Description of FFWD F6R-C Carbon/Alloy Wheelset with DT Swiss 240s Hubs - Clincher - black/white/celeste

Rouleur!
This is the most chosen wheel set for the tourist rider and competitive rider looking for strong carbon wheels for clinchers. The F6R-c also comes with a DARC™ profile on the 58mm deep carbon clincher rims. It's a great aerodynamic wheel that accelerates quickly and maintains speed very well. The joint of the aluminum brake surface is welded and the rim has wear indicators to advise when the rim needs to be replaced.

The DT Swiss 240s is the top-end hub for extremely lightweight wheelsets. The advantages of the 240s are their extremely low weight, their high-class contact free double flange seal system against water and dirt, their bearings made of stainless steel and a special coating wich guarantees for smooth rolling characteristics.

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.

Compatible with Shimano (including spacer) or Campagnolo 9/10/11s.

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