Good day all,
Searched the forum and found nothing recent.
Jenson USA has Mavic R-Sys wheelset '09 front '10 rear for $849. Does anyone have feedback on these wheels? I would hope that Jenson would have pulled any wheels that were involved from stock.
I do have an e-mail to them pending response.

I think it's a bad design and would not use them even if they are "fixed". For that money, some nice aero wheels make more sense to me than those parachutes.

The recall was for for the 1st gen, over 3 years ago, old news which doesn't affect any wheels currently availble for sale from a Mavic reseller.

Thanks for the responses. I choose to buy Ksyrium SLs ($788)from Lick Bike. I could not wrap my head around the idea of Carbon Spokes. The SLs should be much better than my 7 year old Elites.
