Description of Mavic Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL UST WTS Wheelset with Yksion Pro UST Folding Tires
The result of several years of research and development is one of the lightest of all clincher rims made of carbon. In this way, you can playfully and quickly climb up any alpine pass and then descend safely and quickly back down into the valley. Thanks to exclusive FEM software, Mavic was able to determine the optimal fiber, synthetic resin and fiber lay-up to find the sweet spot between light weight and strength, despite a wider rim for more air volume and better ride quality. Its rounded, flowing profile makes it one of the most aerodynamic rims, ideal for fast descents. The groundbreaking iTgMAX technology ensures powerful braking performance. The clincher rim is produced in a unique manufacturing process with a continuous carbon fiber layer as the top layer. The synthetic resin is subjected to an exclusive heat treatment and subsequently has the highest heat resistance of all clincher rims made of carbon on the market. In addition, the new laser treatment of the brake flanks leads to unbeatable braking effect. At the front 20 and at the rear 24 butted aero spokes guarantee high stiffness, low weight and long service life.
The Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL UST also uses Mavic’s new generation of freewheels called Instant Drive 360 – resulting in a perfect hub: low weight, minimal friction, fast traction, high axle stiffness and enormous durability. And if maintenance or conversion to a different axle standard should be necessary, this is even easier than ever without tools.
The new Yksion Pro UST Tubeless tires reduce rolling resistance even further – and at the same time increase grip, driving comfort and puncture protection with a further reduction in system weight. In short: the Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL UST with clincher rims made of carbon raises the Ksyrium qualities to a whole new level – thanks to the optimal combination of lightweight, durability and top driving characteristics.Technologies:
Inside the Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL UST the new freewheel-generation named Instant Drive 360 will be used – it makes a perfect hub: low weight, minimized friction, quick force-closure, high axle-stiffness and enormously long lifetime. And if maintenance should be necessary, or altering the axle-standard, it is tool-free and easier than ever before.
Isopulse – The spokes are laced radially on the drive side and crossed 2 on the non drive side to maximize drive side dish, thus providing a better spoke tension balance between left and right flanges. Further advantages: higher stiffness under heavy loads for crystal clear energy transmission and better wheel stability for fewer maintenance.
QRM+ (Qualité Roulements Mavic Plus) – Mavic Quality Bearings Plus. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system.
QRM Auto (Qualité de Roulements Mavic Auto) – Mavic’s latest innovation. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance. Their preload is automatically adjusted to guarantee a perfect spin with no play on the long run
11 Storm Exclusive tire rubber compound that offers the best blend of rolling efficiency and grip.
iTgMAX-technology provides strong brake-performance. iTgMAX technology consists in laying up several types of high technology resins, then fixing them using a proprietary heat treatment process to achieve the highest possible resistance to braking heat. The result is consistent and efficient braking, whatever the climate conditions.
Clean with a dry cloth or soap and water. Do not use pressurized water.
