| Merchant: Nashbar Mavic Ksyrium Pro Disc Allroad Clincher + Yksion Elite Road Wheelset. Breaking the boundaries of traditional road riding is what the Mavic Ksyrium Pro Disc Allroad wheelset is all about. More and more riders seeking fresh challenges and an escape from traffic are leaving paved roads and heading out onto dirt and gravel roads. To meet this need, Mavic has created a dedicated Wheel-Tire System (WTS) that combines comfort and reliability with stiffness and responsiveness. The Ksyrium Pro Disc Allroad wheels are equally at home on smooth paved roads as they are on dirt and weigh in at just 1620 grams/pair. The wheels feature Mavic's new ISM-4D technology (Inter Spoke Milling 4 Dimensions) that removes material from the rim where it's not needed but keeps it around the spokes where the tension is applied. This keeps the rim weight at an impressive 430g, despite the generous 19mm internal width. The wide rim is the secret to the wheel's versatility, particularly when paired with the included Yksion Elite Guard tires. Their 700x28 size are ideal if you're going to be riding poorly maintained paved roads or shorter and smoother gravel sections. The tires feature a bead-to-bead nylon breaker that reinforces its 120TPI casing for extra puncture and side cut resistance. Its well-balanced rubber compound and specific tread pattern will also keep you safe and efficient in all weather conditions. The Ksyrium Pro Disc Allroad is a disc-specific wheelset and, as such, features spoke dimensions, spoke count (24 front and rear) and lacing patterns that are adapted specifically to distribute the brake torque efficiently and evenly. The hubs are set up for 6-bolt disc rotors and roll super-smooth courtesy of Mavic's renowned sealed cartridge bearings. The front hub features adapters to make it compatible with quick release, 12mm thru-axle and 15mm thru-axle standards while the rear wheel is set up for 135mm quick release.
