'Open Sport' has now been replaced with 'Open Elite'. Both are virtually indistinguishable from MA3. All use the same ERD which is bigger than that found in Open Pro, using spokes ~1.5mm longer than in Open Pro. If the spokes are the correct length with Open Pro they will definitely be too short with Open Sport; however if they were over length with Open Pro they will work fine with Open Sport.

These rims are OK but (like all Mavic single-eyelet HP rims, going right back the Module <E>) they are prone to cracking on DS rear positions.  Where they have a wear-indicating groove in the brake surface, this often makes for slightly peculiar braking characteristics.
