better bite and create more friction. This process helps improves braking on sinuous canyon roads no matter if your local weather is in the midst of a drought or you ride through a surprise spring shower.
Mavic's all-new UST Road Tubeless technology has been a revolution for us. Mavic claims an improvement in rolling efficiency up to 15% when compared to non-tubeless tires at equal air pressure. Of course, we're familiar enough with road tubeless that we've come to expect the improved ride quality that comes with running lower air pressures allowing more confident cornering and improved traction. What we aren't so familiar with is the ease of the tubeless setup. Mavic engineered super tight tolerances between the rim and tire so it's easy to install by hand, beads up with your typical floor pump and reliably holds air. The wheels come with Mavic's Yksion Pro UST tires that are partly responsible for the easy setup and roll fast while remaining grippy and puncture free.
The Instant Drive 360 freehub has a 9-degree engagement system for quick acceleration. QRM bearings are double sealed to keep contaminants out so the hubs keep spinning freely season after season. Finally, Isopulse spoke lacing sees radially laced spokes on the drive side with a 2x on the non-drive helping to balance spoke tensions and improve stiffness on those out of the saddle climbs and sprints.
