Light and durable, this wheelset comes in at a respectable 1579g. We build them around Mercury designed 6-bolt hubs, Sapim Race double-butted spokes, and Sapim alloy nipples. A 28 spoke, two-cross lacing pattern makes for a laterally stiff wheel with just enough pliancy to give a calmer and more sure-footed ride through the rough stuff. The axle is easy to convert from standard QR, to 15mm x 142mm or back again.
Built around our Mercury MTB Disc hub, the X3 is ready for adventure in any condition you might encounter.
DISC INTERFACE: 6 Bolt
DRIVE OPTIONS: Shimano, SRAM XX1
BEARINGS: Front: Sealed Cartridge, 6902(2)

Mercury supports standard 100mm front wheel 15mm thru-axle systems. We can convert thru-axles to accommodate quick releases if your fork requires the use of a quick release. Front axle specifications are provided by your fork manufacturer. Rear axle configuration is determined by your frame. You can find most in the specs section of the manufacturer website.
Standard = 15mm x 100mm Thru-axle Front
