The new Zipp 60 Clincher allows you to experience a precision-engineered, high-performance carbon rim at a price that won’t create financial drag. The 58mm dimpled hybrid toroidal rim is based on aerodynamic principles validated in the wind tunnel and with scores of race wins. Based on our quarter-century of aero expertise, the 60 Clincher is stiff and durable yet nimble thanks to continuous and strenuous product development. An all-new hub makes the 60 Clincher as durable as it is fast. This versatile wheelset is perfect for the road racer, the triathlete or gran fondo enthusiast who simply loves to ride.
At the heart of the 60 is the light, smooth and tough new hub, which is 10 or 11-speed compatible. Its shell is formed from ultra-strong and lightweight 7075-T6 aluminum. Sapim CX-Ray spokes maintain stiffness required for efficient power transfer. External nipples better support each spoke as it exits the rim. Stainless steel bearings ensure years of smooth riding. This hub is precision set, so it requires no pre-load adjustment.
The 60 is inspired by our pioneering rim that’s won races around the globe. Zipp’s M2CM™ technology fuses the aluminum hoop to the inner carbon section during the molding process. Our famous ABLC™ dimple pattern smoothes airflow across the rim’s surface. That 60’s aluminum brake track provides a familiar and effective stopping surface in all conditions.

The Zipp 60 replaces my previous 58mm Trigon full Carbon clinchers. Initial impression was that this is a high quality, solid wheelset. Carbon of the rim is sturdy and stiff, and doesnt have that thin flimsy feel of other carbon rims (eg Cosmics, Trigon or Bora). Hubs spun smoothly, the neat design extends to the quick releases too, small elegant levers and small nuts - its a whole package that feels FAST. Valve extensions were included too, and some thought also extended to the packaging of the instuction manuals in individual sealable sachets, and the boxing for international transport. First ride: smooth feel, road chatter is well absorbed by the carbon, and aided by a new Dura Ace 9000 drivetrain, the ride quality is excellent. When standing, the extra power transferred to the wheels can be heard in the swish of the carbon - noisy but not disturbing. Despite their weight (250g more than my previos set), I found they accellerated quickly, climbing was smooth and efficient. The real value is noticible on the downhill runs. These wheels are fast! Without added pedalling effort (just tuck down low), they allow gaps to close to other riders fast, especially on the flats and downhills. The resulting smile on your face is free. The speed and acceleration is definitely noticible. The aluminium braking surface is superb, braking is solid and immediate. Having worn out the braking surface 2 other sets of full carbon clinchers, the Zipp 60 is definitely the better alternative. Excellent speed and acceleration due to the deep section rims (with dimple design) and solid stopping power. Very pleased so far, and coupled with the fact that it only took 2 days to arrive in South Africa after placing my order, Merlin Cycles definitely raised the bar on Online Bicycle shopping.
These wheels are great value for money. I have used Mavic Cosmic Carbone and these are faster and made to last. A little noisier but look great and i like the fact they can be used for winter due to alloy braking rim
