BIKE RADAR REVIEW

"What Halo has tried to do with the Mercury wheelset is offer a lightweight yet good value set-up for those who want a little aero advantage in their life. They come with 30mm Mercury deep section aluminium rims, which certainly helps to cheat the wind to a degree and makes them useful not only on the flat but equally good in most conditions, even the hills.

They run Halo's 6Drive series hubs with silky smooth sealed bearings. The 16-spoke front runs with one-cross lacing while the 24-spoke rear goes with two-cross for increased stiffness. They come with double-butted spokes, which work fine but we feel that bladed spokes would have certainly added to the aero rims to get the best out of them for time trialling. Out on the road they're certainly stiff in a straight line while still offering plenty of confidence even when really hammering into hard fast corners. As for looks, we think they're spot on with their all-black stealth finish. They're available for Campag or Shimano set-ups.

So has Halo achieved a lightweight value aero wheel package? In a word, yes. The front one tips the scales at 661g while the rear is 885g, so they tick the low weight box. As for the quality, this appears to be all there too and we had no problems during testing - so that box gets ticked. The price speaks for itself. While the Mercurys might not have the name factor of the more established players, they have all the ingredients for a good value set of aluminium aero wheels for those who don't want to go all the way with bigger, more expensive deep section wheels."

 "these replace a set of dt swiss r1800 special editions (805g front/1013g rear) that came with my giant defy advanced 1. a total weight difference of 288g.

i don't race. so, i'm not going to pretend that i'm all that sensitive to whatever subtle differences these new wheels _might_ bring to my riding.

but i do commute 40 miles round trip on a decent (surface-wise) 'A' road everyday. i bought these simply because i figured it was about time to put the originals out to pasture.....the anodized red goes beautifully with the other anodized bits that came with my defy advanced 1. i also already had a pair of red anodized light & motion stella 600 headlights on my bike that are the same anodized red color as these rims. the black and anodized red color scheme looks positively breathtaking!

as for the wheels themselves: these came out of the box as straight and true as an arrow. all the spokes were nice and tight. when they're freewheeling, they probably are louder than my old wheels. having read some other reviews that complained that a loud freewheel was a bad thing, i almost let them convince me that that was a "Con". but being honest with _myself_, i realize that's nothing to cry about! in fact, i remember when i was a kid, we used to "trick out" our bikes by attaching things like popsicle sticks and inflated balloons to our spokes to make them make as much noise as we could. to be honest, i find that clickety-click sound kinda pleasant in a way!

these wheels are outstanding value for money! i love my bike so much more with these light, new wheels on it! i can't stop looking at them!"

Pros: 

Great Value, Attractive, High Quality, Lightweight, straight and true out-of-the-box"
