What Mavic Spoke do I need and where?

I have a Mavic Kysirium SSC front wheel. It has a broken spoke. The spoke appears to measure 289mm - 290mm. But I do not see these for sale anywhere. Where can I get this? Thank you.

Try this place. If this is not the exact spoke check out some of the others they have for different wheels. Mavic Ksyrium SSC SL Black (1999-2003) - RogueMechanic (mavicparts.com)

This can be quite the challenge given the many versions of the various wheels Mavic has called Ksyrium over the years AND since many shops gave up trying to keep Mavic spokes in stock. If you know the production year (which could be other then the year purchased) it might help narrow down the selection real fast.

At work we have a box of many Mavic specific spokes and we have to sort through them and compare with either an unbroken one in hand or with the wheel in hand. Andy

This is why I threw away all of our Mavic spokes. The fact that I absolutely despise Mavic wheels helped.

Agree with their "component" wheels. But am a life long user/lover of their bare rims. Andy (who just built up an EX721 for a friend a few days ago)

I went to the LBS & they ordered one (or several) in that situation. You also need the right oddball spoke wrench.

Apparently you cannot order these new from Mavic. I already have the special spoke wrench.

Are you referring to a privet person or a shop doing the ordering? (Most suppliers/manufacturer's are restricted from direct to consumer sales because of either contractional obligations or lack the state sales tax collecting systems to legally sell). Or are you not yet saying because the spokes are not in stock at Mavic's USA distributor? Or because Mavic is still in the transition after going bankrupt and being sold via the French court system?

I am unsure of those issues with Mavic. I was referring to that they are no longer being produced as replacement parts. Any parts that are available would be leftovers already on hand.

I was also told that the proper way to measure these spokes was from the bottom edge of the ball on either end. So I really need a 285 mm rather than a 290 mm.

Mavic does not support their products beyond 6 years after the end of a model run, and that was before the current bankruptcy situation . The best hope you have is this guy. https://www.mavicparts.com/
