A Kan fibration that at the same time is a weak homotopy equivalence is called an **acyclic Kan fibration**. (Also: a *trivial Kan fibration*.)

Acyclic Kan fibrations are the acyclic fibrations in the classical model structure on simplicial sets $sSet_{Qu}$, hence those morphisms which have the right lifting property against monomorphisms (degreewise injections) of simplicial sets.

In particular, this implies that acyclic Kan fibrations are always (in particular: degreewise) surjective in that they have right lifting against any empty bundle $\varnothing \xhookrightarrow{\;} S$ (as opposed to plain Kan fibrations, see this remark).

In fact:

Acyclic Kan fibrations are precisely the morphisms of simplicial sets that have the right lifting property against all simplex boundary inclusions.
