The Mercury M3 is the workhorse of the Mercury carbon wheel line up. Weighing-in at less than most climbing wheels, the M3’s are the wheel of choice when the road turns up or when you need to get things done. Utilizing our seamless rim technology and wider rim profile, you will gain a bit of aerodynamic advantage even from our shallowest rim profile.
Stiffer than they are light, the M3s were the wheels the SmartStop Professional Cycling Team chose to help them win countless races this year.
|Material: CARBON||Depth: 36mm|
|Weight (Set): 1,485g||Width: 24/18mm|
The M3c is our lightest, most responsive clincher road wheelset on offer. Coming in at 1,485 grams for the set, they are your express ticket to the top of the pass and the front of the peloton.
The updated profile of the rim is a razors-edge balance of aerodynamic capability, and the strength and rigidity that out-of-saddle grinds to the top demand. The rim measures 36mm deep, and 24mm wide to accommodate a wide array of tire choices. With the internal width of 20mm, including a 2mm bead socket, a 25mm tire makes an ideal shape and larger tires can expand to their full volume with less pressure, further decreasing rolling resistance and improving traction and handling.
As always, our M series are built with bladed Sapim spokes and alloy nipples.

Our M3 Clincher wheels aren't just a one-trick pony for climbing. 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 M3 rims measure 30 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.</p>
The M3s are laced with Sapim spokes, their most popular bladed model, which are capable of withstanding a claimed one million load reversals of fatigue testing while still saving weight courtesy of their proprietary butting. They connect to proprietary Mercury Pro hubs, which engage with 3 pawls for a nearly immediate responsiveness that takes advantage of the rims' low rotational inertia. The front hub has an extra-wide 72 millimeter flange for reduced flex under hard efforts and confident stability at speed. Both hubs have a 15 millimeter axle that tapers to accommodate a traditional quick release and two and four over-sized bearings in the front and back, respectively.
