Possessing twice the tensile strength of High-Modulus carbon fiber, Fiber-X employs damping characteristics to deliver a trail-tuned ride while increasing durability - durable enough to withstand a double impact of 120 joules at the same location. The Fiber-X material is blended into all of Mercury’s X-Series wheels and is visible by its distinguishable silver stripe. Rim profiles feature an optimized trapezoidal profile that funnels trail input into the elastic material to dissipate energy and avoid failure. All X-series wheels feature off-set rim beds, embossed logos, hook-less beads and are available in widths ranging from 25~40mm internally. At their center, is Mercury’s proprietary Axis straight-pull hub featuring triple stepped 6 pawl system to deliver 3.5° of engagement. All current wheel diameters, axle sizes and freehub standards are supported.

The 2019 Enduro class wheels features an updated, redesigned lower profile hoop, ready to run any size tire from a svelte 2.2, all the way up to a big 2.8. A 28 spoke-count for the front and rear keeps things light while not compromising strength. Its all built around our Mercury Disc hubs, using Sapim Race double-butted spokes, paired with Sapim brass nipples for a durable and reliable wheel that can be easily serviced for a long life and many seasons of shredding. The rims are laser welded for a seamless, balanced rim and they have a pronounced bead socket in addition to a flat rimbed that makes setting up tubeless a breeze. Our two cross lacing pattern gives it great lateral stiffness, while giving a small amount of compliance vertically, adding up to a sure-footed, comfortable, precise steering wheelset. Whether you are looking to update your bike with a lighter, stronger set of wheels or you want something that corners and climbs better than what you have, this is the wheelset for you.
