With Mavic’s immense knowledge within the industry of creating impressively performance focused mountain bike disc wheels, a wide range of this technology has been brought across and now, Mavic are ready to release their Ksyrium Pro UST Disc Centre Lock Wheelset 2018. With a rim depth of just 22mm and an overall weight of 1620g, these wheels are the perfect addition to your disc equipped road bike, especially when you yearn for greater control in every situation.
Everything from Mavic’s UST Tubeless Ready design, which increases traction and control, and reduces weight when converted to tubeless, to ‘Maxtal’, which is evident in a wide range of Mavic’s higher end wheelsets, reduces the overall weight of aluminium rims by a considerable amount, but also allows for a higher strength to weight ratio than conventional 6106 alloy.
SUP (Soudé Usiné Process) is Mavic’s renowned joining process, which actually joins the rim by arc welding, then mills it for a smoother finish. This ensures there are no rough areas on the braking surface, and no weak edges to create any kind of inconsistency in any area of the rim.
The science behind a set of disc brake wheels are quite staggering, and it’s clear that Mavic have done their research. They state that because braking torque is distributed through the hub, spokes and lower rim before it reaches the ground, the braking load is higher on the front wheel. Thus, the front wheel needs to be built with more spokes; 24 instead of 18 or 20. This adds a minimal amount of weight, but it’s worth it for the durability and rigidity these wheels continuously provide.
Of course, the rim can be as strong as diamonds, but what about the hub? Building the wheel from the hub out, Mavic’s Instant Drive 360 technology system is super light and fast to engage with only 9°, whilst a large contactless rubber seal provides low friction.
