| Merchant: Nashbar Mavic Ksyrium + Yksion Elite Road Rear Wheel - 2016. The Mavic Ksyrium rear wheel is a light, sturdy legend and it's been updated with a wider, lighter rim for improved performance. And adding to the value, Mavic has included their 700x25 Yksion Elite tire so the wheel is ready to roll right out of the box. While a great wheel for a great price, Mavic didn't skimp on the technology that trickles down from their more expensive wheels. Stainless steel, bladed spokes are strong fast while the S6000 aluminum rim has Mavic's Hammer Hardening technology at the spoke holes where strength matters most. Inter Spoke Milling lightens the rim and improves acceleration while the UB Control braking surface enhances the wheel's braking performance. The Ksyrium sports Mavic's renowned aluminum hub and sealed cartridge bearings for reliable, smooth-rolling performance. Furthermore, the wheel's 20 spokes feature Mavic's Isopulse lacing pattern for optimal stiffness as well as better spoke tension balance. And for added style, this version of the Ksyrium rear wheel features red highlights on the rim and hub for a bit more flash then the all black model. To complete the package, Mavic has provided their 700x25 Yksion Elite tire that sports a single compound, a folding bead, a 120 TPI casing for a supple ride, and a weight of just 215 grams.
