| Brand: Mavic Inc.
| Merchant: Nashbar Mavic Ksyrium Elite + Yksion Pro Tire Road Wheelset. The Mavic Ksyrium Elite road wheelset has been completely re-invented and features wider, lighter rims for improved ride quality. The rims utilize Mavic's patented Inter Spoke Milling 4 Dimensions (ISM 4D) technology that reduces weight and inertia without compromising durability. This equates to quicker accelerations, better handling, and with the smooth profile you'll enjoy reduced aerodynamic drag. The rims are milled from Mavic's renowned Maxtal alloy that feature an SUP arc-welded seam for superb stiffness to weight ratio plus a significant reduction in brake chatter. The braking surface features Mavic's CNC-machined, UB technology for optimal stopping power. There are also no spoke holes in the tire well, making the rim even stiffer and eliminating the need for the extra grams of rim tape. Bladed, straight pull, steel spokes are supremely reliable and sport radial lacing for the front wheel and Mavic's Isopulse pattern on the rear wheel. Both hubs roll super-smooth on Mavic's renowned sealed cartridge bearings. Not only that, Mavic has provided an incredible pair of tires, too, to complete the package. Their Yksion Pro GripLink front tire ensures excellent cornering grip, low rolling resistance, and long life while the Yksion Pro PowerLink rear tire delivers speed and responsiveness. Both tires are 700x25c in size, feature a puncture resistant belt, and have a 127 TPI casing for optimal suppleness and road feel.
