Hi,

There seems to be 2 version of these wheels in the market. The Mavic cosmic pro carbon sl c and the mavic pro carbon sl c RIB(ride n believe). Both wheels seems to have the same specs but the price of the RIB is a lot cheaper. Are these wheels exactly the same with just different decals?

Thanks

Standard version

That's very weird! I have the normal version, and at the time that I bought (6 months ago) I did not come across of this RIB version.

Does it mean that the 2 wheels are exactly the same?

Yes, the RIB wheels are demo sets that each shop can buy in one pair per season of each type at a heavily discounted rate.

At the end of each season the shop sells them used. Though some shops may just decide to skip the part where they let people demo them at all and sell them straight away.
