At first blush, you might be inclined to compare Mercury's M3 Carbon Clincher Wheelset to other manufacturers' pure climbing wheels. And you'd be right to do so, at least when it comes to climbing. But these aren't just a one-trick pony. The M3s' aerodynamic pedigree, low weight, and brute strength also recommend them for all the ups, downs, and flat-outs of competitive cycling. They cover the demands of every terrain on every day of your cycling life.
The rims measure 38 millimeters, a depth that strikes an all-purpose middle ground between straight-on aerodynamics, hiding from crosswinds, and considerations of weight for climbing. The M3 is a solid 24mm 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.
This wheelset comes installed with Mercury rim strip and front 15mm end caps. Included in the box (when purchased from Mercury): 12mm endcaps, QR endcaps and QR rear axle w/ endcaps. If you're purchasing from another source, confirm with that vendor.
WARRANTY: 2 yr warranty extends from the date of purchase, applies only to the original owner, and is not transferable.WARRANTY INFO

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
