Mavic Ksyrium Elite S wheelsets - clincher

5/5 (2 Reviews)
MSRP : $799.90

Product Description

Mavic's popular mid-priced Ksyrium Elite is better than ever. This new design has been updated with an even lighter rim construction and integrated tire technology for outstanding performance that won't leave you too light in the wallet. By integrating a specific tire to each wheel Mavic can better control how the stresses from the tire affect the rim and wheel and thus how the wheel performs overall. As an added plus the integration provides a consistent graphical approach to your tires and wheels.

Strengths:    innovative construction, durability, comfortable ride

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
This wheelset is reviewed as bullet proof and I was looking for something that would hold up to my 260 lbs and last. After over a year and 8000+ miles, there have been no truing issues while riding on bumpy roads, over small branches and teeth jarring potholes. They are light and spin well. The 25mm rear tire that came with the wheelset lasted approximately one year. Front and rear were upgraded to conti 4000S II's which gave me a slightly better rolling resistance. Foldable tires come off and go on with little to no effort because the rims are wider than its predecessors. The set is cleaned regularly and there has been no rust issues.

Bottom Line:   
These wheels are simply amazing. First, okay, I'll admit, they are a little expensive - but you get what you pay for. I have had these wheels for a year and put 10,000 miles on them, on bumpy roads and can say they perform well. They are light, accelerate well, and look cool too. But the best thing is that with Mavic you get wheels that can take extreme abuse without worrying about breaking them or even truing them. Also, the finish is much better than the off brands. With the wheels that are made by off brand companies, you get a wheel at a lower price and at the same weight that tends to chip around the rim, get scuffed and will warp within a year or less. So save yourself the money and frustration and get a set of Mavics.
