Mavic Aksium One Clincher Road Wheelset
Mavic Aksium One Clincher Road Wheelset
The Aksium is a proven reference for all cyclist enthusiasts and racers in training. A wider rim profile than previous model helps the wheel to carry speed on rougher roads. This fast spinning entry level option is perfect for those looking for a wheelset which will turn heads for all the right reasons.
A low profile rim means this wheelset is a climber's delight. The use of a S6000 aluminium keeps the weight down, while 20 steel spokes add strength and are combined with brass ABS nipples, which allows for easy maintenance.

Mr Harrison Needing a replacement for a previous well worn Aksum wheel urgently during lockdown not only were Merlin one of the few with stock, and at a reasonable price, but super fast despatch and delivery.
Mr Tsang I wheelie like them *sigh* :P Fast rolling, surprisingly spritely on hills, great value and versatile. They have a moderately quiet freehub noise thats oddly satisfying at low speed. And they look great too.
Mr Lovejoy Great budget wheels, easy to fit and roll well. Fast delivery from Merlin.
L Gordon Not super lightweight but solidly built. Stays true and the freehub sounds nice.
Mr Smith Excellent every day training Wheelset, solid and reliable.
Clive I bought these wheels for my training/commuter bike so I didn't want to pay too much and weight wasn't an issue. I have done about 250 miles on them now and am still amazed at how good they feel. They roll really well, they are quiet and feel really solid. Would definitely recommend, and the price from Merlin was a bargain! Also, as the new Aksium tubeless wheels seem to have issues with tyre fitting, I wanted something reliable and easy to repair, and my 25mm Gatorskins fit easily on these wheels. They weigh about 400g more than the wheels on my posh bike, but they cost £400 less and I want to feel the difference when I ride that bike. Perfect commuter wheels.
Mr Backhouse Good set of budget wheels. Checked out trueness and spoke tighteness. Spot on. Will be using on the winter road bike.
Shark These wheels are very quiet and smooth. I like them and have done 2 rides on them. The price was perfect for me.
Nicholas Awesome wheels for road riding. I wouldn't use these for racing but good for long rides and maybe entry level racing
Matthew A set of Aksium's came on a new bike I recently purchased. I liked them so much, I decided to purchase this second set for one of my older bikes. They are a solid set of wheels, fairly lightweight and a great price. My first set has over 1000 miles on them, and the are still rock solid and perfectly true. Highly recommended, as with all Mavic products.
Sorin I have another set of these wheels since 3 years ago, very good quality for the money, They roll pretty well, braking surface has good grip and they are durable & reliable.
Alan These are an excellent wheel for the money and have the added advantage of an extended 3 year warranty from Mavic, when you register them online. I also have the disc version of these and am really pleased with the performance of both wheel sets.
Mr Nice Good wheels. Bought them as an upgrade to my stock wheels, and they were a decent upgrade. Noticeably lighter, they roll smooth and true. No problems installing them, they came with some rim tape already inside which was good, and also came with a spacer for a 8-speed cassette. Time will tell to see how much of a beating from the road these can take but Mavic aren't known for making bad wheels so I'm confident they'll hold up.
Mr Christensen Great budget wheelset at an excellent price point! Wheels are a tad on the heavy side but will meet my training needs well. Arrived true and with hubs properly adjusted. Very impressed with the speed and accuracy of Merlin Cycles handling of my order. Will certainly consider for future purchases.
Mr Araújo These wheels are very rigid and the design is identical to that of professional series, which makes their cost and benefit very interesting. Its low rolling resistance ensures good workouts without loss of performance. They are ideal for day-to-day professionals as well as amateur competitors. I recommend them.
Mr Willmott Order arrive to Australia inside 14 days - well done. Wheels packed well. I love the Mavic wheels as much as the kids love playing in the cardboard boxes! The wheels make a great ride. The sealed bearings make for no maintenance hubs, regardless of how much rain I commute through! Any day on the bike is better than the bus.
Henry These wheels are great if you are looking to upgrade from a stock wheelset, however the general consensus is they are a bit heavy. I couldn`t care less, I love them and have no complaints.
Mr White The Aksium Wheelset is exceptional considering its price and being the entry level model. The 1880 gram weight may seem high but the wheels ride much lighter and the rigidity of the wheel is excellent. The cartridge wheel bearings are super smooth and known to be durable and maintenance free. I know some real Clydesdales using these wheels and they stay true so expect minimal maintenance over a long service life. There is no comparison to the superiority of these entry level wheels and any other entry level wheels by other manufacturers I've seen and Mavic Aksiums are the best value wheels I know of.
