The Ksyrium Elite road wheel has been a benchmark for reliability, low weight, and versatility for more than a decade. This updated version makes it easier than ever to experience the benefits of riding tubeless. Integrated with our Yksion Elite UST Tubeless tires, the system makes installation, removal, and maintenance simple and hassle-free. Eliminating the tube reduces friction in the system, which means less rolling resistance and higher speeds. You can also lower your tire pressure, which gives you a smoother, more comfortable ride plus added control on rough roads. And, you’ll enjoy a reduced risk of punctures, so you can ride with confidence and push yourself farther.
The rims are engineered with our patented Fore Drilling to form a stronger connection between the spokes and the rim. Isopulse lacing improves stability and boosts lateral stiffness while sprinting or climbing. Our exclusive patented ISM 4D process strategically removes excess material from the rim while maintaining it around the spokes, where tension is applied.
Roll faster and smoother with a reduced risk of punctures
- With UST Road Tubeless, no tube means no friction, so you experience less rolling resistance and higher speeds.
- UST Road Tubeless lets you ride with lower tire pressure for a smoother ride and a reduced risk of punctures.
- Our patented UST system offers a perfect union between tire and wheel, so installation, removal, and maintenance are easy.
Wide, lightweight rims for a comfortable, agile ride
- 17mm internal rim width for increased air volume.
- ISM 4D superlight rim
- Double butted steel spokes
Engineered durability lets you ride more miles without any worries
- Spoke and rim interface are secured with Fore drilling.
- Sealed cartridge bearings designed to last many miles
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
