SRAM has made some subtle but significant changes to its carbon Roam 60 wheelset, making it wider and introducing a new hub system designed with broad compatibility in mind.
Wider and off the hook
The updated Roam 60 wheelset has carbon rims with a generous 30mm internal width
Our primary gripe with the original Roam 60 wheelset was its narrow profile.The meager 21mm internal width was out of step with industry trends toward wider rims. It appears that SRAM has taken this criticism to heart. This second-generation Roam 60 wheelset rolls on hookless carbon rims with an impressive internal width of 30mm.
Like the first-gen Roam 60, the new wheelset uses 24 straight-pull spokes in a two-cross lacing pattern. Two other welcome carry-overs are the use of symmetrical endcaps, so there’s never a need to worry about which end cap goes on the right or left side of the hub, and SRAM’s Solo Spoke system, which simplifies spoke replacement by using a single spoke length per wheel size for the front, rear, drive and non-drive sides of the wheel.
New for Roam 60 is a sticker pack in eight different colors to help riders get all matchy-matchy.
One hub system for every bike
