I've been looking through a Mavic catalog and there are so many symbols but not legend to explain them.

Please help fill in the blanks:
ISM: ?
UST: Universal Tubeless System, Mavic's tubeless standard.
Fore: Something to with Mavic's straight pull spokes
Zicral: Mavic's oversized spokes
SUP: ?
Maxtal: ?
FTS L: ?
QRM: ?
ISO Pulse: ?
Ceramic: Mavic's ceramic rim surface Mk.I
Ceramic 2: Mavic's ceramic rim surface Mk.II
SSC: ?
UB Control: ?
CD: ?
H2: ?

SSC - something like Special Service Course, light pro-level gear

UB Control - machined braking surfaces

SUP - welded joint

CD - I'm pretty sure that refers to how the ceramic is applied. plasma beam IIRC

and yes, Maxtal refers to their aluminum alloy
