You'd be hard-pressed to find another wheelset that wears the "tried-and-proven" tagline as well as Mavic's Ksyrium. A staple training and racing clincher, loved the world over for its low weight, reliability, clean lines, and serviceability, the Ksyrium lives on in the form of the 125 LTD Wheelset. The wheel/tire system comes in a limited edition colorway, celebrating the French brand's 125 years of wheel design, along with all the proven technologies you've come to know and love from Mavic. Made with Mavic's Maxtal aluminum, the Ksyrium rims are joined with an SUP arc weld on the seam, giving the rims a higher strength to weight ratio than conventional alloy rims and zero brake chatter where the seam is welded. To increase the stiffness of the rim, Fore drilling is used on the lower bridge of the rim, leaving the upper bridge intact and allowing the spoke nipples to be threaded in from the bottom only, increasing the stiffness of the rim by 20 percent. Mavic gave the Ksyrium LTD the Exalith 2 treatment for a higher level of durability and performance on the brake surface. In wet conditions, the Exalith 2 treatment improves braking performance by 18 percent, so you can descend with confidence down rainy mountain passes. The Ksyrium LTD wheelset rolls on Mavic alloy hubs. These light weight hubs come with double sealed, micro-adjustable, C3 cartridge bearings. Mavic increases stability in the rear hub by placing the FTS-L reinforcement between the pawl and hub body. Two stainless steel inserts add rigidity to the fully aluminum hub body, making the hub both lightweight and strong. To keep the wheels light and responsive, Mavic employed their Traction Compression, or Tracomp, spokes. Under normal loads, deflection in the wheel is limited by the traction-resistant nature of carbon fiber. Unlike traditional spokes that flex under greater loads, Tracomp spokes compress to continue supporting the rim, preventing further wheel deflection so you your wheels don't
