Mavic Ksyrium Pro Disc UST wheelset review

Earlier in the year, Mavic went tubeless for all its road wheels and the Ksyrium Pro Disc is one benefactor of this

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Ksyrium Pro Disc wheels provide a quality ride that feels fast, responsive and comfortable, with Mavic throwing all its alloy wheel tech at them. They’re the match of deeper section carbon wheels and are likely to prove more durable and sturdy too.

Mavic has always been cautious about pushing out new technologies too soon. It only introduced all-carbon clinchers in 2016, as it wanted to be sure that its rim brake models could withstand the temperature build-up on long descents. So its switch to tubeless on all its wheels, including the Ksyrium Pro Disc is a vote of confidence in the technology.

Underlying the change is a modification to Mavic’s rims to a wider 19mm internal section, giving its new tubeless-ready Yksion Pro UST tyres a broader stance and increased air volume. It’s also switched to the now more popular 25mm tyre width, although it says that you can run tyres up to 32mm wide. The tread has “tubeless” embossed on it, to make sure that you are using the correct tyres for the rim.
