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.

F3R FCC DT240

F3R FCC DT240

Your easy to handle wheel set for when it gets tough!

 

With 30mm carbon rims the FFWD F3R FCC Wheel Set is lightweight, making it optimal for climbing. It will get you over any mountain but also has very nice characteristics when riding on flat roads.

All FFWD wheels with a carbon brake surface have a model specific CBT technology to optimize the brake performance.

 

The wheels are technically able to handle riders over 100kg just like all our models. However not all terrains are suitable for every rider when it comes to Full Carbon Clincher wheels. Depending on the combination of factors like rider weight, terrain and intensity the best suitable wheel set can be chosen.

 

DT Swiss hubs
The DT240 hubs are derived from its MTB version with a closed bearing sealing that offers many kilometers of service free riding.
