After the first ride on the new wheels, Cody immediately remarked at the wheels stiffness, noticeably stiffer than the carbon Reynolds wheels he had previously. This translates to quicker acceleration and better handling, although he did adjust air pressure down slightly due to the slightly harsher ride.
The new freehub is also a noticeable improvement from past models, with a 360 degree engagement system with 60 points of engagement. This results in a much faster engagement from the freehub after coasting vs the previous models with four or even two pauls.

Mavics proprietary rim machining process reduces weight by up to 15% over previous models. Its the wavy look you see on the spoke side of the rim, adding material at the spoke for strength and stiffness and removing material between spokes to reduce weight. Another new feature is the rounded rim profile, said to increase aerodynamics.
Mavics Kysrium Rims aren’t drilled for the spoke nipples, the rim wall is pushed up and into the rim and then threaded for better strength and stiffness.
