Description of FFWD Falcon 2-Spoke Carbon Front Wheel with DT Swiss 350 Hub - Tubular - QR - white-black

The fastest wheel for time trial and triathlon use!

The FFWD Falcon project started by taking the existing idea of the fastest wheel and take this to the next level.
This wheel is based on only two carbon spokes with NACA profile and a variable rim height between 48mm and 90mm, all aspects are designed to reduce the drag behind the wheel. From the first tests this wheel showed remarkable improvements compared to the more traditional time trial wheels out there.
The Falcon is manufactured using 800 and 1000 TORAY© UD carbon fibers. The materials and lay up schedule utilized are carefully chosen to reach the optimal balance and stiffness to weight ratio for this revolutionary wheel.
Additionally during the development of the Falcon the rim width was particularly important to make the wheel more aerodynamic in combination with wider tyres.

This unique UCI approved design results in the least amount of aerodynamic resistance possible which significantly reduces drag and increases watt savings. In wind conditions most frequently encountered in the real world (0-10 degrees), the Falcon outperforms all competitor front wheels by a savings up to 9 watts.

FFWD Falcon Tubular Frontwheel

For road time-trials and triathlons the Falcon is offered as single front wheel. This tubular model features 3K Nano brake tracks and a DT Swiss 350 QR hub.

Equal Compression Manufacturing

All FFWD 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.

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

FFWD Warranty

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.
