For over a decade, the Ksyrium Elite has stood for high reliability, low weight and versatility.
This revised version makes it easier than ever to experience the benefits of a tubeless system. In combination with the Yksion Elite UST tubeless tyres, initial fitting, tyre changing and maintenance are particularly easy. Without a tube, internal friction is reduced, which further reduces rolling resistance and therefore rolls even faster over any surface. Now the tyre pressure can be further reduced for smoother comfort and more control on rough roads - without increased risk of breakdown. The puncture protection is also better otherwise, so you can approach further tours with 100% confidence.
Mavic's patented Fore-rim holes create a stronger connection between the spokes and the rim. And the Isopulse spoke system increases stability and lateral stiffness under high loads, such as during sprints or steep climbs. Patented ISM 4D technology eliminates any excess material from the rim, but leaves the area around the rim holes where the load is greatest untouched.
Rolls faster and smoother - with less risk of puncture
UST Road Tubeless technology reduces rolling resistance and increases speed by eliminating friction between tyre and tube. Thanks to UST Road Tubeless technology, you can drive with lower tyre pressure for smoother driving and less risk of punctures. The patented UST system creates the perfect unity of wheel and tyre - as well as easy installation and tyre change.
