“Amazing ride quality.” That’s how riders often describe their experience with Ksyrium wheels. Now we’ve made this versatile wheel system even better by improving the component that matters most: the rim. The box section rim extrusion and low spoke count produces a smooth and comfortable ride, and our patented ISM (Inter Spoke Milling) technology is used to further reduce weight. Lighter weight means lower inertia, and that leads to easier climbing and faster acceleration. The bladed spokes are radially laced on the front wheel for improved lateral stiffness. On the rear, we use our exclusive Isopulse lacing pattern (radial on the drive side, crossed two on the non-drive side) to balance the spoke tension. A wider drive side bracing angle creates higher lateral stiffness under heavy loads such as climbing or sprinting. The rims are paired with our proven QRM bearings and axle system, which minimizes friction and ensures high durability with no service needed. The wheels are fitted with 25mm Yksion Elite tires, which offer the best blend of low rolling resistance and secure cornering grip in dry or wet conditions. With supple 120 TPI casings, front and rear specific tread patterns, and a weight of only 215g, they complement Ksyrium’s abilities to accelerate and climb.

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.

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.

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.

H2

H2

Hammer Hardening
Local strengthening of the rim in the area where the spokes exert the greatest stress.

UB Control

UB Control

Usiné Brut Control
The braking surfaces are precisely CNC machined.

ISM

ISM

Inter Spoke Milling
An exclusive Mavic patented concept, ISM involves the machining of the lower bridge of the rim between each spoke hole to create a light and rigid rim without reducing the durability of the rim.

QRM
