Our 2019 off-road line up has been redesigned for the new season to get your rig up the mountain, across the gravel and over the line faster than ever before. With many riders using wider, and wider tires these days, you may think that XC specific wheelsets are going by the wayside - not here at Mercury. Whether you are a serious XC racer, a gravel grinder or just prefer the classic ride characteristics of a skinnier rim and traditional width tire, this wheelset is right up your alley. They can pick their way up a technical rock stairset as confidently as a Nepalese mountain goat, rip downhill, and corner with the precision of a surgeons scalpel.
Two acronyms that you will get used to hearing with this wheelset will be - K.O.M., and P.R.! Our G3 wheels are all about efficiency, and getting every last watt from your legs transferred to the trail. The rim is a solid 30mm wide, and 24mm deep providing a stiff, responsive, yet forgiving ride. Our hand built wheels are laced two-cross with Sapim Double butted spokes, and alloy nipples to trim weight, all centered around our sealed-bearing, Mercury designed hubs that can convert from thru axle to QR easily so you can use it on your whole fleet of bikes, regardless of drop out standards. The set comes in at a respectable 1,644g. Which is only about 100g heavier than the competitions full carbon XC options, at about half the price.
They're also available in two sizes - 700c (29") or 650b (27.5") to help fit a multitude of applications and/or conversions.
Your perfect training partner.New to the Mercury line up is the M1 clincher. The all new tubeless compatible rim profile coupled with our proprietary alloy brings a stiffer and lighter set of wheels. We utilized Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to optimize the strength to weight ratio, lateral stiffness and durability.
We laser etch the Mercury logo on the rim to keep your wheels looking as good as the first day you mount them! We all know that keeping your wheels looking good is always a battle. Between road grime, rock chips and mud wreaking havoc, the last thing you should worry about is that vinyl decal falling off.
Our hubs boast wider flanges creating additional lateral stiffness, the axle has been optimized to lower the weight without compromising performance and 6 sealed cartridge bearings.
What does this all mean? Expect one of the smoothest and most durable set of training wheels you will ever ride

A triathlete's or time-trialist's dream wheelset. When the speeds are high, you need to go deep.
We all want to win and win big. The M9's are rim profile has been designed for everything aero. They are plenty deep at 88mm and plenty wide at 24mm and have been seen in the Faster wind tunnel with the SmartStop Pro Cycling team. The test was completed with real world conditions with the bike and rider. As expected our wheels proved to be some of the fastest wheels on the market.
Don't let a crosswind enter into you equation of which wheels to choose. Our rims have a rounded trailing edge to help you stay stable during any crosswind situation.
The M9’s are your choice for anything flat where aerodynamics play the most important role. Whether it is a time trial, triathlon, long road race or a crit; the M9’s are the perfect wheel set for you.
The M9 is a solid 24 millimeters wide, which means you can run lower PSI for a more comfortable ride that corners with unparalleled confidence. Wider rims also have some counter-intuitive effects when compared to those standard 19 millimeter rims: they actually decrease rolling resistance and increase aerodynamics.
The aerodynamic benefits of a deep dish rim are further complemented by Mercury's Seamless Transition Technology (STT), which integrates the brake strip with the rest of the rim in order to eliminate any obstructions to wind flow and reduce drag-causing turbulence.
The M9s are finished off with Sapim's indefatigable Race spokes and Mercury's own hubs. The rear hub includes a generous 3 pawls for an engagement that's as close to immediate as anything we've seen on the market today, and the front hub has an extra-wide 72millimeter flange for reduced flex under hard efforts and confident stability at speed. Both hubs have a 15 millimeter axle that reduces to accommodate a traditional quick release and two and four oversized bearings in the front and back, respectively.
