Reliable, lightweight and impressively versatile. The Mavic Ksyrium Elite UST Clincher Wheelset 2018 includes all the benefits you find in Mavic’s higher end products thanks to trickle down technology, but also offers the riders heightened puncture resistance thanks to its UST Tubeless Ready rim. Combined with Mavic’s Yksion Pro UST tyres, you’ll get the grip, ride quality and durability you yearn for every time you head out on the bike.
The overall weight of the Ksyrium Elite UST Wheelset is impressively low, too. At 1490g for the pair, the wheel remains lightweight enough for efficient climbing, but heavy enough for you to remain confident it’ll perform in every situation.
Mavic’s patented Fore Drilling creates a much stronger connection between the spokes and the rim, allowing you to lay down the power with utmost confidence that you’re as efficient as possible. This technology actually stops the rim being drilled and losing stiffness, but instead pushes the bridge inside, allowing the spoke to actually be directly screwed in.
Isopulse technology furthers this rigidity by lacing the spokes radially on the drive side, but remain 2 crossed on the non-drive side to maximise drive side disk. In layman's terms, it provides a better spoke tension balance between the left and right flanges, making for a more reliable, stronger wheel.
Bearings in the freehub are also double sealed with C3 internal clearance, and the Force Transfer System Light (FTS-L) reinforces the key transmission components by keeping the entire hub body 100% aluminium for optimum strength.
