Mavic Ksyrium Pro Clincher Wheelset 2017
The Ksyrium Pro uses the same technology as the Ksyrium Pro SL, which has set new standards for modern wheel building. This wheel is equally at ease on fast rolling terrain or mountain courses, and for a couple of hours or an all-day adventure. The combination of low weight, stiffness, durability and superb ride quality is the trademark of Mavic Ksyrium wheelsets and this wheelset has evolved to be even better for 2016. Ksyrium wheelsets are the benchmark that all other wheel manufacturers pitch themselves against.
This wheelset has the new rim shape, which is enlarged by two millimeters. When combined with 25mm tyres it increases the air volume by 18%. This extra volume means you can lower the tyre pressure by 20 PSI while maintaining the same rolling resistance as with a narrower rim and tyre. The result is greatly improved comfort with no compromise on rolling efficiency to keep you fast on the long haul. And despite the lower tyre pressure, the increased distance between the rim edge and the ground (thanks to the extra air) means pinch flats are easily avoided.
Mavic Ksyrium Pro Clincher Wheelset 2017 was made possible thanks to Mavics’ constant technological improvements and design. Below are some of the reasons how Mavic were able to create an immensley stiff, strong and lightweight yet comfortable wheelset.
- Zicral alloy spokes are stiffer, stronger and lighter than traditional stainless steel spokes.
- Isopulse lacing pattern (radial lacing on the drive side) allows a more balanced spoke tension, giving a more stable and stiffer wheel, especially for heavy loads.
- Fore drilling creates the strongest possible connection between rim and spokes, with no holes in the upper bridge of the rim to increase stiffness by about 20%, and no rim tape needed (another 40g saved).
- New ISM4D rim means each part of the rim is precisely machined using just the right amount of material needed to provide stiffness and strength, while maintaining weight at just 400g. For a total wheel weight of only 1475g.
