With the new Rise 60 29in Wheel, SRAM delivers a lightweight, fast rolling, and downright bombproof hoop to hang with the most committed XC and trail riders. The Rise 60 features a new asymmetrical rim shape and uses strong, aerodynamic bladed Sapim CX Ray spokes, and the asymmetric rim shape allows the use of near equal length spokes to create a stronger overall design. SRAM uses two cross lacing with 24 spokes per wheel to reduce weight and ensure stiffness, and the straight pull design eliminates stress prone bends. The rear hub uses four bearings and has an aluminum freehub body to save weight. SRAM's cartridge bearings are sealed in house to ensure optimal performance with little maintenance. The Rise 60 offers flawless performance due its 54 tooth drive with just under seven degrees of engagement, and three pawls with a saw tooth profile that offer nine points of purchase. Finally, the Rise 60 wheel is compatible with six bolt rotors and Shimano or SRAM cassettes, and while it's not tubeless ready, the Rise 60 works with tubeless conversion kits.
