Not quite as pictured

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The center sleeve and spindle sleeves are white and not black as pictured at least with the black ceramic PF30. I get it that it's probably still the same great internal awesomeness but for $265 it needs to be EXACTLY identical to what the photo shows or what the Chris King website shows. Why? Knockoffs. At least in my experience, there's always something just a tiny bit off on a knockoff. Fit, finish color, labels - something. It makes you wonder. I don't like to wonder. Just my 2 cents.

I bought a set of the KSYRIUM PRO DISC wheels at a discount. Even at 58% off, I'm still not impressed at all. My biggest complaint is the engagement of the rear hub is noticeably lacking compared to a DT 350 or DT 240. There's quite the dead space, especially in the return pedal stroke.

The wheel is lighter than some of its competitors but it doesn't feel stiff to a degree that I thought would almost be a minimum. Spongy is the best description I can think of.

Whether it's a negative or not is subjective but the rear hub is almost completely silent. You will most definitely be sneaking up on people if that's your thing. It just made me somehow think I drop my chain about 100 times per ride.

I liked the LOOK of the wheel at least. The spokes appear to be bomber and the rims have some interesting sculpting. The tires are too narrow for my taste stock but the rims mounted a 28mm easily.

Not much to complain about in the front but there some negative there too. Mavic doesn't include a 15mm TA adapter although they do include several others (12mm TA and 9mm QR).

I guess it's a wheel I can use on a trainer or as a backup but I would be disappointed if it was my go-to wheelset. Actually, I'm disappointed enough either way to write this review.

I normally like Ergon grips. These seem like a step back compared to the GS. The internal structure lacks the guide for the grips at the clamp like the GS. This means you can tighten the clamp down so far as to create a noticeable edge or gap at the grip at the spec 5nM.

Also, the are grey not black. The package says grey and the look grey.
