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.
New for 2016 is the 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”
