Description of FFWD F4R CAC Carbon/Alloy Wheelset with DT Swiss 240s Straightpull Hubs - Clincher - QR - matte black

Lightweight Allrounder!

The rims of the F4R wheels are handmade in the Netherlands of High-Tensile TC35 carbon. This gives the rims very high strength with sufficient stiffness. For optimum braking performance and added stability the wheels have a milled aluminum braking surface and a welded rim joint.

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.

The front wheel features 20 radial straightpull spokes and the rear wheel features the 2:1 ratio 24 which brings these characteristics to an even higher level. The DT Swiss 240 hubs offer the same performance as their even higher quality relatives, but have slightly less weight-optimized components and thus offer the same reliability at a significantly lower price. Compatible with Shimano 9/10/11s cassettes.

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 use 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.

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