Ksyrium SSC SL - Are they durable for everyday riding(6 posts)

Ksyrium SSC SL - Are they durable for everyday ridingEgo4Ego

Gang,

Are the Ksyrium SSC SL wheel set durable enough for everyday riding (10-14hrs/week) or it should be used as a race wheel?

I am thinking about investing in a set!

I don't know about the SSC SL, but the pair I bought 2 years ago (when there was one Ksyrium model) is absolutely bomber. I've ridden them all over the place. I doubt the SL's are any different.

I have the previous model, and have had (my friends also) no problems. The new model is lighter due to the scooped out material between the spokes where supposely it's not needed. Maybe not for a 140 lb rider, but who knows for a heavier one. I just think Mavic feels guilty for posting a weight that was incorrect on the original wheels, so they are trying to get to the original published weight.

I would buy the previous model on sale from totalcycling.com. Great deal!

I second the Velomax vote. Strong and light.

Their entry level wheel is around 1650 grams. Other companies' entry level, like the Rolf Vector Comp, wheel in near 1800 and 1900 grams.
