The foundational philosophy of the M Series is to create full carbon fiber mountain wheels that are optimized for How, What, and Where you ride. The M60 Plus is designed specifically for riders who want the ultimate wheelset for the Plus compatible mountain bike platform.
M60 Forty Plus is
- Developed to deliver superior blend of comfort, durability, stiffness, and lightweight through a refined Plus specific profile and uni-directional carbon fiber laminates
- Optimized for latest 2.8” to 3.0” Plus size tires
- Designed to reduce Plus tire’s predisposition for pinch flatting
- Guaranteed to deliver unparalleled reliability and durability through advanced carbon engineering and manufacturing techniques
As learned through the development of the M60 HV and M70 HV, intended tire width is a very important factor to consider when designing a rim for a wheelset. With frame and tire manufacturers settling around 2.8” to 3.0” tires for the Plus segment of the market, developing a rim shape that is optimized for these tire sizes, lower pressure, and tire construction was mandatory.
Optimized for 2.8” to 3.0” Tires
The overall rim and tire diameter of 27.5” Plus system is similar to that of 29” tires. Many of the latest bikes are delivered with the ability to run both 29” and 27.5” Plus wheelsets and tires. Terrain and riding style will likely dictate which wheelset a rider will prefer but the M60 Plus will be able to tackle the same conditions the M60 and M60HV were designed to excel in.

More Volume = More Forgiving Ride
Larger tire volume and lower pressures dramatically reduce rolling resistance in rough terrain and increase traction by allowing for a larger contact patch with the trail surface.
The M60 Plus features a unique profile that saves weight and reduces the likelihood of pinch flatting a lighter weight albeit higher volume tire. This is accomplished through rim shape and construction.
Superior Ride Quality through Best in Class Stiffness to Weight
Over a decade of carbon mountain rim development has led to many of the featured refinements of the M Series, included in the new M60 Plus. One of these features is the hookless tire bead. This ensures reliable tubeless set up, greater rim strength, and an optimized tire to rim interface.
The M60 Plus is light weight thanks to the patented Molded in Spoke Hole technology and the use of proprietary removable bladder systems. On the trail, this translates into quicker acceleration, responsive handling, and unprecedented fun.
