I have a couple of sets of the Crank Brothers wheels which also came from Merlin. I run them tubeless which is a piece of cake to set up and really rate them as I can run them at low pressures without worrying that they'll burp or pinch flat so when I saw Merlin had them on sale at their normal crazy prices I took advantage and grabbed myself a bargain. Came super fast too. Thanks Merlin.
Not manage to take the for a spin yet, but they look awesome and feel solid, if they go as well as they look and feel then job should be a good'en, tubeless tyres went on and sealed easy, so far 5/5
Beautiful wheel set! Tight and true straight out of the box and at this price and absolute steal!
Excellent. Solid rims allow for easy use of tubeless tyres with no chance of air leakage. Ultra strong AM wheelset. Stylish as well as functional. My wheels have taken lots abuse and show no problems. Free hub isn't the quietest, but the spoke design makes a great sound. They spin up to speed quickly. Why go for the weaker Cobalts when the Iodines offer so much more for only a tiny weight penalty?
Excellent wheels. Light (for me anyway) and strong. Look fantastic too.
Striking looks and great build quality. Tubeless tyres slipped on with a track pump and lack of spoke holes made setting up very simple.
Have to wait and see how they stack up long term...
Once again Merlin was 30 to 40% cheaper than any competitor. A pair of Iodine 3 for a little over 400 euros is something I haven't seen anywhere else. The wheels made it to my house overseas in just a few days. I put them to the test over the weekend on a few local enduro race stages. The first thing I noticed is how much nimbler my bike feels when climbing compared to my old Easton Havocs. Going downhill the wheels feel sturdy. I am running 2.35 tires at 1.9psi, absolutely no problems to report. Great deal!

I had a Enduro wheelset from Sun Ringle and exchange them for this marvellous Iodine 3. Best wheels I ever had. Great weight, stiffness, 21mm inside for larger tyres and a killer bike look. Great bang for the buck
