Mavic Ksyrium Pro Exalith SL WTS Clincher Road Wheelset - 2017
The Ksyrium Pro Exalith SL is a lighter and stiffer version of Ksyrium Pro Exalith. It pushes weight-saving one step further, making it a high performance choice for any kind of ride. Like the Pro Exalith, this wheel features the same Fore technology and Zicral spokes that bring higher stiffness and strength at a very low weight. The Ksyrium Pro Exalith SL can be used with tyre from 23mm to 28mm for even more comfort. 
 
This Exalith braking technology consists of a chemical treatment of the aluminium alloy that slows down wear, notably at the brake track. It also shortens braking distance by 20% in dry and wet conditions and provides a stunning all black finish, included on the brake track, that will keep its colour for thousands of kilometres.

The moment you step on the pedal, it gently moves lightly When I used it on a ride which I always ride, I can ride a light uphill slope with the same feeling as a flatland, and I was able to run faster than usual. The sound of the brake is peculiar, it is surprising at first, but when it gets used a little it turns into a good sound
I needed a new pair of wheels for my Cervelo R3 I have been using Mavic Cosmic Elite wheels these are so much better they are lighter, and much more responsive the braking surface is excellent although I am suffering from some brake squeal from the front rims perhaps the pads needs more time to bed in, I replaced the Mavic tyres with Conti 4000s II and this is a great combination I have no regrets in buying these wheels well impressed with the stopping power for the fast descents. Top Marks..... Great service from Merlin.....
First of all, looks are cool. It seems to be totally carbon wheel. Acceleration is easy because there is a good reactivity. The fatigue of the long distance is small, it may be thanks to the carbon steel spoke. The usability of the release lever may be worth noting.
Excellent product, well made and very aesthetically pleasing. Very light with a solid feel. Supplied with exalith brake blocks which tend to squeal a bit. Quality of braking greatly enhanced when using the rim/block combination. Also come with necessary tools to maintain the wheel in good order...all in all a top product.
A magnificent looking pair of wheels. Easy to fit as they are complete with tyres. Just pump them up and off you go. But not so, you must fit the correct brake pads supplied with the wheels. Unfortunately mine were delivered with a pair of Campag blocks and a pair of Shimano blocks therefore I had to wait for another pair of Shimano to arrive. However, the wheels do roll well. The only downside is the squealing the brakes make. I have tried to get rid of this to no avail. Performance wise five stars, but the squeal when braking down to four.
Actual weight is a little heavier than what written. 1374g (wheels only). It is a nice good looking wheels. Low speed respond is impressive. It won`t take long to reach 30kph. However, at high speed range (above 40kph flat road) I can't notice any different from starter's wheels set which weight around 1800g. Fulcrum is stiffer and respond better while this wheels are more comfortable. Many review on internet said hub was not so good. I think it is not as smooth as USB hub but good enough and roll smooth. Won`t be a problem at all. I recommend this wheels to people who want a better look for bike, living in a mountain terrain, often ride in wet condition. Or else you should go for carbon wheels at this price point.
