Mr LanePurchased wheelset with confidence based upon owning Ksyrium ES wheelset since '08 with > 20K problem-free miles. Only ridden new wheels 10 times but can say they are very solid, great handling and am confident they will take abuse without hassle for many years to come. No better training or rec riding wheels available for the money - not to mention the inclusion of decent tires / tubes. Also, Merlin free shipping overseas in two days - come on! Great service!
Paul JAlready have a pair of these wheels on my other bike, but I was willing to consider other options as there are plenty of options at this price bracket. I've spoken to loads of cycle shops about wheels but the only one that seemed to be interested in what I wanted was the guy at Merlin. He said that Fulcrum and Mavic at this level were pretty similar, but Fulcrum maybe edged it, however, with an additional 10% discount and tyres included it was a bit of a no brainer for the Mavics. Wheels are great, they look brilliant, spin up fast and are pretty much bombproof. Not so sure about the tyres, but as they're basically free that's a massive bonus and they seem pretty good compared to a lot of more expensive options. I ride to keep fit so these wheels are fantastic for me, but some Fulcrum Racing Zeros are still on the wish list. Really impressed with Merlin above all else.
ReyesI bought these wheels as upgrades from the OEM Shimano RS11's that came with my bike. These Mavic wheels are definitely lighter, more responsive, and better looking IMO. Absolutely no buyers remorse here. I would definitely buy another pair should the need arise.
Mr klaverweidenI've got about 500 miles on these now. Just completed a century on them yesterday on some rough roads. Great replacement wheels. noticed close to a 1 mph addition to my average speed! Climbing has also been a pleasure on these!
Mr WaldenI have always been slightly sceptical of reviews that I have read about the wonders of upgrading your wheel set. However, I took the plunge this summer and upgraded to these from standard bontrager wheels on a Trek 2.3. Wow. What a difference. They are ultra smooth, fast and are also pretty good looking wheels. Although they seem to be fast all round wheels I have really noticed the difference when climbing hills. Overall an excellent upgrade to any bike over the standard wheelset that most bikes come with. On the Merlin front... They were delivered promptly in a well packaged box. Excellent service.
TedNight and day difference compared to my CAAD8's supplied wheels. Unsure if I was riding through treacle previously. Came to Merlin to get Aksiums, but saw these
Mr morrisgood looking wheels and should prove up to withstanding our roads with sealed bearings, but they have a noisy freewheel from the hub so dont roll as smoothly as my ultegras, the tyres are a nice touch and a good bonus
Mr WoodsI have only done about 100 miles on them so far, but they seem a great set of wheels. The delivery service by Merlin was second to none. The wheels were ordered at 1400 one day and arrived at 1000 the next day.
Mr RobertsBought these Mavics as replacement for my existing Bontragers, and saved 800g of rotating mass, which has made a massive difference to my bike, it accelerates much quicker and makes hills more enjoyable !!! Only ridden a few times, but wheels staying perfectly true and Im a big guy (16 stone), even the clicky rear wheel becomes less noticable after just one ride. These wheels are often specced on bikes around
Mr CortinasExcellent Wheel set . Great upgrade from Stock wheels. Merlin Service and prices are A++
Mr HancherGood set of wheels really improved the ride, helps on the hill climbs too. Just looking forward to some good weather to give them a big run.
Mr ChamberlainLovely wheelset . Great quality and they look great. Got these whilst an offer was on so pretty cheap too. Would have no reservation to recommend these wheels or Merlin Cycles.
JackGreat set of wheels, hubs spin very freely, response on the road is ideal for a big bloke like me. I will be using these as my training wheels for sure from now on.
Mr ShieldsGreat product with an amazing experience getting it to the States.
Mr HathwayA decent set of wheels. Look good, nice and stiff on the corners and roll pretty well to. I've only ridden them once so far can't comment on duability. Was concerned the free hub was a bit noisy but the ony time I noticed it was free wheeling down to my garage at the end of a fifty miler. Tyres are nothing special but fine as set of training/winter tyres.
Mrs wilsonFantastic wheels-look good too
Mr AllenLovely pair of wheels. Excellent service from Merlin cycles, as always. And the best prices on the net.
Mr StidhamI received these wheels and they are outstanding! The graphics look great on my 2011 Trek Madone 5.2. My bike is red white and black and the white graphics and black spokes really set my bike off. I had a pair of Bontrager Race wheels and I crashed on a sanctioned ride and destroyed my front wheel. So, I choose these wheels and couldn't be happier, though I haven't been able to ride my bike because I'm recovering from a broken collar bone!!! Thanks Merlin for yor service and these wheels!
