2018 SRAM Roam 60 carbon fiber 29er mountain bike wheels

When the Roam 50 debuted in January, it became the carbon option for 29ers since the existing 60 was only for 27.5″ wheels. But with so many brands making bigger, faster and more aggressive twenty niners for everything from all-mountain to downhill, the need was there.

The all-new SRAM Roam 60 29″ mountain bike wheels get a purpose built design, with a higher spoke count and lacing pattern, new hub shells and a tough carbon rim. Like the 50s, they’re reasonably priced for the feature set…

The rims are hookless and tubeless ready. Compared to the more XC-oriented Rise wheels, these are for Trail and Enduro use.

The new hub shells revise the spoke flanges, which looks like it’s pushing them just a bit further out and a bit taller to improve bracing angle. Inside is their Double Time system, which pairs four offset pawls to provide 56 points of engagement (6.9º rotation).

  • UD carbon fiber rim with matte finish
