While the rim brake version of Mavic's Ksyrium Pro Carbon UST Disc Wheel basks in the limelight garnered by its excellent iTgMAX braking surface, these wheels sits smugly by its side with a similar full-carbon rim construction and the incomparable stopping confidence of Centerlock disc-brakes. With a few extra spokes to manage the additional forces of disc brakes, the Ksyrium Pro Carbon UST Disc brings renowned Mavic reliability in a lightweight package that pairs effortlessly with your shiny new disc-equipped road frame. Mavic uses 3K carbon fibers to shape the rims in a blunt profile. Mavic constructed it specifically with climbing and endurance in mind, so the 32mm-deep wheels are dependably stable while riding in crosswinds and tackling winding, long ascents. It uses a NACA inspired rim shape that helps minimize aerodynamic drag while the reduced inertia, thanks to that lighter weight rim, delivers excellent responsiveness. Mavic also paid close attention to the wheels' impact resistance, which earned high ratings, ensuring the wheels will be able to withstand long days on chip-sealed roads and weather-beaten shoulders while you're dreaming of glass smooth tarmac. Though it tends to privilege tradition, Mavic's Instant Drive 360 freehub shows it's not afraid of well-executed change by updating these wheels with its latest ratchet ring engagement system. The design is centered on a 40 tooth, dual ratchet construction that boasts a quick nine degrees of engagement. This marks a significant step forward for factory-built wheels because it features the kind of responsiveness, low drag, longevity, and easy maintenance normally reserved for third-party hubs on hand-built wheels. The Instant Drive 360 hubs also feature more reliable, no-contact seals as a barrier against damaging road grit, and they save a claimed 40g compared to its FTS-L hubs. The new hubs are laced to the rims with 24 double-butted, straight-pull, aero steel spokes arranged in a two-cross patt...
