Description of FFWD F3R FCT Carbon Wheelset with DT Swiss 350 Straightpull Hubs - Tubular - QR - matte black

The F3R is low-profile full carbon wheelset. With a 30mm rim-depth the F3R offers an ideal and versatile combination of aerodynamics and handling in all conditions. The rims are handmade in the Netherlands of High-Tensile TC35 carbon. This gives the rims very high strength with sufficient stiffness.

FFWD have updated their logo and changed the complete design of the wheels. More straight forward lines resulting in a bit aggressive and fast design yet distinguished by the black on black color tones. The FFWD decals are made of special UV protected material which ensures the longevity.

As always FFWD wheels are built with DT Swiss straight pull hubs and spokes but now in a 2:1 ratio. This means the drive side of the rear wheel or disc brake side of the front wheel have double the amount of spokes compared to the other side. Result is a better spoke load in the critical zones and an increase of stiffness. On front wheels the stiffness increases with 12% where on rear wheels the increase is 22% when using the 2:1 spoke ratio.

All rims are molded with a process FFWD calls ECOM (Equal Compression). This means that the rims are molded with a custom-made air bag that has the inner shape of the rim. This makes sure that the pressure/compression is equal on the entire inner surface of the rim. Result is a practically void less rim section and a smooth wall on the inside of the rim. Without voids, the carbon sheets are completely fused into one system. The rim structure is much better and you can make the rim lighter and stronger. FFWD works closely with industry partners such as SwissStop for development and testing brake surfaces and brake pad compositions. The most rims are built differently and require different brake surface compositions. FFWD evaluated the best options for each type of wheel and found ways to further improve them. The result is the Confidence Brake Technology (CBT). Each CBT equipped wheel delivers vastly improved stopping power by 30% and provides the rider with consistent, reliable and responsive braking control in all conditions.

Advice: Carbon rims can only be used with special brake pads. These are included in delivery.

All FFWD wheels are handmade and tested by the manufacturer, thereby small traces can be caused to the surface.
