Ksyrium Pro Disc 6 Bolt Disc UST Wheelset 

Our extensive experience designing mountain bike disc wheels gave us a big advantage in engineering the Ksyrium Pro UST Disc.

The main difference with disc brakes is that brake forces move from the rim to the hub, farther away from the ground. Unlike a wheel with rim brakes, braking torque is distributed through the hub, spokes and lower rim before it reaches the ground. The braking load is also higher on the front wheel since the center of gravity is transferred to the front of the bike when it’s decelerating. Thus, the front wheel needs to be overbuilt with more spokes (24 instead of 18 or 20), and those spokes need to be crossed on each side of the wheel to make sure brake torque is evenly distributed. The rear wheel also needs 24 spokes, but since the braking torque is generally lower, we use Isopulse lacing (radial lacing on the drive side) to maintain a better balance of the spoke tension, thus greater stability and stiffness.
