Aksium is a great choice for everyday road riding. With a smart balance of high-quality materials and durable construction, it shows aspiring road riders the clear performance benefits that a high-quality wheelset can make. This Aksium Disc model includes special features aimed at the unique demands of disc brake road bikes. It uses straight pull spokes for added stiffness and strength. Mavic also increased the spoke count to 24 on both front and rear wheels. With a 17mm internal width, these rims are compatible with tires up to 32mm, making them versatile, comfortable and ideal for adverse road conditions. The disc-specific hubs feature super strong QRM bearings that provide low friction and long-term durability, with no servicing needed. The Aksium Disc is made for standard quick release, and is compatible with 6-Bolt or Center Lock brake rotors.
Equally adept on fast, rolling roads or mountain terrain, the Ksyrium Pro UST gives you all the advantages of Mavic's Road Tubeless system including less rolling resistance and a smoother ride quality. When paired with the new Yksion Pro UST tubeless tires, you get a perfect union between the wheel and tire, ensuring easy, hassle-free installation and removal thanks to Mavic's proven UST technology. And no tubes means no friction with the tire, so you roll faster using less energy. You can also lower your tire pressure for a smoother, more compliant ride, even on rough roads, with a reduced risk of punctures. Beyond the benefits of tubeless, all the other favorite features of this wheel stay the same. A wider rim shape (17mm internally) allows for an 18% increase in air volume for your tires. That extra volume gives you a more controlled and comfortable ride without compromising efficiency. The Zicral alloy spokes are stiffer, stronger and lighter than traditional stainless steel spokes. The Isopulse lacing pattern (radial lacing on the drive side) allows a more balanced spoke tension for a stiffer, more stable wheel. Fore drilling creates the strongest possible connection between rim and spokes, increasing stiffness by about 20%. Each part of the rim is precisely machined using just the right amount of material to provide stiffness and strength, while maintaining weight at only 400g. Total wheel weight is about 1420g.
