Mavic’s Ksyrium Pro Exalith SL pushes the limits of aluminum-rimmed wheel design with the technological advantages you expect from the legendary wheel-maker. The exceptionally-strong Maxtal alloy is streamlined into lightweight, durable rims by the ISM 4D process, by which excess material is machined away from where it's not needed, resulting in rims that maintain strength and durability while shedding weight. Their Tracomp spokes deliver significant advantages over traditional wheel designs by employing spokes that work both in traction and compression. Under heavy loads, instead of losing their tension, Tracomp spokes enter into compression and continue to support the wheel with a high degree of lateral stiffness, all while lowering overall wheel weight and rotating mass, which means stiffer, lighter, more efficient wheels. Ksyrium Pro Exalith SL wheels come equipped with Mavic’s Yksion Pro tires, featuring front- and rear-specific designs constructed according to the differing demands you place on each. These wheels also benefit from an Exalith 2 rim finish, which delivers enhanced braking performance while extending the longevity of the braking surfaces, as well as the appearance of the rim. Experience the result of more than 100 years of expertise on Mavic’s Ksyrium Pro Exalith wheels.
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 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 tire, whether a clincher or a tubular, must enhance the front wheel’s ability to grip the road and control the bike. Therefore, GripLink tires are optimized for front use by offering superior cornering grip and extra puncture protection.
Low rolling resistance:
A rear tire, whether a clincher or a tubular, must enhance the wheel’s ability to transfer power and generate speed. Therefore, PowerLink tires are optimized for rear wheel use by minimizing rolling resistance.
Light and stiff in both traction and compression:
Extremely light Tracomp carbon fiber spokes work in traction and compression to provide a very high stiffness level in any circumstances.
Force Transfer System Light:
Reinforcement of a key transmission component: the contact area between the pawl and the hub body is reinforced by two stainless steel inserts, which allows the use of a 100% aluminum hub body.
Stiffer and stronger:
Instead of being drilled for spoke nipples, the lower rim bridge is pushed up on the inside and threaded to make it possible to directly screw the nipples into the lower rim bridge, eliminating the need to drill the upper rim bridge. Besides improving the nipple-rim interface, this design is ideally suited to tubeless tire setups and helps maintain rim integrity.
Qualité de Roulements Mavic Super Light:
The superlight bearings are designed according to Mavic’s strict QRM specifications. The matching axles are machined within extremely narrow tolerances, then assembled and adjusted one-by-one with a very high level of precision.
Lightweight, stiff, and strong:
Zicral spokes are made of a specific aluminum alloy to achieve a higher stiffness-to-weight ratio while maintaining high strength.
Lightweight and strong:
Exclusive to Mavic, this specific aluminum alloy offers a higher strength-to-weight ratio than conventional 6106 alloy, allowing greater latitude in design while maintaining high strength and durability standards.
Soudé Usiné Process:
After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish, resulting in a stronger, smoother, more reliable rim joint.
