Customer service says tires are not included with the wheelset. YES they are. What a blessing. They ship with Yksion Pro tires installed. Sale price of $531 (free shipping and no tax) less tire, tube and rim tape value of $100 to $150... well you can do the math. Prior to receiving I had rim tape, tubes and tires ready to install. What a pleasure to unpack, install cassette, mount wth provided Mavic skewers and air up the free Yksions. Mavic Kysrium Elite's rocked their maiden voyage.
