Fast climbs and fast descents—from sunup till sundown. Truly made for the modern mountain biker, ROAM wheels use a special balance of low-inertia design, weight and strength to excel on a wide variety of terrain. They’re durable enough for hours in the saddle, yet light enough for race day.

WIDE IS FAST

The new ROAM 60’s careful combination of shape, width, design, and materials yields a new carbon wheelset that gives bikers the speed-enabling features they want—and the critical reliability they need. Lightweight, high-strength 30-mm carbon rims increase control and confidence in any terrain.

The precision engagement of DOUBLE TIME™ hubs ensure quick, consistent power delivery from the pedals, and a durable, smooth-rolling feel. The new ROAM 60 is the wheel for riders who want everything and don’t like to compromise.

TECHNOLOGIES

 

DOUBLE TIME™

Ratcheting up the smarts. This straight-aligned, 4-pawl design turns the 26-tooth ratchet ring into 52 points of contact. The result: smooth 6.9-degree engagement without reducing tooth size or offsetting internal geometry—which means serious long-term durability.

CARBON TUNED™

Strong like bull, light like carbon. Every CARBON TUNED™ rim is designed with a distinct style of riding in mind. By selectively layering woven carbon fiber at high-stress points and using unidirectional fiber throughout, SRAM creates rims that yield a remarkable level of strength and durability—while remaining lightweight and responsive.

 

WIDE ANGLE™

Take corners as fast as you want. SRAM wheels have a wide rim profile without significant added mass. This profile holds tire shape better, preventing tire roll and giving you superior comfort and traction around corners.

 

SOLO SPOKE™

With SOLO SPOKE™, you’re never wrong. SRAM wheel design eliminates the need for different spoke lengths—one size fits the entire wheel. This identical-length design means no longer wondering whether you have the right front/ rear/drive-side/nondrive-side spoke handy.

 

SPEEDBALL™

The only adjustment they’ll ever need was made back at the factory. Every part of the ball bearing is manufactured in the same factory—which means that each bearing bore can be precision machined to fit the bearing race exactly.

 

SIDE SWAP SYMMETRICAL™

Switching axles has never been easier. Threadless side caps can be installed and replaced by hand—no tools necessary. The left side cap is identical to the right one. No need to figure out where each cap is going.

 

SEEKER™

Get unbent. 3D forged and machined for lightweight strength, the flanges are angled towards the rim—allowing the spokes to be fully in-line when tensioned. The result: reduced spoke head breakage and better overall durability.

 

XD™ DRIVER BODY

XD™ is a cassette driver body design that allows the use of a 10-tooth small cog and provides an improved interface with the cassette.

 

BOOST

BOOST is a new wheel and drivetrain specification that provides: increased wheel stiffness and durability, better riding efficiency and bike handling precision, improved frame geometry with shorter chain stays, wider and stiffer suspension pivots, wider range of chainring options, and more clearance for bigger tires.

 

TORQUE CAPS

Torque Caps make the bond between hub and fork dropout stronger, with an increased surface area connecting the two. This creates a stronger, stiffer interface, giving you a more responsive front wheel and more control. So you concentrate on the most important connection, the one between your bike and the trail.
