Mavic Introduces UST Line, Bringing Simplicity And Safety To Road Tubeless

8

Mavic brings an easy, safe, and fast tubeless system to the road with UST. Universal System Tubeless (UST) is the only standard in road tubeless that considers both the rim and tire as a system. It’s not just a rim, a wheel, or tire considered alone, but the perfect match between precisely manufactured tire beads (stiffness and diameter) and rim contour.

Testing the UST system on a wet track is only a small glimpse of what Mavic does to assure their product are one of the best and safest on the market.

Creating the easiest and safest road tubeless design on the market begins with a rim contour that follows exacting dimensions to achieve beadlock and the ability to run flat, in addition to providing consistent tire inflation. Combined with the Yksion Pro UST tire, the system ensures tight control of production tolerances and a 100% match of rim and tire. Helping ease the tire installation and removal process is the use of a Kevlar tire bead that is more pliable than the standard carbon bead of other tubeless tires on the market. This allows for a tool-free process that can be inflated by a standard floor pump. A game changer for road tubeless.

The new Mavic Road UST category will include both carbon and aluminum models of Comete, Cosmic, Ksyrium, and Allroad lines.

Benefits of Mavic Road UST

  • Control in manufacturing provides the optimal rim diameter along with a precise tire bead diameter and stiffness/stretch. This ensures a lifetime of hassle-free installation/maintenance when using UST approved products.

  • Perfect union between tire and wheel, ensuring easy installation and removal, is guaranteed thanks to the patented UST technology and wheel-tire system foundation.

  • UST system (including sealant) is 40g lighter than a traditional tire and tube system.

  • No tube means no friction with the tire resulting in a faster rolling system. At equal pressure, removing the tube lowers rolling resistance by 15%. With 15 PSI removed, the tubeless tire still rolls 5% faster than the tube-type set up, yet results in a more comfortable ride.

The new Yksion Pro UST tire is designed to perfectly mate with the new UST road line of wheels.
