I recently purchased these and even though they came with 40mm Yksion Allroad tires installed I wanted to test out Mavic's UST tubeless. I removed one tire completely and reinstalled it. Seated within seconds using a simple floor pump. As soon as pressure got near 20 psi the tire popped into the beads. Easy as that. I deflated, added sealant, reinflated and it held air perfectly. Hubs are smooth, build quality seems strong, and although not the lightest wheels out there I dropped a full pound and a half off my gravel bike by replacing wheels, cassette and rotors.
Bought in to the road tubeless craze and after seeing a few videos, including one from GCN, decided to go with this wheelset. Haven't regretted it yet. Wheels and tires have been durable around Michigan's terrible roads, crashing through miles of broken asphalt and concrete, gliding along debris-covered shoulders, and shrugging off anything and everything in its path. The tires roll and grip very well at 80 psi, haven't assessed wet weather grip yet. Hubs engages very quickly and has a quiet but nice-sounding freewheel noise. Wheelset looks great with the aero spokes. Tires went on very easy, especially compared with my OE wheelset, where I removed some skin and blistered my hands trying to put tires on the OE rims. Very satisfied after 500 km of use so far.
This was my first tubeless setup and Mavic made the transition as easy as can be. Ive heard stories about tubeless setup nightmares. This wheelset came with the tires already seated. Although Ive heard that Mavic has made the process as simple as traditional tubed tires.
My first race on them was Tour de Donut. Enjoyed the fact I could run lower tire pressure being 200 lbs. Averaged 20mph no problem for the race. Along with eating 19 donuts, I secured the podium and won my first TDD.
Anywho, love the wheelset and tires. 200g lighter than my older Zipp clinchers. Glad I converted.
I was looking for a stiff and light wheel set to replace my Easton EA 90s that were breaking spokes. I wanted a reputable, known brand that could be serviced anywhere. I like to climb, so I wanted something light and stiff, not necessarily the fastest set. These Dura Ace wheels are fantastic! They make the bike seem to float uphill.
