Mavic's Ksyrium series offers so many options for light weight, stiffness, and value. The Ksyrium Equipe S wheelset features semi-aero 6061 aluminum rims, lightweight hubs with stainless inserts in the rear for optimal power transfer, a differential 22mm/24mm front/rear rim depth to keep the front light and the rear light and stiff, and double sealed cartridge bearings that will spin season after season. Add in a pair of Yksion Comp clinchers with a supple 120 tpi casing and high psi threshold, and you've got a race worthy wheelset at a praiseworthy price.
