A solid training partner.

The days of clear delineations between delicate race wheels and bombproof training wheels are largely past, but it still feels wrong to head out the door into a looming weather forecast and risk putting our beautiful carbon wheels through the stress of high winds, rainstorms, and the road grime that often accompanies those conditions. Instead, leave the carbon at home for more fair weather endeavors and swap out your brake pads to roll under the clouds with calm peace of mind on a solid set of aluminum training wheels like the Mercury Wheels M1 Clincher Wheelset.

Made from lightweight yet durable alloy, this wheelset is the ideal training companion to give your race wheels a break from the elements and a more than capable option to have waiting patiently in the wheel pit or follow truck on race day. A 17mm rim width sits on the narrow side of ever-widening rim trends, which we feel makes this wheelset well suited for riders who prefer 23mm or 25mm road tires over something beefier.

  • A reliable aluminum road wheelset
  • Alloy rim construction balances strength, weight, and cost
  • Shallow rim depth remains stable in the wind
  • Aluminum braking surface provides stopping power in variable conditions
  • Internal rim width promotes ideal road tire shape
  • Laser etched logos won't peel away

Great wheelset at a great price!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use these as my main training wheels on my Seven. Have over 3100 miles with no issues. Great quality and price!

Love these wheels!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had these M1's for 1 year and they have held up great. So far so good with over 1900 miles on them. Riding with 700x28 Michelin tires makes for a perfect combo.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I’ve had these wheels for a little over 2 years and they’ve been great. I’ve hit many potholes and rough patches and they stay completely true with no rim damage. Hub set is smooth from day one until now. Very solid alloy wheelset.

Unanswered Question

Are these wheels 10-speed SRAM compatible? Also, are quick release skewers included? Thanks

Unanswered Question

Would it be possible to remove the freehub and replace it with a different one? I've got a Campy Mirage 8 speed free hub, 36mm deep x 36mm wide, I'd like to swap in.

Solid training wheelset

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

2 years and counting with no problems. Still true and roll well. Two thumbs up!

Can these accommodate a 9-speed cassette?

These Mercury M1 wheels are compatible with a 9 speed cassette. But you will probably need to source a spacer for the freehub body.

What a Deal!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I own a pair of these mated to the Schwalbe Pro One tubeless tires. I've been riding the M1’s for 10 months and they have wildly exceeded my expectations. Fast and sure braking, Incredibly smooth and low rolling resistance. Buy them, you won't regret it.

Mercury m1 wheel set

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Ordered the set. Front wheel was out of true , they offered to have my shop fix it .every thing worked out fine. Wheel set is fast and definitely a good bit quieter than other sets. Hub quality is very good.

Mercury m1 wheel set

Great all around wheelset!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Put them on my Specialized for some training wheels. Very stiff and strong wheels. Riding with Michelin 25mm tires makes for a perfect combo, especially on rides longer than 75 miles. No complaints.

Great riding!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

One full season as my main training wheels. No issues at all. Very pleased with my purchase.

Excellent wheels!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Upgraded my stock wheels on my Giant. 1900 miles later with no issues. Stiff and light plus great rolling hubs. Highly recommend!

2 Years and Running

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These have treated me well. I have other wheels that I race on but these spend more time on the bike than anything else. Lightweight, somewhat responsive and durable.
Have not needed a true but after two seasons the shop recommended they be re-tensioned, nothing out of the ordinary just a little TLC.
The wheels roll extremely well for not being an aero rim.
HIghly Recommend.

Nice wheelset at Great price.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I picked these M1's up roughly a year ago and I'm very happy with them.. Very well made wheels with great rolling hubs.

Very Happy With Them

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Running 25mm tires on them. Very well built wheels with over 2800 miles on them so far. No complaints at all.

Awesome Wheelset At A Great Price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had these M1's for 10 months and they have held up great. Well built with even tension; months of hard riding and everything is straight and true. Riding with 28mm tires makes for a perfect combo.

Sweet Wheels

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm not an avid racer or anything but I think these wheels have held up quite well. Being on the heavier side of the road (195) I was worried about some of the reviews. I won't say they have never needed a true, but after a couple of sneak attacks from pot holes, what can you expect. After the shop trued them though they have remained as straight as an arrow.

So far so good!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've put on1300 miles so far with no issues at all. Definitely an upgrade from my original oe wheels. Wheels roll good and are still true.

Broken Spokes Seem to be an issue

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Don't but these. Much like David M's review, I had the same issue. Had a broken spoke after three months and less than 700 miles. I was told they don't normally warranty this. I'm only 160lbs, over 50,000 miles on a bike and have never had a broken spoke. Now I have one on a brand new wheel and I'm told they don't warranty this.

I would buy from a local shop and manufacturer who backs up what they sell. A three month old wheel should be backed and done quickly.

Bot one mark on my wheel, it looks brand new, don't use the excuse that it was misused. If you can't stand behind your product, don't make them.

Great Wheelset at Great Price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used these wheels for over a year as my daily training wheels. I'm running Conti 25c tires on them. I've hit several pot holes and the stay true. Very durable and well made wheels. Also they look great. I would recommend these wheels to any serious roadie.
