Our Eagle 60/60 carbon fiber clincher wheelset is quite possibly the best upgrade you could make to your bike. Compared to a conventional aluminum rim, these wheels are much lighter, allowing for superior handling, faster acceleration, with a tremendous aerodynamic benefit. Within moments of riding these wheels the difference is unquestionable.
Made with high-quality Japanese Mitshubitshi Toray carbon, the quality and durability of these wheels are top notch. The toroidal construction of the rims provides a solid trailing edge that acts as a rudder to stabilize the front-end steering even under extreme wind angles.
With this wheelset you have the option between two premium hubs. The lightweight Eagle 280 hub uses a 15mm axle creating a strong, yet stiff rear wheel. For those looking for precision Swiss-engineering, you have the DT-Swiss 240 hubs equipped with their patented Star Ratcheting System offering low maintenance, ultimate strength, and quick engagement.

With all of this, plus two great hub options, the Eagle 60/60 carbon fiber clincher wheelset would make an excellent upgrade to your bike.
Light. Strong. Cheap.
It is a common belief that you can’t have all three. Either you are paying the big bucks for the market leaders or you are sacrificing weight or durability for low-cost manufacturing. At least, that is what those companies want you to think.

Safety and Reliability
Every Eagle wheelset is built with safety as the primary objective! Of course, the wheels were designed with speed in mind, but our first priority is always to keep the rider safe. This starts with our new resin formula in the braking track designed to withstand temperatures up to 240-degrees Fahrenheit. This is vital to braking performance during high speed descents as well as a stronger braking action under normal circumstances. The track is also reinforced with a titanium bead, allowing a tire pressure up to 180psi. It is important to always consider the recommended pressure printed on the tires when determining correct tire pressure.
