Weight of the rims: Mavic Ksyrium Elites

by HowardR   June 24, 2013  

I’m considering buying a pair of Mavic Ksyrium Elites.

Can anyone tell me the weight of the rims on the Ksyriums?. I haven’t been able to find it listed anywhere

My (embarrassingly dated) benchmark for ‘good’ wheels would be hand built Mavic GP4’s (32h) on Campag’ Records (Large flange!!). Any comments on how the Ksyriums would compare or suggestions to alternatives in the same price bracket would be much appreciated.

Many thanks…

I'll be honest , I love my elites but I do find that on a blustery day they don't half catch the Crosswinds ....now I'm not sure if that's down to the wheels or generally my light bike Thinking

Chive30 - Thanks for the info' re blustery days. I currently live in the flatlands of Beds/Herts/Cambs and by and large it seems that if it's not windy then it's blustery.

Slartybartfast - Many thanks for the link, appreciated - It is however the weight of the rims that I'm after.
