Mavic’s Ksyrium Pro is packed with the technological advantages you expect from the legendary wheel-maker. The exceptionally strong Maxtal alloy is streamlined into a lightweight, yet strong rim by the ISM 4D process, which machines away excess rim material where it's not needed. Mavic’s Zicral spokes provide high tension and low rotating mass, laced radially up front with stability-maximizing Isopulse lacing in the rear. These spokes are anchored securely via aluminum Fore nipples that ingeniously thread directly into the rim bridge to keep your wheels true, stiff, and lightweight. Ksyrium Pro wheels come equipped with Mavic’s Yksion Pro tires, featuring front- and rear-specific designs constructed according to the differing demands you place on each. Experience the result of more than 100 years of expertise on Mavic’s Ksyrium Pro Exalith wheels.
Inter Spoke Milling—Four Dimensions:
An exclusive Mavic patented concept, ISM 4D significantly reduces weight and inertia without compromising durability. Quicker acceleration, better handling, and greater strength: the right mix to make the most of any ride. The smooth profile also helps reduce aerodynamic drag.
Grip and control:
A front tire, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to hold the ground and control the bike. Therefore, GripLink tires are optimized for front use by offering a superior grip and extra puncture protection.
Low rolling resistance:
A rear tire, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to transfer power and generate speed. Therefore, PowerLink tires are optimized for rear wheel use by minimizing the rolling resistance.
Force Transfer System Light:
Reinforcement of a key transmission component: the contact area between the pawl and the hub body is reinforced by two stainless steel inserts, which allows the use of a 100% aluminum hub body.
Stiffer and stronger:
Instead of being drilled for spoke nipples, the lower rim bridge is pushed up on the inside and threaded to make it possible to directly screw the nipples into the lower rim bridge, eliminating the need to drill the upper rim bridge. Besides improving the nipple-rim interface, this design is ideally suited to tubeless tire setups and helps maintain rim integrity.
Optimum energy transfer:
The spokes are laced radially on the drive side and 2-cross on the non-drive-side to maximize drive-side dish, providing a better spoke tension balance between left and right flanges.
Qualité de Roulements Mavic + :
QRM+ is Mavic’s most demanding level of hub and bearing precision. It uses only double-sealed cartridge bearings with C3 internal clearances and features a system for making micro-adjustments to bearing preload.
Lightweight, stiff, and strong:
Zicral spokes are made of a specific aluminum alloy to achieve a higher stiffness-to-weight ratio while maintaining high strength.
Lightweight and strong:
Exclusive to Mavic, this specific aluminum alloy offers a higher strength-to-weight ratio than conventional 6106 alloy, allowing greater latitude in design while maintaining high strength and durability standards.
Soudé Usiné Process:
After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish, resulting in a stronger, smoother, more reliable rim joint.
Usiné Brut Control:
The rim’s braking surfaces are precisely CNC machined for smooth, predictable braking and less brake chatter.
