For over a decade, the Ksyrium Elite has stood for high reliability, low weight and versatility. With this revised version, the advantages of a tubeless system can be experienced more easily than ever before. In combination with Mavic's Yksion Pro UST tubeless tyres, initial fitting, tyre changing and maintenance are particularly easy. Without a hose, the internal friction is lower, which reduces the rolling resistance even further and thus rolls even faster over any surface. Now the tyre pressure can be reduced even further for smooth comfort and control on rough roads - without increasing the risk of puncture. The breakdown protection is also better in other respects, so you can tackle further tours with 100% confidence. Mavic's patented Fore rim bores create a tighter connection between the spokes and the rim and the Isopulse loughing increases stability and lateral rigidity under high loads such as during sprinting or on steep climbing passages. The patented ISM 4D technology eliminates any excess material from the rim, while leaving the area around the rim bores where the load is highest untouched.
