 Mavic Ksyrium Elite S Alloy Clincher Wheelset
Mavic Ksyrium Elite S Alloy Clincher Wheelset
A perfect blend of lightness and strength that's the Ksyrium Elite S clincher wheels. Great for training or racing, these wheels are more than capable of taking the stress and strain you'll put them through. Fitted with Yksion tyres also.
 

Can you buy a rear wheel alone?

I have a crack in the rim of my existing (4 year old) wheel and need to replace it. Front wheel is fine.

Currently use 700x32c tyres would 700x25c fit?

I am currently using 700x32c and was thinking of changing to 28 or 25 for a little more speed.. Would 700x25c fit?
I have put 28s to replace 32s. Seemed a tight fit but OK.
