This Fast Forward F9R Carbon Tubular Wheelset 2013 is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
A full carbon tubular wheelset with 90mm DARC profile rims and high quality FFWD hubs.
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
This wheelset comes with exclusive wheel bags, quick release sets, valve extensions and brake pads.
FFWD DARCtm technology is short for ‘Double Arc’ which refers to the profile of the rim. The revolutionary DARCTM profile improves aerodynamics dramatically by reducing the drag. Air has the characteristic to stick to its surface and by creating a negative arc section the air will be compressed more at the positive section. 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.
We 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. So, rather than use a stiffer, but more brittle carbon type, we chose durability over ultimate stiffness. In some lay-ups we add some higher modulus sheets to increase stiffness locally.
We actually use multiple layers of different types of carbon. Only the outer layer is made from a 3K weave. Underneath this layer are layers of UDF (Uni-Directional Fiber) sheets. A mixture of different angles to resemble a uniform material. Because carbon fiber can handle tension very well, we have to mix up the layers to make the rim stiff and strong enough.
Based in The Netherlands, FFWD Fast Forward ® is a young high-end brand, specializing in high speed wheels. Carbon only. Period. FFWD’s goal is to deliver fast, lightweight and durable wheels to the Road, Cyclocross, Track & Triathlon market. Our primary focus is on outstanding craftsmanship, quality and design. All spoked wheels are laced and hand built in Holland by master wheel-smith Zoran Kabala in Assen. Each set of wheels is meticulously put together, trued to the ‘Mµ’ and released into the world of speed with a unique serial number. Only the best of ingredients (read components) are being used! High Tensile TC35 Carbon rims, FFWD or DT Swiss hubs, Sapim CX Ray or DT Aerolite spokes, Brass nipples together with a lot of intrinsic wheel builder finger skills ensure top quality and long term serviceability.
