| Merchant: Nashbar Mavic Ksyrium Pro Exalith SL + Yksion Pro Tire Road Wheelset. The Mavic Ksyrium Pro Exalith SL road wheelset provides race-worthy responsiveness and lightweight performance weighing in at just 1,355 grams for the pair. 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 sports Mavic's Exalith 2 treatment that penetrates into the alloy to improve braking performance (18% shorter distance in wet conditions) plus delay rim wear for a longer life for your wheels. The rims also feature 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. 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. Double butted, bladed, Zicral aluminum alloy spokes with integrated nipples enhance the front wheel's aero slipperiness, are easy to service, and are laced to a sleek hub that utilizes a carbon fiber body to reduce weight. The Zicral spokes are also utilized on the rear wheel's drive side while the non-drive side spokes are Tracomp carbon fiber. Lighter than aluminum, these hollow, carbon fiber spokes are also extraordinarily stiff to minimize wheel deflection under load and maximize the transformation of your watts into speed. 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.
