    Solid Wheelset!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Upgraded my P2 bike to these wheels. I've mounted 25c Schwalbe one road tires on these wheels and they ride perfect. Extremely light and soft on the road. Just an excellent wheelset.

    3700 miles so far and all is good.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My first full carbon wheelset and I can feel the difference. Stats show that I am faster and I can feel the bike accelerating more quickly and holding speed longer. Hills are about the same but flats and downhills are awesome. Plus the dark grey stealth looks amazing on my older Pinarello Prince.

    2 Failed Hubs, Negative Reviews deleted

      BE VERY CAREFUL. I had 2 sets of wheels fail within a week. I posted reviews reflecting this and they have been flagged and deleted. Other folks have posted negative reviews for the same problem and those reviews have also been deleted. This is shady stuff and these wheels have a legitimate mechanical issue. I would absolutely not buy these wheels again.

      CC replaced/refunded the failed wheels. Customer service here has been very good.

      Hey dean. I know the guys at mercury plus I own 4 sets of their wheels including 2 sets of S5’s. Did you reach out to support to see if they could help you. Their a top notch company.

      Dean. Did you use the freehub washer/collar when setting up? I bought a set 3 weeks ago and haven’t had any hub or mechanical issues.

      Great wheelset!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have never owned a set of carbon wheels so did not know what to expect other than what I have researched. I'm impressed with the improved ride quality and responsiveness. I have fitted Michelin Pro 28c tubeless tires (really easy to fit). Upgrade has completely changed the feel of my bike for the better. They look great too. Two thumbs up.

      2nd set of S5's

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      Just bought a "new to me" DeRosa neo primato steel frame. I built it up with a red groupset and needed some fancy wheels to go with it. I bought my 2nd set of S5's (the other set is disc and on my Masi evoluzione). First, it looks really cool! and second, it gives the bike a certain kick! I feel like I am driving an old 911 Porsche with a souped up engine!

      Great Deal!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These are the best over all performing wheels I have ridden throughout the years. They beat Zipp 404, and a whole bunch of others and they are priced very good.

      Loud hubs, but broken as well

      • Fit: True to size

      I picked these up as my first carbon wheelset. I loved them right off the bat and lasted a good 9 months of riding. I went to change my chain and took the wheel off. Sure enough, the cassette just fell off. Apparently there is a support rod that holds the internal hub together that sheered off. I've never seen a hub fail like this. I've emailed support from Mercury and hopefully I'll get a replacement. Fingers crossed.

      Update review: Customer service has been a great help and very responsive. Sent replacement hub parts quickly.

      Awesome Upgrade

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I put a set of these S5 wheels on a Litespeed I was building and I love them. They are light weight and strong. They accelerate well and are good on the climbs. I don't think you can find a better wheels for the price. I would recommend and have recommended these to my riding buddies.

      Great Performance

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I absolutely love these wheels. Mercury nails it with the S5! Amazing ride quality! Great craftsmanship. Cuts through wind great and super light weight. I paired these with the Michelin Power 28c tires and I still can't get over how smooth the ride is. A must have for sure if you're in the market for a carbon wheel set at a great price.

      Wow!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Waited a little over a year to write a review. I can't believe how good these S5 wheels are! They're just straight up fast. Hubs are extremely smooth. Great aero properties, they do really well in cross winds and they are just stiff as hell. Running Conti 5000 28c tires on them and they feel good. Best purchase that I’ve made in a long time.

      Love my S5’s!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Just upgraded my OE stock wheels on my Colnago C59 and what a difference in the ride. They preform great on climbs and descents plus handle crosswinds good. They come with Mercury brake pads and they work well without any squeal. Tubeless setup was easy with no issues. Very impressed with these wheels.

      Great Buy!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I added these to my BMC about 8 months ago, to upgrade over the standard Mavic aluminum wheels. This is my first set of carbon wheels and to be honest, I really wasn't expecting to notice a big difference. I am really impressed with how stiff, light and lively these wheels feel. It is an excellent upgrade and when you combine the budget price it a unbelievable deal. Highly recommend these wheels.

      S5 goodness!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I needed a new set of wheels for my older Basso that was affordable. The S5’s make for a great all-around wheel set that can be used for both training and racing. Smooth rolling hubs and with the gray decals they look good.

      Fast!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I needed a set of carbon wheels for my older Cervelo P2 that wasn’t going to break the bank. What a great set of wheels. This wheelset roll incredibly well. Super responsive with good freehub engagement. Handles crosswinds great with good braking without the noise. True all around performance.

      Superb wheelset!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If you are looking for a incredible training and race wheelset that won't break your bank, are stiff, aero, and ready to go, these wheels are for you. Great job Mercury.

      What size valve length do you use on the S5 rim with a tube? Thanks
