Description of FFWD F4R FCT Carbon Wheelset with DT Swiss 350 Straightpull Hubs - Tubular - QR - matte black

Proven aerodynamics and an extremely light weight are combined in the F4R wheels, making it the best choice for an all-round wheelset. The 45 mm deep 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.

The DARC technology stands for ‘Double Arc’ which refers to the profile of the rim. This will increase the pressure just like on the topside of an airfoil. Increased pressure results in a faster airflow and less resistance on the wheel which reduces the drag.

FFWD uses High-Tensile TC-35 carbon for the majority of the lay-up. This gives the rim a very high strength with sufficient stiffness to cope with hard application of the wheels. FFWD actually uses multiple layers of different types of carbon. Only the outer layer is made of a 3K weave. Underneath this layer are layers of UDF (Uni-Directional Fiber) sheets. A mixture of different angles to resemble a uniform material. The different angles interconnect through the resin to make the wheel resistant to all kinds of forces.

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.

This wheelset is for tubular tires that need to be glued onto the rim.

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