Ksyrium Pro SL wheels take some of Mavic’s most weight-saving technologies and roll them all into one set of wheels. Their ISM 4D process aggressively removes Maxtal alloy material from the parts of the rim that undergo the least amount of stress, leaving material where the rim needs it most—at the spokes. The result is a rim with the same strength and stiffness, but drastically reduced weight. It also smooths the aerodynamic profile of the rim, helping you slip through the air relatively unnoticed. Mavic’s lightweight and aerodynamic bladed Zicral aluminum spokes keep the rotating mass even lower while offering a high strength-to-weight ratio. The stiffness and toughness factors are further increased both by the Fore integrated spoke nipples which screw directly into the rim, and by Mavic’s Isopulse lacing pattern that helps to even the spoke tension balance side-to-side while sending pedaling torque through the hub to the non-drive side, allowing rapid acceleration and greater rear wheel reliability. Incredibly smooth QRM+ bearings keep you rolling, fast and efficient, and Mavic included Yksion Pro tires that command the road with front- and rear-specific designs designed according to the specific qualities these tires individually require. Together the Ksyrium Pro SL wheels and Yksion Pro tires make a wheel-tire system that will carry you many miles with new-found speed, comfort, and control.
