| Merchant: Nashbar Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon SL Disc + Yksion Tubular Road Wheelset. Light, stiff, and aerodynamic, the Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon SL Disc Tubular Wheelset is exceptionally versatile and a superb choice for race-day performance. The 40mm deep, 3K carbon fiber, disc brake-specific rims are wind tunnel optimized as well as very lightweight to provide an optimal balance between aerodynamics, stiffness, and acceleration. Double butted, bladed steel spokes with aluminum nipples add to the wheels' aero slipperiness, are easy to service, and are laced to a pair of sleek, svelte alloy hubs. Mavic has optimized the wheelset's construction for the demands of disc brakes with 24 spokes front and rear for perfect brake torque distribution. The rear hub features Mavic's Isopulse system with spokes laced radially on the drive side and 2x on the non-drive side to maximize drive side dish, thus providing a better spoke tension balance between left and right flanges. The hubs themselves are supremely versatile as included adaptors enable the front hub to be set up for quick release, 12mm thru-axle, and 15mm thru-axle while the rear hub can be configured as either a 10x135mm quick release or 12x142mm thru-axle set up. Not only that, Mavic has provided an incredible pair of tubular tires, too, to complete the package. Their Yksion Pro GripLink tubular front tire ensures excellent cornering grip, low rolling resistance, and long life while the Yksion Pro PowerLink tubular rear tire delivers speed and responsiveness. They each weigh 260 grams and sport a super-supple 210 TPI casing for superb performance.
