The Ksyrium Elite road wheel has been a benchmark for reliability, light weight and versatility for more than a decade. This updated version makes it easier than ever to experience the benefits of riding tubeless. Integrated with our Yksion Pro UST Tubeless tires, the system makes installation, removal and maintenance simple and hassle-free. Eliminating the tube reduces friction in the system, which means less rolling resistance and higher speeds. You can also lower your tire pressure, which gives you a smoother, more comfortable ride plus added control on rough roads. You’ll also enjoy a reduced risk of punctures, so you can ride with confidence and push yourself farther. The rims are engineered with our patented Fore Drilling to form a stronger connection between the spokes and the rim. Isopulse lacing improves stability and boosts lateral stiffness while sprinting or climbing. Our exclusive patented ISM 4D process strategically removes excess material from the rim while maintaining it around the spokes, where tension is applied. The wheel is available in three colour options: grey on black; black with red highlights; and black with yellow highlights.

Lightweight and durable, Ksyrium delivers everyday performance no matter the weather. Wider lightweight rims for a smooth ride quality.

Excellent Wheelset Upgrade

I've never upgraded my wheelset before so wasn't sure what to expect but so far I've been really impressed with the Mavic Kysirium Elites. They're around 400g lighter than my previous wheels (Vision Team 30) and I can really tell the difference when accelerating and out of the saddle up the hills. I've only done 3 rides so far but I've been really impressed. The tubeless tyres also seem to be a little more forgiving (due to only needing 80psi rather than my usual 100psi) and roll really smoothly. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase so far and can't wait to get out on more rides.

Ksyrium UST Wheelset

Usual Mavic quality. I have opted to stay with tubes so fitted some Conti Gatorskins and they went on OK if a little tighter than with the older Ksyriums (non UST). Few pings on first ride, but they are still true and feel good on the road. All good so far.

Ksyrium ust

Just taken delivery of wheel, incidentally Tredz used DX to transport, very efficient, no damage to box. Wheel as yet untried but looks like a quality item. Comes with Mavic tyre fitted and all you need to run tubeless, valve core removal tool, tyre levers, bottle of sealant, injector and finally quick release. The tyre appears ‘grippy’ to the touch so looks promising. However Mavic do make a big point (see YouTube) of how easy it is to fit the tyre by hand, unlike most other tubeless tyres. Sadly this didn't match up, as you have to use levers fitting as well as removing the tyre and it’s a very tight fit. I usually have no trouble fitting tubed tyres by hand. However, they easily inflate using an ordinary track pump without needing a special pump with an 'air blast'. Without sealant pressure drops dramatically within 24hrs. I don’t want to put the sealant in until nearer the time I’m ready to use the wheel, so I’m assuming the sealant will sort this out. I will try and update performance when used.

Road Bike Wheel Guide

 
 

Road Bike Wheels

Whether you are upgrading or replacing, a new set of wheels is the best way to improve the performance of your road bike. Lighter wheels will enable you to accelerate quicker and climb faster, stiffer wheels will improve cornering stability while aero wheels reduce drag, so you can slice through the air faster.

With different types of road bike wheel available, not all road bike wheels will be compatible with your bike. In this road bike wheel guide, we will look at the different wheel options to help you choose the perfect new 700c wheelset for your bike.


Types of wheel

Traditional rim brake wheels

Wheels that are designed for rim brake are the traditional road bike wheels. These wheels are easily identified by the flat braking surface on the edge of the rim. This is usually a different colour and/or texture to the rest of the rim. Traditional rim brake wheels have a 100mm wide front hub and a 130mm wide rear hub. These wheels are all compatible with QR or quick release road bike axle skewers.

Disc brake wheels

Disc brake wheels don’t need a braking track, so the rim has a continuous profile. Instead disc brake wheels have special hubs that the discs are mounted on. There are two types of mounting for disc rotors: six bolt wheel hubs have, as the name suggests, six holes that the disc bolts into, centre lock hubs have a ridged spindle that the disc slots into. While the front hub is the same width on both disc and rim brake wheels, the rear hub is wider at 135mm or 142mm for thru axle wheels.

Thru axles

While some disc brake wheels use traditional quick release skewers, many disc brake wheels use wider bolt-through (thru) axles. Thru axles improve the stiffness of the bike which is especially important for disc brakes as the braking forces are applied much closer to the axle. Thru axles on road bikes are usually 12mm in diameter with a rear hub width of 142mm. Quick release and thru axles are not compatible with each other, so it is important that you choose the correct type for your bike.


Clincher, tubeless and tubular

Most road bike wheels are clinchers. This means that the tyre grips the inside edge of the rim for a secure attachment when inflated. Traditional clinchers require an inner tube to stay inflated. Tubeless wheels are very similar to traditional clinchers but have an airtight seal over the spoke holes with a valve attached to the rim for inflating the tyre. Tubeless sealant is then added to the tyre to improve the airtight seal as well as automatically repairing punctures. Tubeless wheels can be used with regular inner tubes by simply removing the valve and sealant then fitting an inner tube. Tubular wheels are different and use special tyres that have an inner tube built in. These are the tyres that most pro riders use, but as the tyre is glued to the rim they are not practical for general cycling.

Free hub compatibility

The free hub is the part of the rear wheel that holds the cassette. There are two basic types on road bikes: HG (Hyper Glide) free hubs are the most common and are compatible with both Shimano and SRAM drivetrains, Capagnolo free hubs are only compatible with Campagnolo drivetrains. There are a couple of exceptions to this rule however: some gravel bikes, with one-by drivetrains, use mountain bike style XD cassettes, and some top-of-the range groupsets may also be different.

The free hub is the part of the rear wheel that holds the cassette.

Lightweight vs durability

Lightweight wheels are the best for climbing, but are still built strong enough for fast descending. Aero wheels, with deep section rims are a little heavier but slice through the air more efficiently so are best for rides that don’t have too many climbs. If you ride on rough surfaces then a more durable, endurance or cyclocross wheelset will give you a more confident feel and will last longer.

Axles, rim tape and tubeless sealant

When you choose your new wheels, don't forget the extras you might need to go with them. If everything's compatible, you can of course re-use your existing QR skewers or bolt-through axles, but you might want to upgrade at the same time. Not all wheels come with rim tape to line the wheels with, so you might need to buy this as well. If you are upgrading to tubeless wheels, then you will need to buy tubeless sealant along with tubeless compatible tyres. Most tubeless wheels are supplied with valves and are ready taped.
