The stealth outlook and superior braking performance of Exalith now available on the legendary Ksyrium Pro
The Ksyrium Pro Exalith takes most of the leading features from the Ksyrium Pro SL and adds our exclusive Exalith rim surface treatment. This means incredible versatility and all-round ability combined with stunning looks and amazing braking performance.
Exalith is a special chemical treatment that penetrates deep within the aluminum alloy, offering multiple benefits:
- The rim is reinforced, notably at the brake track, so there’s very low wear over time.
- The braking power is greatly improved, reducing stopping distances by 20% over traditional aluminum rims, whether dry or wet. Specific Exalith brake pads need to be used and are delivered with the wheels. These ensure maximum braking power, protect the rim from scratches and ensure quiet braking and limited wear.
- The rim gets a stunning all black finish, not only on the profile but also on the brake track which will keep its matt black finish for thousands of kilometers
Lighter, stronger, stiffer
Ksyrium Pro Exalith uses Fore drilling to keep the rim light and strong, Zicral spokes that are stiffer and lighter than their traditional steel counterparts, and Isopulse lacing for improved stability and stiffness under high loads.
ISM3D technology (Inter Spoke Milling 3 Dimensional) removes even more weight and the wheel now weighs in at an impressive 370g. It does this by removing any excess material from the lower bridge and sidewalls of the rim, making sure the rim is super light but stays strong.
Matching Yksion Pro tyres
Total wheel weight is 1395g and comes equipped with our Yksion Pro tyres that offer a supple 127 TPI casing, Kevlar beads and a well-balanced rubber compound. This creates the best blend of grip and rolling resistance and a weight of only 190g in 23mm and 205g in 25mm.
The front wheel comes with the Griplink version, which offers a specific tread pattern to evacuate water quickly when cornering to increase confidence and speed in difficult conditions. It also offers very strong Kevlar puncture protection for added safety.
The rear wheel comes with the Powerlink version, which sports a more supple nylon puncture protection instead of Kevlar to lower rolling resistance. To reduce rolling resistance and increase speed even further, the tread pattern is optimized to reduce the pressure on the ground, while improving water evacuation from the center to increase traction and efficiency in wet conditions.
Ksyrium Pro Exalith is available with 23mm and 25mm tyres. Yksion Pro tyres are also available in 28mm for even more comfort.

High braking performance
The Mavic exclusive Exalith 2 technology for aluminum rims has been refined to provide a very high level of durability and braking performance in all weather conditions.
Inter Spoke Milling 3 Dimensions
An exclusive Mavic patented concept, ISM 3D pushes the envelope of ISM one step further by not only machining the lower bridge of the rim between each spoke hole, but also its sidewalls.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Light, stiff and strong
A specific aluminum alloy that provides spokes with higher stiffness-to-weight ratio while being stronger.
Stronger and smoother joint
Soudé Usiné Process. After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish.
