FFWD Wheels specializes in Hand Built Carbon Wheels which are all assembled at our Head Quarter in the Dutch town of Zwolle. Our wheel builders pay close attention to every wheel and work from start to finish on each wheel. FFWD Wheels are no mass product! FFWD Wheels are of high quality; light, fast and strong! Hand-built in the Netherlands.
All parts of the wheels have been selected for their high-quality standards and reputation. Hubs by DT Swiss, spokes and nipples from Sapim and DT Swiss. Together with our rims, the FFWD wheel builders create a durable product to make you go faster.
With one of the three hub options by DT Swiss (FFWD, DT240 or DT180) and Sapim CX-Ray or DT Aerolite spokes wheels are built in a traditional configuration with 20 spokes in the front wheel and 24 spokes in the rear wheel. The spokes are attached to the rim with DT Swiss Pro-Lock brass nipples. All FFWD rims are designed for outside spoke nipples to make service very easy.
During the building process of a wheel, spokes are being stretched to prevent you have to true the wheels after a certain time or distance. By stretching the spokes with lots of force you might not have to true the wheels for years.
The best of aerodynamics and speed!
These 60mm rims are built with UD carbon for more stiffness and feature FFWD’s DARC profile for the best aerodynamics. The stiffness of this set makes it the choice of sprinters on the road where the aero advantages are key reason for triathletes to choose these wheels. The new 3K Nano Brake Technology increases stopping power in all conditions as well as product lifetime. Going wider to 26mm outside rim width these are tubeless ready. The new FFWD design features UV protected logo’s.
Built with DT Swiss hubs based on straight pull spokes stiffness and spoke loads are optimised. Adding the 2:1 spoke ratio on the rear wheel brings these characteristics to an even higher level.
