Maybe not the lightest wheels in the world but as soon as you look at them & feel Mavic's legendary build quality you know they will take you anywhere & get you back safely ! There's nothing to touch the Cross Rides for the price! Merlin's excellent pricing could mislead into believing that you're buying low grade budget wheels. Think again & just accept the fact that you've blagged a bargain! As for Merlin's uber-fast delivery, mine arrived within 24 hours :-)
Bought these wheels to replace my standard giant wheels on my trance x3, which I found to be fairly heavy, these are much lighter, run very smooth, look really good. It has made the bike so much better to ride. The mavic wheels I`ve had in the past have lasted well, hope these do the same.
And for Merlin, the same fast delivery, prices that can`t be beaten, and ease of use on their website, brilliant.
Quality set of wheels, Light and perfect for the type of riding i enjoy! excellent service as per usual
These wheels are fantastic for such a low cost. they look great on the bike and run perfectly. I can't praise Merlin Cycles Ltd enough. Their service and prices are the best around. Don't even look anywhere else now. Thanks very much for everything.
A very decent set of wheels at a great price, I couldn't find them cheaper anywhere else. Great packaging and delivery service. Will definitely be using Merlin again
Great wheels, fast delivery - usual great Merlin service
Good looking wheels with the flat spokes and much lighter than my old Mavics.
I was able to swap over all my existing bits really easily and quickly.
I haven't done a track with them yet but they felt good on a test ride on the road
Arrived on time as arranged. A cracking set of wheels at a very attractive price which have been a brilliant upgrade on my Spesh FSR XC. Full marks to Merlin and thanks. :-)
I've been running an old set of these for years with no problems apart from the occasional pinged spoke. Bought these for my wife's bike. They look better, are a little more slick round the spoke attachment but otherwise seem pretty much the same.
Cannot comment on the longevity of this set but I cannot complain about mine.

Nice looking set of wheels, especially for the price, Bought them in the sale
These are great wheels and not the first ones I've bought. I've taken a previous pair to various trail centres and given them plenty of abuse without bending them. For the price they're unbreatable and delivery was as quick as always - bargain!
