Isn't it something like doing the same thing expecting a different outcome ? So why am I riding Mavic wheels you may ask after my 2 year ordeal with the Crossmax 29er wheels ? Well I got a killer deal on a set of Kysrium SLR's and could not pass them up at that below cost price for new wheels. Plus a few years have past right ? Well at least that's what I keep telling myself.
So let me skip to the coles notes on these. Superlight and very very strong. A bit of wheel flex with the rear non drive side carbon spokes. Braking is great ( Exalith rim treatment ) but expect MEGA noise unless you run a extreme toe in. ( 1mm on front 3mm on tailing ). Stealth look and the tires are pretty good too. Wore through a new set of Mavic Exalith pads on the downhills of NC.
I have about 1000 km on them so far so we will see how well they hold up after a summer of Grand Fondos and club rides.
