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.

warranty policy

We all have a breaking point. Of course our wheels are not indestructible. They’ll take any abuse that’ll make you go faster, not abuse in general. When something does go wrong though, know that you can rely on us to get you back up to speed as fast as possible.

Main Policy

FFWD warrants its products to be free from manufacturing defects for a period of two years after original date of purchase. This warranty only applies to the original owner and is not transferable. The seller is obliged to guarantee the item sold against latent defects which render it unsuitable for its intended usage, or reduce this usage to such an extent that the buyer would not have purchased the item, or that he would have purchased @it only at a lower price if he had known the latent defects existed.

 

Returning a FFWD wheel

Any return to FFWD for examination will be handled by the customer who will ensure that the product’s packaging is appropriate, that the product is insured, if necessary, and that the shipping costs are paid. Don’t forget to include the invoice with the wheel, as well as your name, address and phone number. IMPORTANT: If you want to return your wheel to FFWD, please make sure to return it without the tubular or clincher tire, without the sprockets and without the quick release skewer.

Warranty’s limitation

The FFWD warranty covers exclusively the manufacturing defects of its products and excludes, notably, from its scope of application any damage, prejudice and, more generally, any direct or indirect consequence which would result from bad use or failure to respect user instructions, the lack of maintenance or a non-conforming use of the product. The FFWD warranty does not cover parts that are subject to normal wear and tear. Wear and tear parts are subject to damage as a result of normal use and riding in conditions / usage for applications other than recommended. Wear and tear parts are identified as: • brake pads. • brake surface of tubular and clincher rims. • ball bearings IMPORTANT: Always use FFWD carbon brake pads when using FFWD full carbon wheels. Do not forget to change your carbon brake pads when you’re going to ride with wheels with a brake surface other than carbon. Debris from the brake surface might get stuck in the carbon brake pads which will result in unrepairable damage to your
