2011 Mercury M-Series Wheelsets
Mercury Bikes introduces its 2011 M-series clincher or tubular wheelsets composed of the M-3, M-5, M-9 and M-Alloy. The wheelsets were constructed with simplicity and quality in mind. Together with valuable feedback from the Kenda Pro Cycling p/b GEARGRINDER Team, Mercury Bikes made several improvisations to ensure the M-Series stronger and lighter for road racing.
Features to note for the M-Series wheelsets are its 6/4 titanium freehub body, White Industry hubs, oversized 15mm axle and 24-point engagement. It uses Sapim CX-Ray spokes and DT Pro Lock nipples. All the wheelsets are handbuilt in the US and come with a double padded wheelbag, titanium skewers and carbon specific brake pads.
The M-3 is a 39mm full carbon wheelset at 1150g. With a 59mm rim, the M-5 is a wheel you can use for crits, climbing and daily commutes. It weighs 1430g. The 86mm depth of th M-9 wheelset makes it ideal for TT/Triathlon riding and even road racing. The M-9 weighs 1500g. Finally, the M-Alloy comes in at 1260g with a 25mm rim.
