First impressions of the wheel set is good. Fitted and ridden twice with no issues. Had to adjust brakes and gears of course but that is a given. Quality looks good and first impressions of performance is good given the cost. Time tell as the durability with an 85Kg rider.
Upgraded my touring bike wheels for club rides. Noticing a big difference all round. Did not get a choice of 23 or 25s. Got 23s but satisfied. Tested this week with a 150 mile weekend. Spot on. No issues..did the job and gave me that bit more speed to keep up with the roadies.
I have to say that I'm very pleasantly surprised with the quality and performance of these wheels. This was a forced purchase following pothole damage to much more expensive wheels. The riding performance is almost identical and whilst the weight is marginally heavier, it is almost irrelevant given the wight of the person and how much food or kit you carry. I've just completed the somerset 100 and very pleased with the wheels performance. Also excellent value as they came with perfectly serviceable tyres and new inner tubes. You cannot go wrong in terms of club cycling and value for money.
Good wheels, not the lightest but good value for money and well made. Round, true and roll well.
Solid and lite. They've made me, and my bike, lighter and faster.
Probably the best upgrade I have done on any of my bikes. I already had a pair of hand-built light touring wheels but changing to the Mavic Aksiums transformed the ride making it feel much more responsive to pedalling effort. No doubt wheels from higher up the range would have been even better but the Aksiums probably represent the best price/performance ratio.
Only six rides, no problems, they roll well and the tyres didn't puncture in the wet.
These entry level wheels certainly have added a bit of speed for my daily commute. Good build quality, light weight yet robust. They are great, very pleased. Nice touch adding some tyres too.
Great set of wheels for the price, ideal for training purposes. Average speed has increased by 2 kmph. Would recommend these wheels!
the Mavic Askium wheels (with Askium tyres) give a upmarket feel at a very reasonable pricing...very good value for money product. Great for commuting, excellent for the serious road user.
Have had these wheels for a couple of weeks now and am really pleased with them. Like other reviewers, I have seen an increase of 2 km p/h in average speed. Have hit a couple of serious pot holes with no ill effects, so they seem pretty sturdy. Also look pretty slick. Would recommend to others.
A great wheel, tyre and tube package. Seems like a bargain to me. Good bearings pretty stiff and reliable so far. recommended upgrade or cheaper winter wheel depending on your pocket.
These wheels have made a big improvement to performance over the old Alex rims I had, average speed has increased a couple of mile an hour on my usual route, overall a good
investment and great value
My first upgrade to cartridge bearing wheels. The wheels run true and silent and are well finished. Came fitted with inner tubes and tyres, overall a very good deal.
Product of excellent quality, I recommend to all
Great wheelset for the price. Highly reccomended if you are on a budget or as a trainer/commuter.
More than pleased with this product they look fast and feel fast and dont flex like my old wheels. The tires that came with the wheels are 25's so I havent used so cant rate.
Excellent for the 20mile round trip commute to work each day, seem solid and great service and safe delivery from Merlin
Another quality product from Mavic, Ideal for winter training on our poor quality roads. The Mavic tyres are exceptional. All in all very good value for money.
Prompt delivery, Next Day!
Solid all-rounders. A fair weight, good durability and decent bearings make these a sound buy. The Mavic Aksion tires seamed a little light on, but after two rides (one wet & one dry) the appear safe, pretty durable and longer wearing than I gave them credit for. These were purchased at an attractive price thanks Merlin Cycles.
Excellent wheels. Running straight and true , tyres / tubes were already fitted to the rim, so straight on the bike and away ...
Arrived in great condition, no damage. Great value for money wheels and the tyres are better better quality than I expected. Tough, with better bearings and looks than my last 2008 pair. These are perfect for my training bike, and would definitely recommend these items to anybody looking at buying them.
Bought these for my winter wheelset to replace an old pair of Ksyrium Elites and I've not noticed any major difference. Good set of wheels straight out of the box, not the lightest but I've not bought them for that reason, these are purely for winter runs only. I can't fault them and I would happily recommend them to anyone.
I have had Aksiums in the past and have found them to be a good all-round, robust wheel.
The order came complete with a pair of Mavic tyres, however I have not used the tyres, as I felt that they were unsuited to winter riding conditions. I have fitted Continental GP 4000 instead.
The Mavic Aksium S WTS wheels are exactly what I expected: sturdy, reliable and very good value for money.
Put these wheels on my Forme Reve, have noticed they feel much firmer and lighter, can feel the difference up the hills, Worthy upgrade and as always the best price and service from Merlin
Purchased these wheels on recemendation for training.
Very impressed with quality,far better than expecting for
the price and tyres proving very reliable,excellent package
and excellent service
Great value - stiff, light and seem pretty bomb proof, haven't used the tyres yet - but they look brill.
A sound pair of winter wheels for every cafe racer!
Wheels arrived promptly after placement of order. Fast, efficient service.
GREAT SERVICE!! Good price and arrived at 9.30am the following day. Informed progressing of order status spot on.
These wheels were to replace the factory fitted alex rims on my specialized road bike. I have noticed the difference, the ride is much better balanced and feels firm and smooth. I'm not elite enough to notice the power difference though.
2 of the spokes on the rear wheel were not quite aligned, but it was very simple to correct this. The wheel true was very good, but needed a tiny adjustment to make it better.
The recommended min pressure of 100psi takes the tube and tyre out of the manageable roadside repair zone of being able to pump up with a small portable pump.
I'm really pleased with these, makes the ride experience enjoyable.
Fantastic value set of wheels and tyres. I am very impressed for the money, they turned up smooth, true and with tyres and tubes fitted, they just needed pumping up!
My favourite part is the flat spokes :)
Great training wheels at a great price. And if you are a sportive rider on a budget then these are perfectly good as your 'best' wheels. The bearings are super smooth.
This is now the 3rd pair of Aksiums that I've bought over the last few years and when I need another set of training wheels I will buy these again.
I was impressed with the price in comparison with other mail order sites and they were delivered within three days, what more can i say but thanks !!!!!
