2018 M5 Clincher

Material: CARBON Depth: 50mm
Weight (Set): 1,605g Width: 24mm 

 

The M5's have seen countless podium finishes on varying courses. They are light enough to handle the steepest of climbs yet provide you with a nice braking performance due to the newly developed brake track. They are deep enough to provide you with an “unfair” aerodynamic advantage on the flats. Bottom line, the M5’s will bring you to the line alone. It is up to you to decide how to celebrate the win.

The M5s' construction is informed by the Dual Carbon Layer Process, or DLP. Mercury blends high- and mid-moduli carbon fibers to straddle the best balance between the lightweight and stiffness of the former and the fatigue-resistance and durability of the latter. DLP also involves the incorporation of basalt fibers in the brake track to reduce heat build-up and increase stopping power. While reduced heat is mostly applicable to tubular wheels, the increased stopping power goes a long way toward addressing the poor braking that is one of the most common critiques of carbon wheels.

The M5 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.
