These newly designed Mavic Ksyriums provide the perfect training wheel. Designed to be light and wide with; ISM machined, welded rims, 17mm internal width for low rolling resistance and extra comfort ands 25mm Light Yksion Elite tyres. These wheels also provide reliable stiffness whilst proving to be dynamic thanks to their isopulse lacing, optimized bearing placement and straight pull bladed spokes. And of course these Ksyrium's come with the usual reliable durability that we have come to expect from Mavic boasting; H2 reinforced spoke holes, sealed cartridge bearings and welded rims for strength and braking efficiency.
The Ksyrium Elites include the same high-tech features from the Ksyrium SLS but at an even more attractive price-point. Mavic’s exclusive and patented Fore Drilling creates a strong and durable connection of the spokes to the rim while the innovative Isopulse lacing improves stability and lateral stiffness under heavy loads such as sprinting or climbing.
The new, wider 2015 re-design is great for:
• Lower rolling resistance - For the same tyre pressure the rolling resistance is reduced by 13%
• Greater comfort - While maintaining the same rolling resistance you can lower the tyre pressure by 20psi
• Improved puncture performance - A bigger gap between the road and the edge of the rim reduces the chance of a pinch flat or “snake-bite”
All of this performance is achieved without any weight penalty, thanks to the use of Mavic's exclusive patented ISM4D technology. Staying true to the Elite philosophy, to offer the best technology available where it really matters, ISM4D leaves the exact amount of material around the spokes to maximise the balance between durability, strength and weight. The result is a wide yet super-light rim at just 405g.
The finish has also been re-designed and upgraded using a combination of matt and glossy contrasting to compliment the high performance and technology of the wheelset. Available in three colour options depending on your personal preference and to match your bike and equipment - black on black, black with red highlights and black with blue highlights.
The new Ksyrium Elite comes fitted with Mavic's Yksion Pro tyre. The Yksion Pro Griplink is optimised for front wheel use thanks to its sticky compound, water evacuation tread pattern and super strong Kevlar flat protection, it will keep you safe on any road surface and in all weather conditions. The rear wheel comes with the Yksion Pro Powerlink with its specially designed compound, supple nylon reinforced casing and tread pattern to increase rolling efficiency. The result is not only a fast and dependable performing tyre system but one that is also extremely light weight at just 210g in a generous and comfortable 25mm width.
