Mavic Comete Pro Carbon SL UST Disc Wheel
It's pretty widely accepted that aero trumps weight in most road riding scenarios and the addition of some deeper section wheels on your sleek road machine have the ability to add some serious speed to your ride. Leave it to the French wheel wizards at Mavic to add its wonderful tubeless technology and disc brakes to the mix with its Comete Pro Carbon SL UST Disc Wheel, providing you with some solid rocket boosters and a great ride with the promise of being able to slow you down with authority. Sitting at a healthy 64mm depth, these wheels simply slice through the wind during high-speed races and on fast training rides. In fact, the pros on World Tour Team AG2R-La Mondiale call on the Comete Pros for the flatter races, albeit in the tubular and rim brake guise, however, in the real world we aren't lucky enough to have a team car following us on every ride and could care less of the additional grams that comes with more powerful braking. So, the tubeless, disc brake version is our pick since, more often than not, we aren't toeing the start line of a race. The depth not only helps the air stay attached for less turbulence and thus, less drag, but it also adds a heap load of stiffness, all while coming in at a respectable 1755-grams for the set. As part of the latest generation of wheelsets in Mavic's lineup, it incorporates the newest rim technologies giving you an absolute aerodynamic advantage on your ride in almost every conceivable situation. The rim is constructed of 3k carbon fiber to a new NACA profile rim that's 64mm deep and 26mm wide, a perfect pairing with today's modern, wider tires. Mavic spent an extensive amount of time testing the profile in the wind-tunnel, honing its shape to provide ultra-low drag numbers while offering incredible stability in blustery conditions. The resulting shape is wide and rounded which helps with races against the clock, powering the breakaway, or sprinting for the finish of the biggest crit of the season, all without fee...
