Fast and light, the Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheelset blurs the lines between road racing and training, supplying do-all performance, great acceleration and excellent handling.
22mm deep front and 25mm deep rear rims are strengthened where the spokes exert the greatest stress; rear rim utilizes asymmetrical shape to enhance stiffness and durability
Lightweight yet strong proprietary aluminum rims have a drilling method that doesn't penetrate the tube-facing wall, eliminating the need for rim strips and strengthening rim
Both rims feature a milled braking surface to improve friction; rim joints are welded and milled to eliminate shuddering during braking and provide superior wheel balance
Inter Spoke Milling reduces material between spokes, lowering weight and the amount of effort needed to spin the wheels up for superb climbing and acceleration
Rear hub features a lightweight and stiff aluminum hub body with pawls that are backed by stainless-steel inserts for reliable, strong engagement and power transfer
Both hubs boast a microadjustable system that lets you dial in performance; double-sealed cartridge bearings deliver excellent longevity and smooth spinning
18/20 straight-pull, ultra-flat, bladed stainless-steel spokes are laced radially on the front wheel; rear has radial lacing on the drive-side, 2-cross on the non-drive-side