Mr Leiper Cracking pair of wheels had 3 pairs of these over the years for winter use. Very reliable no issues at all. Usual great service from Merlin Cycles arrived quickly good price
Mr Silberman-Gorn Really nice value for what I hear is a bombproof wheelset. I noticed an immediate improvement in the stiffness of the ride, particularly while standing.
Miss Knapp I bought this wheel set to replace an Aksium wheel set from years ago. The last set served me well; an accident rendered them retired from service. I expect that this true-out-of-the-box set will perform equally well. BTW: I live in 'the colonies' and received these wheels from the UK in two....yes, two days (with expedited shipping). Incredible!
Andrei Great wheelset, not the lightest but good all rounder and bombroof
Tom Sauther Factory truing was spot on. A bit heavy but for trainers fit the bill just right. Good in wind!
Lard After advice from cycling enthusiastic friends I opted for these mavic entry level wheels to replace the set that came with my bike. I'm very happy with these they seem so much more smoother and true, than the basic originals. They do look really good and set the bike off vefy nicely. As my first upgrade I'm really pleased with these and the price for the quality you can't argue with.
Christian Edwards This is my second set of Aksiums, the first set lasted nearly 4 years. I'm a big guy (16st or 105kgs) and these wheels took a battering on the UKs potholed roads until the rear finally gave in and buckled. Not even a big failure just enough to cause a rubbing brake but at least I could get home. I did zero maintenance and they probably would have lasted longer if I had tightened the spokes , they did start to corrode around the nipples so maybe drying the wheels after a wet ride would have helped too. Overall I'm really happy, so just got another pair, coupled with Merlin's great price (20% cheaper than 4 years ago) and the excellent DPD courier service they were with me very quickly too.
David Great set of wheels, very comfortable with 25mm tyres. Slightly on the heavy side put perfect for training.
Collins Good looking wheels with a quality feel about them, smooth running good for winter and summer riding
Mr Pearson Superb wheels. Light, stiff, very good price. These knock spots off my dodgy stock wheels!
Mr Nicholson A great set of wheels, I was looking to upgrade from the standard Alex Rims on my Felt and these offered a perfect upgrade at a great price. Light weight, easy to fit and look good. Once fitted they certainly feel to run smoother and quicker. Hopefully the PR on Strava will start to improve!!!!
Tinca Replaced the stock Quaser Q2s on my KHS with these. Never knew the bike could be so quiet! Great set of wheels.
Mr Bowden I bought these to replace a set of Aksium Race I had previously bought and subsequently ruined (managed to badly dish the rear and then broke some spokes oopps). These wheels feel firmer and more responsive than the previous wheels, no flex when cornering and no spoke creak. As always with Merlin they were delivered promptly and well packaged, excellent service as always.
Mr Collin The Mavic Aksium Race Wheels which these have replaced lasted 23,000 miles so I'm hoping that these will be the same. So far so good. Also great service as they arrived in 2 days and were the cheapest online supplier.
Bradbury Mavic Aksium One wheelset, I purchased these to replace my stock wheels on my road bike after a friend recommended them to me. I must admit I was a bit dubious as to whether they would improve my ride but I was quite surprised. They are so smooth and a lot lighter than my other wheels. 633gs to be exact. My hill climbing has improved no end. And I have reduced my commute to work time by about 5 mins. I highly recommend them and at the price I paid.
Gowling Love the Mavic wheelset. This is the second pair I have had. With the last set lasting some 7 years through all kinds of weather (sun through to snow) couldn`t recommend the Aksium wheelset enough. This pair seem to roll well. Look good and were cheaper on this site than wiggle. Always good to see.
Mr Thorpe First ride on these I PB'd some hills I have been struggling to improve on. Brilliant wheels and brilliant price.
Mr Smith These wheels are great quality at a very reasonable price. I have just completed a 450 mile 4 day ride on all sorts of roads and they remainded perfectly true throughout the trip. The service from Merlin was excellent, the wheels were well packed and arrived in two days.
Mr Sgt Love these wheels, they're ideal for winter miles and training. I've found them to be pretty much bomb proof and all at a great price. Definitely my wheel of choice.
Mr Vu Absolutely the most value oriented wheels I've had. Strong, stiff, light, and inexpensive! They also look wonderful.
Ms Gordon Bought these to upgrade my stock wheels on my Allez. What a difference it made to my ride, smashed a lot of personal bests and felt far superior. These wheels are recommended by a lot of people of various forums - well worth the money
