3T Mercurio 60 LTD Tubular Road Wheelset - 700c, huge saving off RRP

Mercurio 60 Ltd is a medium-deep aero race wheel in 3T's flagship Mercurio tubular range. Deploying the full range of 3T's new-generation technologies, it is ultra-light, spins up quickly, rolls fast, and brakes hard in wet or dry. All-carbon-fibre rim, 63 mm deep x 23 mm wide, has spoke pockets molded in to the rim sidewall to capture the non-nipple end of the straight Sapim CX-Ray spokes (18 front, 24 rear). Putting the nipples at the hub end cuts inertia at the rim, so the wheel accelerates faster. Rear hub supports Campagnolo 10/11 speed, Shimano 10/11 speed, and SRAM cassettes. Wheels are supplied with 3T custom brake pads made by SwissStop.

Wheels accelerate well and seemingly hold speed as well as, or better, than most top-tier aero competitors that I have tried. Braking is acceptable but unsurprisingly not as good as alloy. They are consistent though which is a bonus on carbon brake tracks. Stiffness is also extremely good with little brake rub under high power, a standard problem on my bike frame, and finding them better than my campag shamal ultras in this regard. Something I wasn't expecting. I am also finding them comfortable which is a rare combination with decent power transfer. Only issue, and why they are only 4 stars, is the rear wheel was slightly out of true on delivery which I found surprising considering 3T are normally very good on QA. They do seem built well but time will tell on that. All that aside, at the the price I brought them they are 20/10 for value. It would be a struggle to find anything better at twice the price.
Very happy with my wheels - Arrived nicely packaged in great condition. They perform as advertised and roll beautifully. I couldn't be more pleased with them and at an amazing price they are a steal. Thanks
