For over a decade, Ksyrium Elite has stood for reliability, low weight and versatility
and in this latest version we’re using the same high-tech features as the Ksyrium SL
but at an even more attractive price-point.
Improved performance One of the biggest features
is a wider rim shape, which is enlarged by two millimeters. That might not sound much, but
when combined with 25mm tires it increases the air volume by 18%. This extra volume means
you can lower the tire pressure by 20 PSI while maintaining the same rolling resistance as
with a narrower rim and tire.
The result is greatly improved comfort with no compromise on
rolling efficiency to keep you fast on the long haul. And despite the lower tire pressure,
the increased distance between the rim edge and the ground (thanks to the extra air) means
pinch flats are easily avoided.
We’ve also used Mavic’s exclusive and patented Fore Drilling
to create a stronger connection between the spokes and the rim, while our innovative Isopulse
lacing improves stability and lateral stiffness under heavy loads such as sprinting or climbing.
The best technology, where it matters We’ve made sure all of this performance is achieved without
a gain in weight thanks to our exclusive patented ISM4D technology.
This removes material from the rim where it’s not needed but keeps it around the spokes, where the tension is applied.
The result is a wide yet super-light rim at just 405g.
The new Ksyrium Elite will still come fitted with our Yksion Pro tire.
