About the Mavic Ellipse Pro Carbon UST Wheelset This is the secret weapon of fixed gear racers. When those speed demons are hammering the streets in ultra-fast, ultra-technical crits, like the famous Red Hook series, they demand wheels that deliver speed, reliability, and even more speed. These wheels were developed alongside the racers who initially rode Mavic"s famous Ellipse training wheels, a standard for velodrome and fixed gear winter training. Mavic knew they could do even better, so they began testing various rim depths, spokes and lacing styles in tubular, clincher, and then UST Tubeless. This process led to the Ellipse Pro Carbon UST. The race-proven 64mm deep Comete Pro Carbon UST rims are laced up with 20 patented steel aero spokes on our sturdy Ellipse hub. The rear hub is flip-flop style, so you can mount one cog on each side and make quick gear ratio swaps according to the racecourse or terrain. The wheel-tire system also comes with our super-fast and efficient Yksion Pro UST tubeless tires in 25mm, and the rubber can be replaced with track-specific clincher tires for any indoor training sessions at your local velodrome. Key Features: Aerodynamic and stiff for speed and acceleration 64mm deep full carbon NACA rim profile 26mm wide, optimized for 25mm tires for low drag and high crosswind stability 20 flat straight pull spokes, laced 3x, for high lateral stiffness Fast and efficient on straights, more control when cornering UST eliminates tube friction for less rolling resistance UST lets you ride with lower tire pressures for improved grip in the corners 11-Storm tire compound delivers the perfect balance between rolling efficiency and grip Easy to set up and maintain for daily training or race use Simple tubeless tire set up and high puncture protection Flip-flop rear hub lets you use 2 cogs on the same wheel for more versatility Comes complete with tyres so you will be rolling in no time About Mavic Mavic is a French bicycle components man
