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.

Facts and features from within the company!

RIDING WITH TUBELESS TIRES OFFERS SEVERAL ADVANTAGES OVER THE STANDARD TIRE WITH INNER TUBE COMBINATION.
THINK ABOUT PUNCTURE PROTECTION, LOWER TIRE PRESSURES AND LESS ROLLING RESISTANCE.

 

INSTALLATION OF THE TUBELESS SYSTEM WITH USE OF TUBELESS SEALANT IS MANDATORY!

 

In order to make the best use of your tubeless wheels please follow our instructions and recommendations.
» Clean the rim bed with degreaser before applying the tubeless tape
» Apply the tubeless rim tape to the complete rim and make sure the beginning
and end of the tape overlap 10cm to 15cm
» Make sure the tubeless tape is pressed to the rim bed firmly
» Make a small hole in the tubeless tape at the valve hole (preferably with the tip
of a sharp pair of scissors)
» Place the tubeless valve in the rim and make sure the o-ring covers the valve
hole on the outside of the rim
» Mount the tubeless tire(s) as per instructions of the tire manufacturer (do not
use metal tools to mount the tire in order not to damage the rim)
» Do not inflate the tire before inserting the tubeless sealant
» Fill the tubeless tire(s) with tubeless sealant (THIS STEP IS MANDATORY) as per instructions of the sealant manufacturer
» Make sure the sealant is evenly divided within the tubeless tire
» Inflate the tire taking the maximum inflation of 8.5 bar (123 psi) for the
rims in consideration (if the tire has a lower maximum tire pressure please
take this in consideration)
» Check if the tire is placed correctly and follows the rim profile
» Reduce tire pressure to your preferred riding pressure
