Mavic - Ksyrium Elite UST
Built from Mavic's own Maxtal alloy, these durable and lightweight wheels are full of modern tech to have you speeding to the podium ahead of the pack. Strengthened by straightpull, steel spokes they maintain their shape and suppleness no matter the terrain, laced radially on the front and in an Isopulse pattern on the back to prevent bend and pressure breaks.
Spinning on aluminium sealed cartridge bearing hubs and covered by Yksion Pro UST tyres, the rear wheel features an FTS-L freehub with Shimano 11-speed freewheel compatibility and supplies fantastic power transfer as you climb and compete for first place.
UST Tubeless Ready: The UST concept improves traction, control and comfort while reducing inertia and flats. The Tubeless Ready construction results in a lighter tyre for improved performance.
ISM 4D (Inter Spoke Milling 4 Dimensions): An exclusive Mavic patented concept, ISM 4D significantly reduces weight and inertia without compromising durability. Quicker accelerations, better handling and more resistance; the right mix to make the most of any ride. The smooth profile also helps to reduce aerodynamic drag.
Isopulse: Optimum energy transfers. The spokes are laced radially on the drive side and 2x crossed on the non-drive side to maximise drive side dish, thus providing a better spoke tension balance between left and right flanges.
Higher stiffness under heavy loads for crystal clear energy transmission
Better wheel stability means less maintenance
MAXTAL: Exclusive to Mavic, this specific aluminium alloy offers a higher strength to weight ratio than conventional 6106 alloy.
QRM+ (Qualité de Roulements Mavic): Mavic only uses high-quality sealed cartridge bearings. On QRM wheels, they feature double sealing (2RS or LLU) together with tight C3 internal clearance.
FTS-L: Force Transfer System Light Reinforcement of key transmission components. The contact area between the pawl and the hub body in reinforced by two stainless steel inserts, which allows the use of a 100% aluminium hub body.
UB Control: The braking surfaces are precisely CNC machined to ensure consistent and reliable braking control.
