Our 2018 XC line up has been redesigned for the new season to get your XC rig up the mountain 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, 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 XC 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.
Mercury supports standard 100mm and boost 110mm front wheel 15mm thru-axle systems. We can convert thru-axles to accommodate quick releases if your fork requires the use of a quick release. Front axle specifications are provided by your fork manufacturer. Rear axle configuration is determined by your frame. You can find most in the specs section of the manufacturer website.
Standard = 15mm x 100mm Thru-axle Front
Boost = 15mm x 110mm Thru-Axle Front
12x142 is the most common current rear axle configuration for all-mountain bikes.
12x148 is boost. Rear axle configuration is determined by your frame. You can find most in the specs section of the manufacturer website.

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.View full product details

|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.
