RISE 60 Wheels
New hubs. New rims. New RISE. Building on a legacy of wheel technology for serious XC and trail riders, the new RISE 60 delivers unparalleled speed and pedaling efficiency. The hook-less rim design results in a wheel that’s lighter, stronger and more resistant to the impact of XC racing. DOUBLE TIME hub and pawl geometry integrates seamlessly with any ride for a frictionless experience on the trail. And from a branded sticker kit to 27.5” and 29” size options, you can always customize RISE to the way you want to ride. RISE HIGHER.

- CARBON TUNED™
Strength and stiffness where you need it, lightweight like you want it. Proprietary SRAM carbon lay-up design increases thickness and stiffness at critical stress areas. Tapered, terraced, carbon architecture ensures the greatest weight savings without compromising strength.
- 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.
- PREDICTIVE STEERING™
Unique fork, axle and compression technologies combine at the core of Predictive Steering. Fork twisting is reduced thanks to the large-diameter TORQUE TUBE axle that creates an unbreakable bond, locking the lowers in place and maximizing torsional stiffness. A wider hub flange spacing results in a stronger, more responsive wheel. The new Maxle Ultimate completes the connection with a tighter, stronger clamping force than you’d expect with a quick release compression system. Compatible with the SRAM PREDICTIVE STEERING hub and the RISE XX, RISE 60 and ROAM 50 29" Wheels, and featured on RockShox RS-1.
- SIDE SWAP™
Switching axles has never been easier. Threadless side caps can be installed and replaced by hand—no tools necessary.
SIDE SWAP SYMMETRICAL side caps refuse to take sides. The left side cap is identical to the right one. No need to figure out where each cap is going.
- 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.
Front + Rear + Drive-Side + Nondrive-Side = 1 Spoke
The only adjustment they’ll ever need was made back at the factory. Every part of the ball bearing comes from the exact same supplier—which means that each bearing bore can be precision machined to fit the bearing race exactly. With tolerances this tight, the days of adjusting play after every ride are over.
- XD™ Driver Body
XD is a new cassette driver body design that allows the use of a 10 tooth small cog and provides an improved interface with the cassette.

Huffington Post's Max Gladwell recently completed the Point-to-Point 80-mile Singletrack race in Utah focused on reviewing the new SRAM RISE 60 Wheels, SRAM Guide Ultimate brakes, SRAM XX1 Quarq equipped drive train and RockShox RS-1. In nearly 8 hours of non-stop racing that descends and ascends over 10,000 feet ranging from 7k to almost 10k feet he gave much praise to our products for getting him through.
"The RISE 60 is a very light set of wheels, with the weight even rivaling that of road bike wheels...The rims and spokes held their own in terms of strength and stiffness...We can't comment on the weight of these wheels enough and how they changed the ride. Out of the corners, the RISE responded to every push of the pedal and was incredibly snappy. The combination of the straight pull spokes and carbon rims makes the RISE one of the stiffest cross country wheels that we have tested. The rise climbs like a dream, when it comes to climbing, weight is paramount."
