Description of FFWD Disc Carbon Disc Wheel with DT Swiss 350 Hub - Tubular - QR - black/white

Fast Forward wheels are lightweight and durable. They convince with high manufacturing quality. The rims of the wheels are handmade in the Netherlands of High-Tensile TC35 carbon. This gives the rims very high strength with sufficient stiffness.
The FFWD Disc wheels offer the best in aerodynamics and lateral rigidity. In triathlon and time trials the FFWD DISC is combined with FFWD front wheels like F4R, F6R, F9R or THREE or FIVE depending on the course and weather conditions.

TC-35 Carbon

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. So, rather than use a stiffer, but more brittle carbon type, they chose durability over ultimate stiffness. In some lay-ups FFWD add some higher modulus sheets to increase stiffness locally.

FFWD actually use multiple layers of different types of carbon. Only the outer layer is made from a 3K weave. Underneath this layer are layers of UDF (Uni-Directional Fiber) sheets. A mixture of different angles to resemble a uniform material. Because carbon fiber can handle tension very well, they have to mix up the layers to make the rim stiff and strong enough. Pressure is not a great feature of a fiber. Just think of a string being pushed. But when mixed correctly, the different angles interconnect through the resin to make it resistant to all kinds of forces.

The 3K design has a slightly lower stiffness to weight ratio than UD carbon sheets of equal fibers, but it makes up by giving the rims a bombproof feature. Why? Because when a strand (or multiple) gets cut in UDF, by crashing for instance, the sheet is compromised and the tear will expand through a larger part of the sheet at continuous workload. A weave will stop the tear because it is intervened by the crossing layer of strands. Although it is not advised to ride with a 'hole' in your rims, situations can occur where you might not know of a damaged rim or it is not an option to stop right away. Then you have the extra safety of the 3K weave to get you home.

The FFWD Disc wheel in detail

DISC series

Stiff and aerodynamic. For time trial and triathlon on the road and thanks to increased stiffness in both front and rear wheel also for the track.

FCT - Full Carbon Tubular

Ultimate competition wheels used by the professionals. Ultra light wheels for the use of tubular tires.

DT Swiss 350 hub

The best hubs based on price and quality. With 2 star ratchets this freewheel system ensures a quick and reliable engagement.

ECOM (Equal Compression)

All rims are molded with a process FFWD call 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. ECOM also provides for a smooth inside (no wrinkles) which is a great feature and not common for carbon rims. This is for instance very beneficial for the nipples. Just imagine how the force of the spoke tension is applied through the nipple seat onto the rim itself. If the nipple seat isn't smooth, the transition of the force is not clean and optimal. This might cause spoke, nipple or spoke hole failure in future. FFWD rims are made with ECOM which ensures longevity

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

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