Mavic Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL Disc Wheelset - Clincher description:
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 smugly by its side with a similar full-carbon rim construction and the incomparable stopping confidence of disc-brakes.

This pattern provides the right balance of stiffness, preparing the wheels to manage the added torque from disc brakes and reducing wobbles whi...
