Mavic Ksyrium Elite WTS Wheelset – Clincher

Rim Material: Maxtal aluminum
Wheel Size: 700 c
Tire Type: clincher

The Mavic Ksyrium line has one of the stellar reputations within the wheel industry for producing bombproof and multi-faceted wheelsets that may tackle almost any road riding or racing situation. The Mavic Ksyrium Elite WTS Clincher Wheelset has improved in this legacy with a redesign to better accommodate the shifting trend towards wider road tires Even as still maintaining its legendary versatility and durability. The big news for this Ksyrium is a widened internal rim width, up to 17mm from the 15mm of previous Ksyriums ??? which would possibly sound tiny, but it is a huge difference while you move from a 23mm to a 25mm tire. For both 23mm and 25mm tires, the wider rim makes for less of a bulging “light bulb effect” than a narrower rim with the similar size tire, for the reason that tire beads are ready to take a seat at a much broader stance on the rim. Combining less sidewall bulge with more air volume as a result of that wider stance translates to more stability when cornering and a reduced chance of pinch flats getting in the best way of your ride time than wheels with narrower rims. Even as the trend towards the use of 25mm tires opens up doors for every type of math puns related to composite rims and numbers, it also serves an actual purpose to positively have an effect on ride quality. The wider tire reduces rolling resistance by up to 13% when in comparison to a 23mm tire on the same tire pressure ??? so more power gets allocated to forward speed as a substitute of fighting friction with the pavement. Wider tires also give riders a comfier ride by running a lower tire pressure. At 20psi lower, a 25mm tire could have the similar rolling resistance and a a lot more forgiving road feel than a 23mm tire. With this in mind, Mavic pairs 25mm tires with every Ksyrium Elite wheelset. In conjunction with the wider rim, Mavic utilizes its Inter Spoke Milling 4 Dimensions (ISM 4D) process to create the classic Ksyrium rim shape, which is milled between every spoke. This process serves to cut back rim weight and lower the rotating mass of the wheel for better …
