What’s New: Mavic Ksyrium 125 ans

Ksyrium125_rear

2014 marks the 125th anniversary of French wheel manufacturer Mavic, so to commemorate their long-standing presence in the peloton and their impressive list of riders who raced and won on their wheels, Mavic has produced 6,000 special edition Ksyrium wheelsets, dubbed the Ksyrium 125 ans (125 anniversary).  Weighing in at an impressive 1370g for the pair, the Ksyrium 125 ans is one of the lightest alloy clinchers that can be found out on the road, making it an excellent choice for those who fancy riding skywards.  Not only is the Ksyrium 125 ans low in weight, but it’s also marginally more aerodynamic due to the milling process the wheels go through, dubbed ISM4D.  As with all Mavic wheelsets, the Ksyrium 125 ans come as a system which includes tires; in this case, the newly updated Yskion 125 ans.  The Ksyrium 125 ans also features Mavic’s very own Exalith 2 braking technology, which performs as it should in all weather conditions.  Finally, the black on black color scheme cut with the yellow looks clean and classic.  The whole wheelset system (wheels and tires) runs for $1850, and with a grand total of 6,000 being produced, our pair won’t be here at the shop for long.

Pinarello has, one again, outdone themselves, this time with the help from automobile manufacturer Jaguar, two-time Tour de France victors TeamSKY, as well as the PinarelloLAB.  The result of this combination is the new Dogma F8: lighter, stiffer, and more aerodynamic than its predecessor, the Dogma 65.1 Think 2.

The frame, made from Torayca T1100 1K carbon, which until now has been exclusively used in the aircraft industry, takes Pinarello’s philosophy of asymmetrical frame design to the next level.  The new design of the F8 is not only 16% more balanced than the Dogma 65.1 Think 2, but 43% more balanced than traditional non-asymmetric frames.  Why is this important?  Simply put, better power transfer making you go faster.  Not only is the F8 more balanced than its predecessor, but its also 12% stiffer while being 120 grams lighter.  What does this mean?  The new F8 is more lively and responsive than its predecessor as well.  It does all of this while still maintaining that indescribable ride quality that only comes with a Pinarello.  There are 13 different sizes ranging from 42cm to 62cm with multiple color options.

Look for it this year at the Tour de France as SKY Pro Cycling attempts to take the maillot juane for the third year in a row!
