Blazing fast on flat terrain plus plenty light for climbing and accelerating, the Mercury M5 Carbon 700c Wheelset is a super-star all-arounder. The rims measure 55mm, a depth that ensures superb aerodynamics and stiffness while still being plenty light for hilly terrain. The M5 Carbon's construction features 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. Their 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 Carbon wheels are laced with Sapim butted, bladed spokes which are incredibly strong as well as lightweight courtesy of their proprietary butting. The M5 Carbon wheels also utilize Mercury Pro hubs, with a rear hub that engages 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 sealed cartridge bearings in the front and back, respectively. Additionally, the M5 Carbon rims are a solid 24mm wide, which means you can run lower PSI for a more comfortable ride that corners with unparalleled confidence.
