The famous Ksyrium Elite, enlightened further. True to its precedent of offering the high end technlogies usually reserved for only top of the line models, the Ksyrium Elite S takes another step forward to achieve weight savings matched by only a few wheels. This performance is enhanced even more with new extra light Yksion Pro tyres.

Mavic Ksyrium Elite S Road Wheelset Technology:
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.
The safest grip with great steering control: Dual compound “S ” with added Silica.
Hold the road in any situation: light and supple high density casing.
Reduced risk of flats: strong Nylon anti-puncture breaker.
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 use, by minimizing the rolling resistance.
Superior energy transfer, reduced rolling resistance and safe grip: Dual compound.
Improved drive: light and supple high density casing.
Higher durability and reduced risk of flats: Dual compound and strong Nylon anti-puncture breaker.
ISM - Low inertia Inter Spoke Milling. Lighter rim and equal rigidity is the magic equation to reduce inertia and to free extra power for climbing. A Mavic patented exclusive concept (US 6 402 256).
Lighter: easier and faster climbing
Less inertia: instant and effortless acceleration
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.
Greater efficiency due to better transmission of efforts on the entire wheel.
Lightweight and strong hub design.
QRM - Qualité de Roulements Mavic Our most demanding level. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealled with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system.
Tight tolerances for high rolling efficiency.
Quick adjustment according to performance goals: precision "free" adjustment for maximum fluidity, or perfect high precision setting for all-weather rides.
Fore - Stiffer and stronger Instead of being drilled, the lower rim bridge is pushed on the inside, then threaded to enable the spoke nipples to be directly screwed in it, leaving the upper rim bridge intact.
Rim is 4 times more resistant to fatigue stress
20% increase in the rim rigidity to maximize power transfer
Isopulse - 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.
Higher stiffness under heavy loads for crystal clear energy transmission.
Better wheel stability for fewer maintenance.
UB Control - Usiné Brut Control The braking surfaces are precisely CNC machined.
Improves braking friction
Eliminate shuddering when braking
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.
Extremely strong rim joint.
Eliminates shuddering when braking.
Superior wheel balance.
Maxtal - Light and strong Exclusive to Mavic, this specific aluminum alloy offers a higher weight to strength ratio than conventional 6106 alloy.
30% more resistant rims
