At last, you can take your Ksyrium loyalties onto the gravel with the reassurance of a wider 19mm internal rim width and compatibility with beefier 25mm and 28mm tires on Mavic's all-new Ksyrium Pro Allroad Disc Wheelset. Get excited about this new edition to Mavic's storied Ksyrium line, because something like this doesn't come around every year. With Mavic giving the widening rim width trend its long-withheld blessing, it's time to put the Allroad Disc on your frame and go enjoy Ksyrium reliability as you roll over choppy back roads and duck onto empty gravel paths.
Using ever-reliable aluminum, Mavic shaped the Allroad Disc carefully, removing excess material to take advantage of aluminum's admirable blend of lightness and strength. Test the responsiveness of the Allroad disc as you attempt to maneuver up a slick gravel climb; the milled rim construction Mavic uses creates a wheelset that reacts quickly when you need it to on punchy climbs and loose sections of road.
Normally, rim width would be a big enough deal on a new wheelset, but Mavic was in an overachieving mood when working on the Allroad Disc. If you're undecided on the Allroad Disc still, the brand new Instant Drive 360 hub alone should be enough motivation to scoop up a set of these wheels. The hub's design, featuring two interlocking ratcheting rings, is the first of its kind introduced on mass-produced wheels, and their nine claimed degrees of engagement and improved seals will make you realize what it actually feels like to pop out of a corner and accelerate into a straightaway.
Set up the Allroad Disc with your choice in rotors with the range of adapters Mavic includes with this wheelset and enjoy the added convenience of Mavic Yksion tubeless tires, which ship with the wheelset. You can run the versatile Yksions clincher or tubeless, and if you do go tubeless, the rims are already sealed so you won't need to use any tape.

Lightweight Wheels For Clydesdales
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These are lightweight (1620g sans tires)
Freehub engagement immediate
Included tires (28c) are fast rolling and comfortable
Finally a wide-ish rim from Mavic!!!
Spokes are Mavic specific = less easily replaced in a pinch
Free hub is only supposed to be used with cartridge cassettes
28c tires are not tubeless ready w/ minimum pressure of 78psi (what's that all about?!)
Only wide-ish at 19mm internal width
So I was out riding a warm-up with my wife, the day before a century ride when I, again, broke a spoke on my Stan's Grail rear wheel. I was learning the hard and stressful way that my wheel set was designed for riders at least twenty pounds lighter than me. Stranded at a local bike shop that had been a mile from the breakdown, I began looking at the Allroads, and my wife noticed, and kindly ordered the wheel set for me while I worked on building my Grails again... The old wheels made it through my century ride, and the Allroads arrived a couple days after. It's worth noting that the rear comes with 9mm quick releases on and the front comes without caps on, requiring threading on your choice of caps.
At 1620 grams, this wheel set is right in line with its price range. Somehow Mavic has also injected them with Crossmax durability and stiffness. The Grails by comparison, are about half as stiff, visibly twisting and wobbling over bumps and in turns.
The tires Ksyrium Elite 28c are smooth and fast rolling. On my first ride with these tires, I was throwing rooster tails from both tires. By the end of the ride the tires were acting as tires should, offering a pretty low rolling resistance per the butt dyno and plenty of grip in the corners. I would purchase these tires again! Only I won't... Because they aren't tubeless capable. And how can that be when these wheels are perfect tubeless by design. No tape, no fuss. And for all that, somehow the matching tires aren't tubeless? I guess I'll be trying out Schwalbes when these are worn out. In the meanwhile I hope I don't get a flat since I really like the pretty black stems that we get with Mavic tubes! Only benefit that comes with not being tubeless I suppose.
All in all, these are a great system, and I'm happy to have them. I love the overall design and the bladed spokes are gorgeous!
As a short aside, as a Clyde, I guess the weight weeny stuff really isn't for me anyhow, but there seems to be this imaginary ideal (1500 gr) that people complain if their wheels outweigh. It's nonsense. Light wheels are great as long as they are functional and strong, useless if they are flexible and weak. Seriously, this number should mean less than the tech and function of a good wheel set. This is that wheel set. It should be noted that the Ksyrium Pro Disc wheel set is 1535 gr. But this means that for 85 gr you get a narrower and not tubeless rim. Everything is a balance.
I bought a pair of these used and they are set up for I think 15mm thru axle in the rear. I need to switch to QR. I was able to do the front, but have no idea what is going on with the rear. Has anyone gone from thru axle back to QR on these?
UPDATE: took to LBS and they removed with vise. Very easy. Didn't charge me either.
I actually went the other direction but you just need to, carefully, remove the black cylinders at each end. They have a rubber o-ring on the inside with is why they are tight but you just need to get a good grip on them and rotate/pull them off. Afterwards you'll be able to replace them with the caps that are specific for QR.
Does the wheel set come with both 12mm and 15mm front hub adapters? If not, are the adapters available here?
Hi Thomas, the optional adapters for 15mm would need to be purchased separately.
The rear freewheel is a little tricky to convert to 12MM thru axel, the parts are included for a full conversion but there isnt any Mavic documentation referencing switching from QR. The rear hub does not have any hex key points, or flat spots for using a cone wrench. Its very strange. Send help.
Joseph, I had a hard time with this myself. If you have an axle vise, this is the best way to do it. The caps are held on by a small internal ridge. There are NO threads. If you don't have any special tools, I took an old QR axle and a deadblow hammer. Put the QR axle through at an angle (where it won't come through the other side, but rests on the inside) and give a good whack or two. This should do the trick.
Getting the 12mm conversion caps on is a bear as well. I have a homemade headset press I used for this and it worked like a charm. Good luck!!
If you run tubeless tires 38 - 41 mm for gravel, what is the recommended tire pressure? I saw a 2011 chart that said 88 psi. That seems extreme for tubeless and for a 38-41mm width tire.
It really depends on the tire. Traditional cyclocross tires typically run 30-50psi for tubeless. If you are running a semi-slick, you could run upwards of 75psi. Check the tire manufacturer for exact pressures.
