    S5 Disc Wheelset

    The Mercury S5 Disc Wheels strike a fine balance between a lightweight climbing wheel and an aerodynamic race wheel, featuring a slightly shallower 50mm rim depth that's just as happy pedaling up a mountain pass as it is sprinting along flat tarmac and gently sloping roads.

    • Carbon fiber road wheels well-suited to all-around riding
    • Carbon layup finds the ideal balance of stiffness and compliance
    • 50mm rim depth offers aero gains without giving up versatility
    • Reliable Mercury sealed bearing hub with snappy engagement
    • Tubeless compatibility for increased grip and comfort
    • Hand-built in Utah by Mercury's expert wheel builders
    • Includes rim strips, valve extenders, cassette spacer
    • Disc brake only, 12mm thru-axle hubs

    Five Stars!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'm tellin you the wheels are an absolute must have, forget about spending thousands on other wheels. I am running 28c Gatorskins and they’re great. I have thousands of miles on them and NEVER trued them. I know thats hard to believe but BELIEVE IT. Plus they look great on my Litespeed.

    Great Performance at a great price

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Best value for your money, hands down. These wheels are light and strong. I've put almost 3000 miles on them and the Continental GP 5000 that I bought along with them to complete my light and tough setup. Highly recommend.

    Amazing wheels!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I just upgraded my DT wheels on my Canyon to these wheels. Nice smooth rolling hubs. Wheels are great on flats and they climb well. Very happy with this purchase.

    Fantastic wheels!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Checks all the boxes. Lightweight full carbon wheels, fast, great power transfer, super aero, quality internals, good price, tubeless compatible and looks great.

    Great all around wheels!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been running these tubeless with 28s on my Fenix and love them. They are fast and light on the road, easily keep pace on fast group rides but still stout enough to tackle fire roads and gravel with confidence. Very happy so far.

    Best Carbon wheelset deal out there!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had these wheels for about 6 months, still absolutely no issues whatsoever. Drag from crosswind is minimal. Super responsive, light, and fast. I can tell a HUGE difference from the Hed wheels I had previously. Great deal plus they look good.

    Excellent wheels

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Fantastic wheel set.
    Stiff, quick to speed.
    I prefer Vittoria Corsa tires and the graphene 2.0 were a very tight fit.
    If you get the disc version you will need the XT outside notched lock ring.
    After several rides I can think of nothing bad to say about these.

    Big difference

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    First set of carbon wheels; first set of wheels deeper than 25mm. Rode up Emigration Canyon today, 11.5 miles from my house to Little Mountain Pass, and rode 3:20 faster than two weeks ago on stock wheels/tires (same time of day; same wind conditions). 2019 Specialized Roubaix. I have these set up as tubeless with 28mm Continental GP5000TL's. At 65 PSI, the ride is so much smoother than stock 28mm Specialized tires at 85 psi. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. This takes "value" carbon wheels to a whole other level. Hundreds less than other respected brander wheels like Hunt.

    Jason C.-

    Are you still as enthusiastic as you were when you wrote this review? I have a Specialized Roubaix Comp that needs a wheel upgrade. I was leaning towards the Roval CL 50 but that is twice as expensive as the Mercury S5. No problems mounting the Conti GP5000?

    Any guidance is much appreciated- Matt

    Hey Matt. No problem mounting the Conti tires. The S5’s are sweet wheels with no issues so far. Definitely recommend.

    Hi Jason. I might be getting a 2020 Roubaix Comp that comes stock with DT R470 Disc wheels with 28c tires. How much lighter/better are these Mercury WheelsS5 Disc wheels compared to the stock wheels? thanks!

    I was planning on these for my 2020 Roubaix Sport

    James and Curtis,

    Got this for a 2020 Specialized Roubaix Sport. Stock DT Swiss R470 are great, but these S5's are something else. Great on the flats, but I feel the difference mostly on the climbing.

    Before the S5's, I've tried Shimano's carbon alloy wheelsets as well. They weigh similar to the S5, but the S5 accelerates much faster.

    Go for it my Roubaix bros, it makes our "tame" Roubaix's a lot wilder.

    Mercury “S”mooth 5’s

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    My first true set of carbon tubeless wheels and they have not disappointed. My Cervelo R3 looks like a machine ready to handle whatever the road lays in its path. Adding Conti GP 5000’s to the mix makes it even better. If in the market for a decently priced wheelset - look no further! Mercury S5 is it!

    Great Product!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought these wheels for my Trek Mondane. For reference, I am 6’1” 195. The rims felt really solid when sprinting and held their own. This is a solid overall wheel that does everything well from climbing to aerodynamics. I highly recommend these wheels.

    Impressive wheels!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought these about 10 months ago and have put over 1800 miles on these with no issues. Have been running 25c tires on them and they've been great. I haven't had to true them at all. Super smooth hubset.

    Nice!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Just upgraded my Cervelo S-Series to these wheels and I’m loving them. Increase my pr time on my daily route. Lightweight and sturdy. They handle cross winds very well. Great deal on these.

    Go to Gravel wheels

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    After reading the other reviews I decided to grab a set for my Moots Route 45. The subtle graphics "caught my eye" as I am a no frills type of guy.
    The performance is what I am most impressed with. They are handbuilt in the US, smooth bearings even after I have ridden it in some slop and have a great ride feel about them. Weighing 195 pounds I tend to flex most wheels, but the S5's seem to have the ride feel and performance balance figured out.
    Tubeless set up was easy with my Gravel King SK's.
    All in all, I am pleased with the wheels and would buy them again.

    If I may ask, what size Gravel Kings SKs did you have on?

    Great all around carbon wheelset!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    With nearly 6k miles, I am very happy with my S5’s. I’m 200 pounds, along with road miles I ride some loose gravel, and they hold up well. The wheels remain true and show no signs of problems. The hubs roll smooth. At the sale price, I might get a set for my girlfriends bike. Very impressive for a great price. Nothing beats hand built wheels.

    Excellent wheels!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I waited to write this review to see how the wheels perform. Having over 2k miles, I can say that I love these wheels! Excellent all around wheelset! Plus they’re hand made in UT. The hubs are awesome and roll forever. Running Michelin Pro 28c tires on them and they feel great.
