Mercury Wheels might not enjoy quite the panache as some other carbon wheels in the game, but the brand certainly has a strong racing pedigree that shouldn't go without mention. Teams like Monster Media Racing and Cycle-Smart count on the M5C Disc Wheelset as the perfect do-it-all depth carbon rim laced to durable and smooth spinning Mercury Pro center lock disc hubs. The model name, M5 gives you an idea of the depth the rims are packing. More specifically, they are 55mm deep. Rim width is the other critical measurement to know and the tale of the tape on the M5 is 24mm wide letting you get more volume in your tires so you can run lower PSI for a smoother ride that really lets you heel the bike over on fast descents and crit turns. Additionally, lower pressure tires have the ability to decrease rolling resistance and the additional rim width better matches the profile of a wider tire so the aerodynamic properties are preserved. The construction of the M5's uses Mercury's Dual Carbon Layer Process or DLP. DLP blends high- and mid-moduli carbon fibers to balance between the lightweight and stiffness of the former and the fatigue-resistance and durability of the latter. The M5s are finished off with Sapim's popular CX-Ray spokes and alloy nipples. DT Swiss handles the spinning duties and the star ratchet provides reliable engagement when it's time to step on the gas. Durable bearings and tool-free service are just a few other features that define this hubset as a workhorse in the pro peloton. Stiff axles and proven hub geometry build up stiff and responsive wheelsets that feel solid under hard efforts and offer confident stability at speed. The Mercury M5C Disc Wheelset comes with a Shimano/SRAM 11-speed compatible freehub body, valve extenders, and rim strips. Mercury backs up the wheels with a 2-year warranty.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
