    This wheelset features some of the most high end Mavic technologies, so far reserved to top of the line models: Fore drilling, ISM, Isopulse... All this to make sure you can enjoy the most responsive rides. New consistant Ksyrium family graphic approach. Black or Silver version.

    Key Benefits

    Responsive wheels
    Less inertia: ISM Optimized energy transfer: Isopulse lacing and asymetrical rim

    Lighter wheels are faster wheels
    A light rim with the same stiffness: ISM machining Light free-wheel system: FTS-L

    Rely on the proven Mavic quality
    Rim resistance: Maxtal, SUP welding, Fore drilling High quality adjustable cartridge bearings: QRM+


    After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish. A welded and milled rim joint is extremely strong, eliminates shuddering when braking, and offers superior wheel balance.

    This spoke lacing design consist in lacing the spokes radially on the drive side and crossed 2 on the non drive side. This lacing pattern brings better wheel stability and a crystal clear transmission of energy thanks to a better spoke tension balance between left and right flanges.

    UB Control
    The braking surfaces are milled to improve braking friction and eliminate shuddering.

    Exclusive to Mavic. An aluminum alloy that is 30 percent more resistant than a 6106 alloy, for lighter and stronger rims.

    Only one of the 2 rim wall is "drilled" : - the rim is 4 times more resistant to fatigue stress - 20% increase in the rim rigidity to transfer all of your energy to the ground

    Mavic's most demanding level. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealled with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system, allowing you to quickly adjust your wheels according to performance goals: precision "free" adjustment for maximum fluidity, or perfect high precision setting for all-weather rides.

    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 percent aluminum hub body: - the entire hub is extremely lightweight and strong - greater efficiency due to better transmission of efforts on the entire wheel

    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).
