General information about our shipping
Very nice wheelset for the money. Light weight yet feels strong. I like having the strength and lightness of carbon combined with the alloy braking surface. I replaced stock Bontrager wheels on my Trek Domane and they really brought my bike to life.
Good light wheels, similar to the dura-ace wheels, a fraction heavier but half the price. Fantastic value!
Great price anyway from Merlin, then an extra 10% is sweet. Great delivery. Wheels true out of the box. Looking forward to losing some weight over my Mavic Aksiums. Also other reviewers on other websites have said how the carbon makes for a more comfy ride, but the alloy braking surface means there's no loss in braking power, as with some carbon wheels. Very happy .
I bought these primarily as my new 'best' hoops and particularly for a hilly sportive. However, I'm now using them permanently. These are great wheels; they are light, solid, roll well and are relatively quick. They appear hardwearing as they survived a hard fall on their first day out. Given the recent rain, I have appreciated the improved braking that you wouldn't get with full carbon. I have only done a few hundred miles in them so far, so it is too soon to comment on their reliability.
