The ultimate weapon for triathlon and time trials!
The FFWD F9 series is built for speed and includes the ultimate wheels for triathlon and time trials. The 90mm deep carbon rims features a proprietary DARC ‘Double Arc’ aerodynamic profile and 3K Nano Brake Technology. The rims of the F9R-FCC wheels 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.
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 350 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.
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.
3K Nano Brake Technology
FFWD continuously tests and evaluates new technologies for carbon clincher and tubular rims and have identified materials and manufacturing methods to further improve the braking surface for great durability and performance. The result is 3K Nano Brake Technology or 3K NBT.
Nano Brake Technology is based on a 3K Carbon Nanotube structure with properties ideal for a rim’s brake surface. The benefits include very low thermal conductivity and expansion coefficient, high tensile strength and elasticity. Combined with a custom High TG Compound Resin, the 3K NBT offers reduced heat build up and faster dissipation and an overall increase in braking power by 30% over previous models.
Confidence Brake Technology
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.
Please Note: 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.
FFWD offers a manufacturer warranty* of 3 year after registration on: http://www.ffwdwheels.com/service/register-your-wheels/
Additionally crash replacement* is available on the FFWD Crash Replacement website.
*Please send your warranty/crash replacement requests directly to the manufacturer, FFWD promises a maximum processing time of five working days plus shipping time!
