Description of FFWD F4R FCC TLR Carbon Wheelset with DT Swiss 240 Straightpull Hubs - Clincher - QR - Campagnolo ED / white-black

Lightweight all rounder featuring advanced DT Swiss 240 hubs!

The F4R is a full carbon wheelset with medium profile. With a rim height of 45 mm, the F4R offers noticeable aerodynamic advantages with relatively easy handling. The rims are handmade in the Netherlands from high-strength TC35 carbon. This makes the rims very tough 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 240 hubs are the mid range of DT Swiss but they offer top class performance at a competitive weight. A special feature of the rear hub is the ratchet drive freehub system. It is equipped with two 36T ratchet rings.

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.

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.

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

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