This is the second post of 2011 Mavic road wheels, this time with the full range of Cosmic, R-Sys and Ksyrium wheels. The first post has more specs and their new tubular and clincher tire systems.
Word is, Mavic has created a special, super-hard new braking surface called Exalith, which goes on the Cosmic Carbone SLR, R-Sys SLR and Ksyrium SLR. It comes with special brake pads, too.
Shown above is the Cosmic Carbone SLR. Get a face full o’ photos of this and the rest of the new hoops after the break…
Click on any photo to see it giant sized.

Weights: 520g front / 665g rear / 1185g pair. Ridiculous. The weight per pair with Mavic’s WTS “Wheel Tire System” is 1765g.
