The Wake 6560 Evolution. The 5th iteration of the Wake series and the largest step change in performance we’ve made yet. Faster. Lighter. Stiffer.

A unique and balanced combination of attributes has made the Wake 6560 the go-to wheel for those looking for peak performance: aerodynamically faster than deeper wheels, lighter and better-handling than shallower wheels, all while stiff, responsive, and lively under power. And now, in its fifth generation, the legend evolves.

Instantly recognizable versus previous versions, the shape of the Wake 6560 has substantially changed. Our new Evolution profile matches alternating deep and shallow rim sections with alternating spoke sides. Mechanically, this allows the steeper, high tension spokes (drive side rear spokes and disc side front spokes) to connect to a deeper rim section, thereby flattening those spoke angles. The change in bracing angle helps balance spoke tensions, creating a stiffer, more uniform wheel. This patented technology, Radially Staggered Lacing, is exclusive to Princeton CarbonWorks road wheels.

Wake 6560 Evolution is also incrementally wider and lighter than its predecessor. The increased width (21mm internal, 28.2mm max external) is optimized for the 25-28mm tires that professional cyclists currently race on. The result is a wheel with even better aerodynamic efficiency at all yaw angles and better composure in tricky crosswinds. Rim weight has been reduced by 10g per rim, helped by the overall shorter cord length of the inner edge. The rim brake and hooks live on. Ride how you want, with what you want. Rim brake rims will always be available and Wake 6560 Evolution will continue to have a hooked, hole-less, tubeless ready tire bed, which can accommodate clincher/tubed tires or tubeless tires with no tape needed and no tire pressure restrictions.
