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.

Going Fast

Track racing knows many disciplines with their own champions. Sometimes these disciplines are put into one evening where teams of two riders go to battle for victory again and again for six nights. Combined with great entertainment like music and light shows this is your typical Sixday event!

FFWD Wheels has a great “track” record in track racing and Sixday racing in particular resulting in many victories!

The London Sixday race has been covered by Dutch photographer and former professional and Sixday rider Leon van Bon. The 2016 edition is won by TeamFFWD riders Kenny De Ketele and Moreno De Pauw of Team Topsport Vlaanderen-Baloise!
