Grand Prix 5000 Tubeless

Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

I recently went to Mavic Ksyrium Elite USTs. Unbelievable. Faster, smoother and lighter than any clincher I've ever ridden. Love this setup. They're 25s. And, easier to mount than my clinchers. Sounds like you're having fun. Perfect.

So do these Grand Prix 5000 Tubeless tires work with the Mavic UST system? Or are they different?

Internet rumblings say GP5000s adhere to the yet-to-be-published ETRTO TL standard, which internet rumblings state is based off of Mavicís UST. Sorry I canít be of more help - Iíve tried hard to find first hand sources of this information and struck out so I have no idea if either of those statements are true. It may just be better to assume theyíre false.

Don't know, I do know that someone in a FB group Iím in had issues getting the tire on his Ksyrium Pro UST rims. Donít know if he ever got them on or if it was an operator headspace and timing issue with respect to mounting.

I can tell you that I have been super happy with the Yksion Pro UST tires.

That's a bummer. UST seem like a well designed spec, and I'm willing to jump on the bandwagon, but not if it means I'm stuck with only Mavic tires.

Aha. Found a source:

ďUniversal:
The only tubeless system that is universally accepted and recognized by every tyre and rim manufacturers.
The only tubeless system that is included in the standards that rule the bicycle wheel and tyre world! ISO 4210 / 5775 (in progress) and ETRTO 2018.
Riderís benefit : the only tubeless system that has been tested and approved for safety and ease of use.Ē

I tried putting a mavic tire on a UST rim at sea otter last year (they were making a big deal out of it) and I can confirm that it was truly a cinch. If thatís the standard weíre adpoting, then Iím all for it.
