The concept behind the Eagle 60/88 carbon fiber clincher wheelset is unmistakable. This thrilling wheel combo was designed to fly. With the notable features of the 60mm front carbon fiber wheel, including its unparalleled crosswind stability, we added a deep, 88mm, toroidal rim in the rear providing an even greater aerodynamic benefit.
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.

At Eagle Bicycles, we have proven that you don’t have to spend $3000 for a high quality, carbon fiber cycling wheelset. You can now indulge in the Eagle Bicycles wheel line-up without sacrificing on quality as these wheelsets come stock with all the bells and whistles a rider could ask for.
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.
