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.

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.

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.

FFWD DARC Technology!


Facts and features from within the company!

Aerodynamics, durability and stiffness are just a few of the elements that drive the technoloGies at ffwd wheels.

DARCTM Technology stands for `Double Arc’ which refers to the shape and design of the FFWD carbon rim.

The revolutionary DARCTM profile dramatically improves aerodynamics by reducing drag around the wheel in both frontal and cross wind conditions. By nature, air has a tendency to stick to the surfaces it flows over which causes drag.

Our Double Arc rim profile is designed to achieve optimal aerodynamics by creating a negative pressure section that, in turn, compresses the airflow over positive section.
This will increase the pressure and results in a faster airflow and less resistance on the wheel which reduces the drag.

DARCTM Technology offers an aerodynamic advantage, improved handling, and increased lateral stiffness and is utilized on the F4, F6 and F9 series.
