For over a decade, Ksyrium Elite has stood for reliability, light weight and versatility. This latest version includes the same high-tech features as the Ksyrium SL at an even more attainable price. Key updates include a wider rim shape, now 17mm internally. When combined with our 25mm Yksion Pro tires, the result is an 18% increase in air volume. And extra volume means you can lower tire pressure by 20 PSI while maintaining the same rolling resistance as a narrower rim and tire. The result is improved comfort without sacrificing efficiency. And despite the lower tire pressure, the extra air volume means pinch flats are less likely. Beyond that, our patented Fore Drilling creates a stronger connection between the spokes and the rim, and Isopulse lacing improves stability and lateral stiffness under heavy loads such as sprinting or climbing. All these performance gains are achieved without added weight thanks to our exclusive patented ISM 4D rim technology. This process strategically removes excess material from the rim while maintaining it around the spokes, where tension is applied. The result is a wide yet super-light rim that weighs only 405g. The rims are fitted with 25mm Yksion Pro tires that feature a supple 127 TPI casing, Kevlar beads, and a well-balanced rubber compound that offers the best blend of grip and rolling resistance. They weigh just 210g and feature front/rear specific tread designs for smooth, dependable handling in dry or wet conditions. The finish on the new Ksyrium Elite has also been upgraded with a combination of matte and gloss finishes. The wheel is available in four color options depending on your preference: black on black; black with red highlights; black with blue highlights; and black with white highlights.

GripLink

GripLink

Grip and control
A front tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to hold the ground and control the bike. Therefore, GripLink tyres are optimized for front use, by offering a superior grip and extra puncture protection.

FTS-L

FTS-L

Force Transfer System Light
Reinforcement of key transmission components: the contact area between the pawl and the hub body is reinforced by 2 stainless steel inserts, which allows the use of a 100% aluminum hub body.

UB Control

UB Control

Usiné Brut Control
The braking surfaces are precisely CNC machined.

PowerLink

PowerLink

Low rolling resistance
A rear tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to transfer power and generate speed. Therefore, PowerLink tyres are optimized for rear wheel use, by minimizing the rolling resistance.

ISM 4D

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 reducing aerodynamic drag

Fore

Fore

Stiffer and stronger
Instead of being drilled, the lower rim bridge is pushed up on the inside, then threaded to enable the spoke nipples to be directly screwed in it, leaving the upper rim bridge intact.

SUP

SUP

Stronger and smoother joint
Soudé Usiné Process. After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish.

Maxtal

Maxtal

Light and strong
Exclusive to Mavic, this specific aluminum alloy offers a higher strength to weight ratio than conventional 6106 alloy.

QRM+

QRM+

Qualité de Roulements Mavic +
Our most demanding level. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system.

Isopulse

Isopulse

Optimum energy transfer
The spokes are laced radially on the drive side and crossed 2 on the non drive side to maximise drive side dish, thus providing a better spoke tension balance between left and right flanges.
