The disc-specific version of the famous Ksyrium Elite: light, strong and versatile and now with tubeless compatibility.
Just like the original Ksyrium Elite, this versatile wheel system produces a lightweight, dynamic ride quality that benefits from ISM 4D rim technology and is now enhanced by the Road UST Technology. Road UST makes the use of tubeless ease and safe, bringing the rolling resistance to its minimum (-15% at equal tyre pressure) and improving ride quality and grip. This version in a disc-brake build requires some specific engineering to address the different forces involved. ISM stands for Inter Spoke Milling. This unique process trims the thickness of the rim wall between the spokes to create a rim that’s lighter but still very durable. To reinforce the front wheel for disc brakes, we increased the spoke count to 24. The hub is engineered with a 12mm thru-axle, and can be converted to 15mm thru-axle or quick release. The rear wheel uses 24 straight-pull spokes laced to the lightweight, fast engagement Instant Drive 360 hub mechanism. Delivered in 12x142, it can be also converted to regular quick release.

Sustainable efficiency durability
Fore-drilled rim secures the spoke rim interface.
Instant Drive 360 freewheel system delivers low friction with fast engagement.
Smartly adapted to the constraints of disc brakes
24 spokes front and rear for perfect brake torque distribution.
UST - Universal Standard for Tubeless
Universal Standard for Tubeless. Ready to ride tubeless system. The UST concept improves traction, control and comfort whilst reducing inertia and flats.
Qualité de Roulements Mavic Auto
Mavic latest innovation. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance. Their preload is automatically adjusted to guarantee a perfect spin with no play on the long run.
QRM+ - Qualité de Roulements Mavic +
Our most demanding level. Those cartridge bearings are of course double sealed with C3 internal clearance, and toped with a micro-adjustability system.
- Tight tolerances for high rolling efficiency.
- Quick adjustment according to performance goals: precision "free" adjustment for maximum fluidity, or perfect high precision setting for all-weather rides.
ISM 4D - 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.
- 15% lighter rim, the lowest inertia for instant acceleration, better handling and faster climbing.
- Variable rim thickness optimizes constraints management for more reliability.
- Smoother rim profile offers better air flow which reduces drag for higher speed.
Instant Drive 360
The new Instant Drive 360 freewheel system is super light and fast to engage with only 9°. A large contactless rubber seal provides low friction, while a wide array of end caps makes it super versatile.
- Oversize aluminum axle and hardened alloy freewheel driver body saves 40g.
- 40 teeth dual ratchet system provides fast 9° engagement.
- Radial seal provides low friction for higher speed and perfect waterproofness.
- Comprehensive end cap adapters makes it compatible with any type of retention system and driver body (QR, 12x142, HG, ED…).
Light and strong
Exclusive to Mavic, this specific aluminum alloy offers a higher strength to weight ratio than conventional 6106 alloy.
- 30% more resistant rims.
- Lighter rims.
Stiffer and stronger
Instead of being drilled, the lower rim bridge is pushed up on the inside, then threaded to enable the spoke nipples to be directly screwed in it, leaving the upper rim bridge intact.
- Rim is 4 times more resistant to fatigue stress.
- 20% increase in the rim rigidity to maximize power transfer.
Stronger and smoother joint
Soudé Usiné Process. After bending, the rim joint is arc welded. The welded seam is then milled for a smooth finish.
- Extremely strong rim joint.
- Eliminates shuddering when braking.
- Superior wheel balance.
Optimum energy transfer
The spokes are laced radially on the drive side and crossed 2 on the non drive side to maximise drive side dish, thus providing a better spoke tension balance between left and right flanges.
- Higher stiffness under heavy loads for crystal clear energy transmission.
- Better wheel stability for fewer maintenance.
