Completely reinvented, the famous Ksyrium Elite now gets superlight yet wide ISM 4D rims for improved ride quality
For over a decade, Ksyrium Elite has stood for high reliability, light weight and versatility, utilising the same high-tech features from the Ksyrium SL but at an even more attractive price-point. Mavic’s exclusive and patented Fore Drilling creates a strong and durable connection of the spokes to the rim while our innovative Isopulse lacing improves stability and lateral stiffness under heavy loads such as sprinting or climbing.
A complete re-design of the rim. They are now wider, by increasing the internal width by 2mm we give the tyre a larger surface area to improve both comfort and rolling efficiency. The air volume has increased by 18% which delivers the following benefits:
• Lower rolling resistance - For the same tyre pressure the rolling resistance is reduced by 13%
• Greater comfort - While maintaining the same rolling resistance you can lower the tyre pressure by 20psi
• Improved puncture performance - A bigger gap between the road and the edge of the rim reduces the chance of a pinch flat or “snake-bite”
All of this performance is achieved without any weight penalty, thanks to the use of our exclusive patented ISM4D technology. Staying true to the Elite philosophy, to offer the best technology available where it really matters, ISM4D leaves the exact amount of material around the spokes to maximise the balance between durability, strength and weight. The result is a wide yet super-light rim at just 405g.
The finish has also been re-designed and upgraded using a combination of matt and glossy contrasting to compliment the high performance and technology of the wheelset. Available in three colour options depending on your personal preference and to match your bike and equipment - black on black, black with red highlights and black with blue highlights.
The new Ksyrium Elite will still come fitted with our Yksion Pro tyre. The Yksion Pro Griplink is optimised for front wheel use thanks to its sticky compound, water evacuation tread pattern and super strong Kevlar flat protection, it will keep you safe on any road surface and in all weather conditions. The rear wheel comes with the Yksion Pro Powerlink with its specially designed compound, supple nylon reinforced casing and tread pattern to increase rolling efficiency. The result is not only a fast and dependable performing tyre system but one that is also extremely light weight at just 210g in a generous and comfortable 25mm width.

Inter Spoke Milling 4 Dimensions
An exclusive Mavic patented concept, ISM 4D significantly reduces weight and inertia without compromising durability. Quicker accelerations, better handling and more resistance ; the right mix to make the most of any ride. The smooth profile also helps reducing aerodynamic drag
Grip and control
A front tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to hold the ground and control the bike. Therefore, GripLink tyres are optimized for front use, by offering a superior grip and extra puncture protection.
Low rolling resistance
A rear tyre, whether a clincher or a tubular, must fully liberate the wheel’s ability to transfer power and generate speed. Therefore, PowerLink tyres are optimized for rear wheel use, by minimizing the rolling resistance.
Stiffer and stronger
Instead of being drilled, the lower rim bridge is pushed up on the inside, then threaded to enable the spoke nipples to be directly screwed in it, leaving the upper rim bridge intact.
Light and strong
Exclusive to Mavic, this specific aluminum alloy offers a higher strength to weight ratio than conventional 6106 alloy.
Optimum energy transfer
The spokes are laced radially on the drive side and crossed 2 on the non drive side to maximise drive side dish, thus providing a better spoke tension balance between left and right flanges.
Force Transfer System Light
Reinforcement of key transmission components: the contact area between the pawl and the hub body is reinforced by 2 stainless steel inserts, which allows the use of a 100% aluminum hub body.
Qualité de Roulements Mavic +
Our most demanding level. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system.
