Why We Like The Enduro Alloy 27.5in Boost Wheelset
Get the most out of your enduro and all-mountain rig as well as your wallet with the Enduro Alloy 27.5in Boost Wheelset from Mercury Wheels. Built upon 6-bolt hubs and laced with 28 Sapim Race double-butted spokes in a two-cross pattern on each wheel, the end result is a laterally stiff wheel with just enough compliance for positive cornering and tracking across the ruts with a smoother demeanor through the rock gardens. Mercury wisely specs brass nipples instead of alloy since shaving a few extra grams aren't nearly as important as reducing oxidation, especially when in the presence of tubeless sealant, and the potential of rounding and stripping nipples while truing.
The rims are constructed from a lightweight, durable, 6061 alloy for years of trouble-free use and build up a wheelset that comes in at a respectable 1,822-grams. And for those of you worried that alloy isn't as stiff as carbon, the improved spoke bracing angle afforded by Boost spacing reduces flex while slamming into berms and sprinting over the top of rises so you'll get similar ride qualities. With a 30mm internal width, the Enduro Alloy can run anything from 2.1 to 2.7-inch rubber to tame your local terrain.
