For over a decade, Mavic’s Ksyrium Elite has stood for high reliability, light weight, and versatility. Mavic’s exclusive and patented Fore Drilling creates a strong, durable connection of the spokes to the rim, while their innovative Isopulse lacing improves stability and lateral stiffness under heavy loads, such as sprinting or climbing. The slightly wider rim has an internal width of 17mm, which lowers rolling resistance by 13% and provides 18% more tire air volume, which helps you avoid pinch flats. This extra width comes at zero weight penalty, thanks to ISM 4D, which removes rim material where it's not needed and leaves it where stresses are greatest, such as around the spokes. This means you get an incredibly lightweight rim with all the strength, stiffness, and fatigue resistance you expect from Mavic. The Ksyrium Elites include Mavic’s tried-and-true Yksion Pro tires, featuring front- and rear-specific designs optimized for the different demands each tire must meet, resulting in a beautifully integrated wheel-tire system you can trust.
