Mavic Yksion Pro UST – Tubeless Tire Review

Mavic Yksion Pro UST - Tubeless Tire

What they say: The light Road UST tire, with super low rolling resistance and superior grip…

What we say: Mavic were there at the start of road tubeless and have had compatible rims for a long time but have held back making tires as they wanted them to be easy to fit-something Yksion Pro achieves nicely. Three versions are available, this 28c, a 25 mm and a 28 mm in 650b. Our test set weigh 298 g each and measure 26.5 mm wide.

Mavic’s used a 127 thread-per-inch construction employing a single compound it calls 11 Storm plus polyamide with bead-to-bead protection. Interestingly, the tires can be used for either your front or rear wheel (though keep an eye on tread direction), with a maximum pressure of 6 bar (87 psi). Compatible rim widths are between 17-21 mm.

Conclusion: Offering lightweight and high grip, durability is the only question mark with the Yksion Pro UST.
