COSMIC SLR 45
COSMIC SLR 45 Less weight where it matters
The drive to reduce weight may be a universal obsession for every cyclist, but not every gram is created equal. A rotating mass requires additional kinetic energy to accelerate, meaning that rim weight directly correlates with snappy accelerations and out-of-the-saddle kicks. While tubeless wheels roll faster, they come with added weight and the hassle of a rim tape. In the quest for a lightweight solution with no compromise on rigidity, our engineers went back to the drawing board and came up with our new Cosmic SLR45 wheelset.
Our Fore Carbon Technology lies at the heart of the Cosmic SLR45 design. It’s the result of years of research and combines low weight and improved tubeless assembly with increased rigidity and ease of repair. 10% lighter and stronger than traditional wheel designs, our Fore Carbon Technology incorporates spokes that fit directly into a co-molded metallic insert that avoids the need to drill the upper rim bridge. This negates the need for rim tape, makes for easy repairs, and saves an additional 30g per rim.
The Cosmic SLR45 comes equipped with the all-new Infinity Hub that harnesses a trinity of hallmarks that enhance power transfer, durability, and compatibility. Easily serviceable without the need for specialized tools, the Instant Drive 360 freewheel technology ensures quick engagement along with high rigidity and durability and offers automatic bearing preload adjustment (QRM Auto). Designed for compatibility and ease of use, the Infinity Hub can be converted to all major freewheel drive options and axle dimensions.
Less inertia and lower weight ensure responsive acceleration and faster climbing
New rim laminate and the Fore Carbon spoke attachment saves 40g and eliminates rim tape — an additional 30g saving. The 45mm deep and 26mm wide NACA rim profile is disc-brake-optimized. Patented lightweight aero spokes.
Increased lateral stiffness for increased power transfer
Fore Carbon Technology keeps the rim upper bridge solid and leads to a stiffer rim. A stiff axle, durable bearings, and an all-new hub design with optimized spoke lacing and tension. ID360 freewheel technology enables increased compatibility and optimal power transfer.
Refined tubeless technology ensures faster rolling and easy setup and maintenance
No tubes mean less friction, improved efficiency and grip, and a reduced risk of punctures. An all-new rim bed form makes mounting and changing tires effortless. Fore Carbon drilling technology makes rim tape a thing of the past.
Mavic Tyre Sealant is an effective tyre sealant, that prevents flat by instantly sealing up to 3 mm holes in the tyre
