CBT: CONFIDENCE BRAKE TECHNOLOGY

At FFWD Wheels we are constantly working on improvement of our products. In this process of product deve- lopment we learned that the combination of compounds will make the difference between good or great. As techniques develop quickly it remains a continuous process at FFWD Wheels!

FFWD Wheels applies three different brake track layers depending on the type of rim or type of use.

CBT BBS
All FFWD tubular (road) rims have a Basalt brake surface (BBS). Reducing heat production and improving brake performance in combination with the supplied SwissStop black prince brake pads.

CBT 1.5
Based on 1.5k CARBON structure in combination with High TG Custom Compound Resin. Increasing braking power by 30% in all conditions, more durable and doesn’t make noise while braking.

CBT 3H
The F3R FCC has an exclusive brake surface. Mixing three different composites and a copper layer with a High TG Resin enables fast heat reduction and high brake efficiency. Durable and capable of higher tire pressure.

Our Master Wheel Builders have only one goal: to let you go faster than you’ve ever gone.

Whether that’s on the road, off road, track, down hill or any other surface you’re looking to shoot across. To do so each hand built wheel is carefully crafted to provide you with the perfect balance between durability, stability, sturdiness, weight and flexibility, calibrated meticulously to fit your desired activity. We could take you through all the science and craftsmanship behind every type of wheel, but there’s really just one thing you need to know about them: No matter what you’ll throw at them, they can take it. And them some. We promise.

Our wheels will provide you with a faster and smoother ride, unlike anything you’ve ever felt before. As soon as you install them you’ll feel that instant increase of potential. You will go faster – that’s a given – how much faster is up to you. So go out there and go all in. Your gear is up for it.

History

Building fast, strong carbon wheels: that was our goal as we started our company FFWD Wheels in the year of 2006. Craftsmanship, high quality and durability are our most important values. In a few years of time FFWD Wheels has grown into a company with a global distribution network and a solid reputation.
All FFWD Wheels are handmade at our company in the Dutch town of Zwolle. Our wheel builders pay close attention to every wheel. This leads to wheels which are feather light and strong as iron: FFWD Wheels are no mass product. FFWD Wheels are of high quality, hand built in the Netherlands.
